2017 Club Report


Queen Emma Hawaiian Civic Club's mission is to honor our Queen's memory and to continue her service to the Kanaka Maoli community. Our club promotes and focuses on the issues which were foremost concern to Queen Emma such as education, health and informed governance regarding issues impacting our members who were the most skilled craftsman and artisans in Hawaii. Thus we continue the need to recognize and support the work of these living treasures in order to preserve our traditions and culture.


QEHCC participated in various Hawaiian Community Services with our 57 members. We attended Queen Emma's 181st, King Kamehameha IV's, Prince Albert's, Prince Kuhio's, King Kalakaua's and Queen Liliuokalani's Birthdays at Mauna Ala. We participated in all of the Aʻlii Sundays at Kawaiahaʻo Church and Cathedral of St. Andrewʻs Church. We attended Queen's Medical Center's tributes to Queen Emma and Kamehameha IV's Birthdays and Founder's Day celebrations. We joined in the Kuhio and the Aloha Day Parades and Onipaʻa food booth at Iolani Palace. We went to Pearl Harbor HCC's luncheon, Koolaupoko HCC's 80th Anniversary dinner, Queen Liliuokalani Churchs' Luau and William Tulua's Deacon celebration. QEHCC will attend AHCC 58th Convention in Seattle, WA. QEHCC's Christmas Party will be held at Makino Chaya's Restaurant in Aiea.


QEHCC held Na Mea classes with Chair Rawleen Fisher throughout the year making Kahili feathers, Diamond Cracker Spam leis, ti leaf leis/roses, graduation candy, money and yarn leis, plus floral arrangements.
