2018 Club Report

 

We started our new year and leadership with the question "He 'aha ka manao o Aloha?" to engage our club members to malama our hui. We watch with concern as an ever so busy world tries to usurp our place of importance in the lives and time of everyone around us. Our 'ohana faces a changing world that we need one another to get through, yet we see the calendar say, "no time for this". In spite of it, we carry on, however small, to live and share aloha.

 

We continued with our "Na Waiwai 'o Hawai'i" series, with each ohana sharing their thoughts and stories about how these values have evolved in their lives and how they will commit themselves going forward. We are also seeking out our Utah Kupuna, especially those who may be here alone, so that we can malama them and learn from their wisdom and experience.

 

We have combined with Hui o Hawai'i O Utah for the Huliau Series starting with "Kaulana Mahina" and "E Pele E" and learned from Auntie Tina Cabiles-Carden. She also attended one of our meetings and taught us to chant

 

Our participation at Iosepa was a special year as we committed our dear Andrea Iona Sheehan to her resting place there in the cemetery, our choir singing a medley of songs she loved. As her marker said "Pure Aloha." Uncle David Kaleikini, the father of one of our members, was also buried there that day. Our group performed again this year sharing the stage with past haumana of Bill Kelly, one of this club's founders, joining us.

 

We humbly seek kokua from our Kupuna and alaka'i of this association as we go forward, learn, and strengthen our hui. Mahalo ‘oukou!
