Welcome to another issue of our weekly bulletin! Find out what we covered during the last weekly meeting, and what we learned from our speaker.  

HRYF Give Aloha

Richard announced Foodland's Give Aloha campaign that began September 1 and ends September 30.  When you buy at Foodland, add a donation to HRYF when you checkout and Foodland contributes about 20% more to your donation-- for example, a $50 donation becomes $60.  To designate HRYF, the code is 77199; the cashier may have to look it up under Oahu charities.  Give a copy of your Foodland receipt to Richard for credit.

Dictionary Project

Dayday announced the schedule for our annual dictionary distribution project to promote literacy.  Students write their names in the dictionary as theirs to keep.  Sign up with Dayday or online:  Waiakea Elementary, September 5, 8:30am; Hilo Union, September 6, 12:10pm; Waiakeawaena, September 13, 10:00 and 11:00am; Ka 'Umeke Ka'eo, September 14, 9:00am.  


Dayday distributed the Oktoberfest tickets.  Due to the brisk sales of tables, each member was given 5 tickets (instead of the usual 6) to sell.


This Week's Speaker

Networks Past, Current, & Future for Big Island and State
Hawaiian Telcom has invested significant infrastructure that positions Hawaii for the future.  Bryan L. introduced Jason Thune, who explained the deployment of broadband fiber optics to serve the rural underserved areas of the Big Island and undersea cable projects connecting us to the mainland and beyond.
