The Civic Club’s Kū I Ke Kamaʻāina Awards & Benefit is held yearly. This year it was hosted by Haleiwa Joes Kaneohe on Monday September 3, 2018. Surrounded by the beauty of the koolau and amongst many happy faces, the club honored our Distinguished Kamaʻāina of Kāneohe Bay, 2 Helen C. Kane awardees, and our 2018 scholarship recipients. A silent auction was also held at this event where 100% of the proceeds went the the club’s scholarship program. Thanks to our community friends and supporters, we raised over $2900!!!
Thanks to our club planning committee, here is some compiled information about the proposed constitutional convention. Everyone in the state of Hawaii will have the opportunity to vote on this come November 2018.
The Board of Water Supply came to meet with the Koolaupoko Hawaiian Civic Club Board. They shared information about the current draft Environmental Impact Statement being prepared for the Haiku Stairs and other information about the current status of the stairs. The Civic Club Board shared their concerns as well as their views for the future of the ahupuaʻa in our kuleana area. Below is some information prepared by the Board of Water Supply on the process of the EIS (draft predicted to be released mid 2018 for commentary) and some frequently asked questions. For purposes of mitigating access to the stairs at this current time of negotiations, the map included in this pamphlet was not posted.
