  • James Tyrin – Report of Camp Agape (by Alan):
    It was an absolutely beautiful Saturday at the Pa’ani Ranch (Mt. View) where the Camp Agape program hosted 82 keikis for a full day of fun activities.  Rotarians Mike Carroll, James Tyrin, and Alan Okinaka were part of 120 volunteers to create a special day for youths of parents and guardians who are incarcerated in prison, and this doesn’t include the mentors who work closely with each child.  Welcoming the youths with a corridor of “high-fives,” horse-back riding, archery, Hawaiian games, arts and crafts, and dancing created a continuous special day for everyone, not just for the keikis, but also the volunteers.  It is amazing to see over 120 smiling faces for the whole day.

President Pro-Tempore
Aloha Everyone,
Enjoyed being your pro tempore president for two meetings.  I had two enjoyable mornings and I hope you did too.
When Carol VanCamp, hobbling, attended the meeting after a long absence, I was overwhelmed by the happy dollars given to give her a Rotary welcome back.  I swear I saw a wisp of smoke coming out of Sandy Sakaguchi's pen tip as she scribbled furiously to keep up with the happy dollars flowing.
Thank you for tolerating the Rotary quiz.  Now, you got to admit that it was interesting that the first Rotary project was building public toilets in Chicago.  Wonder what people did before the toilets were built?
Our one month old Rotarian, Steven Sylvester, did a great job getting us to know him.  Who would have figured he can marry people.  I was akamai in answering his question, "I have married three women, but I don't have a wife." and I was awarded a bag of Portuguese salt!  Yum!
Mahalo again to the members who provide the logistical support for every meeting.  These menehune members get there before the meeting begins and they are the last to leave.
Again....thank you for the smiles and good thoughts.
