2017 Club Report


Our Vision: Families are involved, resilient, healthy and productive. Our children can be children, We protect, respect and learn from our kupuna, We Live aloha, malama aina, and value all people. We are a model for the world. We are adaptable, flexible, relevant and responsive to contemporary issues.


Our Mission: To Malama our members, their families and the communities in which we live by perpetuating and advocating for the traditions of our ancestors to honor our past, present and future with aloha and respect.


Our members celebrate the memory of beloved member Jerry Mahilani Kaluhiwa,who joined the realm of Aumakua with his passing on Dec. 29, 2016. He is survived by his wife, Leialoha,"Rocky" Kaluhiwa and a large extended ohana.


At our 80th Anniversary Dinner we honored two groups the Kaneohe Bay area as Distinguished Kama`aina. Noted ukulele families of Sam and Fred Kamaka, and Hawaiian Memorial Park Cemetery. The Kamaka ohana, have ties to the Halekou area of Kane`ohe, were honored for preserving Hawaiian music through the beautiful instruments they have created. Hawaiian Memorial Park Cemetery were also honored and recognized by our club. Our Helen C. Kane Awards were Aridis Eschenberg and Keau George for their dedication and outstanding support of the civic club over the past year. We produced and distributed our latest publication, "Distinguished Kama`aina of Kaneohe Bay" featuring stories of 24 individuals, families and organizations honored by the club over the past five years.


KPHCC continues to provide cultural tours and consultation to the community throughout the past year. The club adopted legislative priorities at this year's legislative session. We secured matching funding for a major new initiative, the He`eia National Estuary Resource Reserve System (NERRS). We strongly supported the Ko`olaupoko Sustainable Communities Plan. We were also active in the planning of the NERRS project.
