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: 

Steve S. is $20 happy.  His daughters came home and have left.  He enjoyed the time with them and admired how autocratic they are.  He is also happy about Geoli joining our club.

Art is $20 and talked about the World Peace Day on the 21st.  His daughter helped to introduce the legislation that resulted in Hawaii being the first state to honor World Peace Day.  He also shared that his background on his Zoom was a picture taken the same day as Barry Taniguchi's memorial service.  

Miyuki L. is $20 happy.  She had a "new" Rotarian visit her booth on Saturday and to acknowledge Misa S. as a new member.

Bob J. is $20 happy because the Blood Bank called and wants a donation of his blood.

Bryan is contributing to Happy Dollars but more as an announcement.  The owner's parent of Seaside Restaurant recently passed.

Naomi M. is $10 happy and wanted to thank Sharon, Tim, Mary and Art for their work in Rotary and the community.

Barbara H. is $5 happy to see Steve J. on Zoom.  

Alan O. is $10 because he made satellite contact with his radio and the 3 Kolea's in his yard are "fattening up" nicely.

Tim H. is $10 happy because he got to meet Misa in person.

Thank you all for your generosity!
