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.  

Reminder:  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 received thank you notes from a grateful 3rd grade class that she passed around.  


Katie is collecting silent auction items; drop off to her office.  Mehana committed to provide all of our beer.  We will review volunteer sign-ups at next week's meeting.
This Week's Speaker
Are There Aliens?
Exoplanets are planets beyond our own solar system. Thousands have been discovered in the past two decades. The discovery of these worlds is one of the hottest topics in astronomy today.  As explained by Professor Michtoshi Yoshida, director of Subaru Telescopes, Subaru is actively engaged in detecting conditions similar to earth that could support life, such as water.  The initial research is premised on alien life requiring similar conditions as life on earth; but that is not to rule out that aliens could exist supported by conditions different from life on earth.
