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: 

Yu Yok P. was $50 happy.  Her program at Imiloa just wound down from the first session and they are gearing up for the 2nd session.  The first session was a big success and she is amazed at the kids and the teachers.  She recognized Geoli for her company's contribution of water during their second session.

Sharon S. is $5 happy because Mika is loving the Imiloa program.  She is another $5 happy because in lieu of a cruise, she "travelled" to various locations of the world to get her refrigerator fixed.  After 6 weeks, her refrigerator is fixed.

Mary B. is $30 happy.  $20 for the two amazing Hawaii Island women who won the Nobel Peace Prize and $10 for another refrigerator story.

Virginia and Bob J. are $10 happy that they can join our Rotary meeting every week and contributed to their well-being and sanity.

Tim is $2.25 happy because Bob J. agreed to map out the locations of the Peace Poles around the Big Island with the idea that there will be a brochure allowing folks to have a Peace Pole Pilgrammage.

Ken B. is $20 happy.  $13 for 13 years of happy marriage and $7 for the return of his wife and daughter from Japan.

Tom W. is $10 happy.  $5 to compliment Yu Yok on her new hairdo and $5 for catching his first trout.  Tom is in Montana.

Doug A. is $50 happy.  10 years ago today, he began his cycling journey across the US.  He acknowledged Richard C. for his contributions to HRYF, our work on the Veteran's project, Mary B. for her contribution to the District auction, Tim H. for his work with RYLA and Yu Yok for her Imiloa programs.

Thank you all for your generous contributions!
