Kaiwiki News

Thank you for all that supported the T-Shirt Membership Campaign.  We sold 39 shirts and raised $63.18 in additional donations (Thank you Beverly Fuller, Gail Marshall, Joseph Withers, and Kitty Heacox for your generous donations), resulting in the Grand Total Raised amount of $529.08! That will go a long way.  I am told that orders will ship no later than 5/5/2016. For those who opted to have the shirts delivered to me, I will send out an email when they arrive and make pick up/drop off arrangements.

There is some momentum forming around how we can preserve and improve the Park & Pavilion.  Please email Torrey at  torrey_lynch@mac.com if you have an interest in this topic.

Also, The Hawaii County Planning Dept. has been having public meetings on the Hamakua CDP. If you have not attended and would like to provide input, the draft is available online. This is already towards the tail end of the process, but it’s still an opportunity to say something.  http://www.hawaiicountycdp.info/hamakua-cdp

ANNUAL MEETING MINUTES

Leave a comment

The meeting was called to order by President John Lawler at 1:00 P. M. on Saturday, March 20, 2016.

John Lawler presented his suggestion for Wainaku-Kaiwiki Community Association T-shirts. T-shirts can be purchased on line for $20, with the association getting $10. It will be necessary for 20 T-shirts to sell for the association to get $10 each. Anyone buying a shirt will be credited with paying the annual Association dues. From the start of the sales period, the group has about 25 days to buy the shirts. The group expressed support for the idea, and for a T-shirt with the design on the back. White Print on Lime Green or Purple cotton shirt. When the group present was asked how many shirts they would buy, about 20 shirts were spoken for. CLICK HERE to order.back

 

John displayed “25 MPH” signs, which residents can place on stakes, etc., on their property. The idea was popular, and most of the signs were handed out. There are a few signs left over so you may email John if you would like one. JRL@JohnRLawler.com85x11_postcard-2

 

A discussion of improvements to the Upper Kaiwiki Park pavilion took place. There are several sources of financial assistance in repairing the pavilion; John will keep the membership informed.

Susan O’Neill announced a coffee hour for Harry Kim, applicant for Mayor, to be held at 2390 Kaiwiki Road on April 8, from 7:00 to 8:30 P. M.

Cindy Inoue stressed the importance of having regular representation at the Rural South Hilo Community Association meetings. Gary Barr volunteered to attend the next meeting. The Board will designate one of their members to be a regular representative to the RSHCA.
