by Isaiah “Ike” Ka'aihue
King Kamehameha Hawaiian Civic Club has been quite busy since last convention. We thank Uncle Ike, Roth Puahala, Jesus Puerto, Michael Iamele, Kehaulani Terry and Patrick Kaleo'okalani Pihana Branco for representing our club at the 53rd Annual Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs Convention at the nation’s capital in Washington, DC. Immediately following last year’s convention we quickly got involved with the Imperial Court of Hawai'i’s Coronation and presented three cultural awards to their event. We helped with the Church of the Crossroads in serving Thanksgiving lunches, attended and participated in club, council and Association meetings; Ali'i Sundays; OHA Kaka'ako Makai Land Settlement; Ho`olako Grant; Prince Kuhio Festival Parade; club installation of officers luncheon; attended and participated in Leadership training by Jim Bagnola; Hawai'i Ocean Resource Management Planning meeting; O'ahu Ahupua'a Boundary Marker Project; written testimonies to the State Legislature; participate in the 'Ike Ku'oko'a transcription of Hawaiian Newspaper; making of Ku'e signs at Jarrett School for DC; Koho Pono District 2 Congressional Debate; 'Elele Pono-Indigenous Peoples and International Law at UH Richardson School of Law; draping of the King Kamehameha Statue; King Kamehameha Floral Parade; Prince Kuhio Hawaiian Civic Club’s Parliamentary and Resolution workshop; lei draping of Duke Kahanamoku Centennial Celebration; cleaning of Mauna 'Ala; 'Onipa'a gatekeeper and parking attendants; O'ahu Council Swap Meet fundraiser; Washington Place for the welcoming of President Grover Cleveland’s grandson, George; and many more activities, events and projects. Besides all that has been previously mentioned our most memorable event last year was our 5th Annual Christmas Luncheon for Youths on Christmas Day. The proprietor of Soul de Cuba Café provided the wonderful staff, the facility and the 'ono-licious meals. There were smiles and laughter amongst the youths. At this event we honored Ali'i Pauahi Hawaiian Civic Club and Jesus William Puerto for their kindness and strong support to our club’s purpose and mission. The club provided gifts and entertainment for the youths of the Wai'anae Coast this year.
As President, I am indebted to my club officers and directors for their strong support and great leadership in helping to keep the King Kamehameha Hawaiian Civic Club active and involved as best as possible. Aloha Kekahi I Kekahi.
