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!

Kaiwiki Renovations & Park Improvements

Kaiwiki Park Improvements

There is a renewed and energetic effort to realize improvements for Kaiwiki Park. The pavilion is in sore need of renovation and the park is lacking facilities for children and families. A group of neighbors has met with Councilwoman Valerie Poindexter and park representatives to discuss steps to move forward on this long overdue project. Valerie is very supportive of park improvements and with her guidance we have set up a meeting with the Mayor. To this end, we will be canvassing the community to collect signatures to present to the Mayor. We would very much appreciate your signature to demonstrate that there is a need at Kaiwiki Park that is widely supported by the community.

Annual Meeting this Saturday March 18th at Noon

One more thing…Last year’s dues combined with a T-Shirt purchase was a success. (Buy a WKCA t-shirt for $20 and approximately $10 goes towards membership).  We raised over $500, which is significantly more than we typically collect in annual dues PLUS it promotes the community AND you get a nifty t-shirt to wear all year.  We are going to be doing the same thing this year with some minor changes to the design/color and quality of t-shirt.  Currently I have gray/black logo as ONE option (see below) and will try and get another color t-shirt if I can.  Feel free to reply with suggestions.  I will use this as a poll and decide by Saturday.  If you are happy with Gray/Black then go ahead and order right away.  Screen Shot 2017-03-16 at 1.35.49 PM

Here is the Link

You will have the option to pay extra and have the shirts delivered to your house or save money and I will deliver them personally like I did last year.  Remember to Wear ’em if you got ‘em!
