New Trash Service

Hello All,

I just spoke with a Leinani, who has a small rubbish service she offers on Kaiwiki Rd every Wednesday.  She charges $20.00 per month for 5 bag max. She is new-old-school so she can only accept phone calls and text messages (no email). I just met her and was very impressed.  I am very excited about not having to go to the dump all the time!
Leinani’s phone number is 808-989-0254
She has a small pickup and this is not her full time job so I would suspect that it is a first come first serve basis.

Kaiwiki Chapel Update

Central Christian Church’s (CCC) new pastor has taken an interest in saving Kaiwiki Chapel from nature’s decay.  CCC was built for the Kaiwiki portuguese plantation families 107 years ago and is located 4 miles up Kaiwiki Road on the mauka side of the street.

Neighbors Cindy Inoue, Sharon Pavao and cousin Charlie Pavao (whose uncle built the chapel) were invited to meet with the pastor to discuss its future. Although a recent deal fell through to save it, the pastor wants to proceed with our community’s original plan to place a protective tarp over the top, repair the floorboard, etc. to eventually use it as a community gathering place.

VOLUNTEERS/DONATIONS:  Our community association would like to partner with CCC to make this happen.  Anyone have access to a “bucket loader” elevated cherry picker or a large strong tarp & rope to protect the top of the chapel?

If you would like to volunteer your time, services, labor, equipment, or donate funds to this worthy cause, please email or text neighbor Cindy Inoue at cindykondo@msn.com or text 808.366-0287.

Thank you for your time.

John Lawler,

Kaiwiki Potluck a Success!

It is safe to say that the Kaiwiki Summer Potluck was a success.  There were more people in attendance on Saturday than I recall ever seeing.  There was even a showing by Mayor Harry Kim!  We had food, water slides, food, horse shoes, science experiments, treasure hunts, swimming pools and lots and lots of delicious food.  The weather was unusually great and  a good time was had by all.  Thank you Roxy, Torrey, Gary, Gene, Cindy, John, Richard, Mihaela and Charlie (and everyone else who helped) for your work in helping to arrange, set-up, coordinate, involvement and clean up. Your many hands made light work.  Aloha and see you again next year!
