Club Anniversary 


Emmeline dePillis -- Happy Birthday!
Allen Novak -- Happy Birthday!
Thank you Mary B. for leading the group in the Birthday song.


Lorraine got a text at 4:06 am announcing that the Hawaii Tribune Herald Mobile edition had an article about the Boys and Girls Club Donation from Old Navy.  One of the featured pictures showed Barbara Hastings front and center with Sharon Scheele in the background.

Happy Dollars

Keep your happy dollar donation in an envelope and bring it to the next in-person meeting. You may contact Deborah Beaver to make a payment with your credit card or mail your check to the club. Thank you.
In addition, you may now pay from our new online payment system: 

Barbara H. is $10 happy for being featured in the newspaper.

Virginia J. is $10 happy -- today's presentation is her first Zoom presentation.

Sharon S. is $5 happy -- Mika loved the program at Imiloa and encouraged anyone with children to consider enrolling their child in their Halau Lamaku Program.

Alan O. is $10 happy -- He had the first sighting of a kolea in his yard, he is winning the war with weeds in his yard and he finally was able to get a haircut.

Mary B. is $5 concerned.  She shared that with COVID-19 mortgage companies have extended their time frame to closing to 45 days and it has put a different twist on how real estate transactions are progressing.  It is a logistical nightmare.

Thank you everyone, for your generosity.
