Annual General Board of Representatives Meeting

Aloha members!

We just had another successful General Board of Representatives meeting this past Wednesday, June 26, 2019.  If you didn’t attend, it was held in the newly renovated cafeteria. For those who haven’t seen the changes, below are a few photos of the cafeteria.

Also attached to this post is an update to all members of the programs and activities the association has been a part of and about the meetings we have had.

A new water fountain to refill your water bottle, or Hydro Flask ™.
Instead of struggling with a big cumbersome screen to show a video, televisions will be installed throughout the cafeteria to broadcast videos.
Giant ceiling fans were installed to keep everyone cool!
Checkout those awesome giant fans!
In and around the cafeteria are Knight displays built into the gates

General Membership Report

Aloha all!

Our annual General Membership Meeting was held on June 27, 2018 at the Castle Little Theatre.

It was a great meeting with several guest speakers, Windward Ho`olaule`a’s chair Bonnie Beatson, Carlos Severson from Castle’s Agriculture Program and farm, and Big Brother Big Sisters’ Margaret Cadiz. They shared information about their programs and how we as members can support it.

President Paul Luersen presented a report on the past year’s activities which is outlined in his report below. Click on the report to download a pdf version.

BIG Mahalo to Paul and Karen Ho`okano (class of ’72) who made a $100 donation to help Castle’s softball team with their batting cage.

Carlos Severson, Castle’s farm manager, is seeking volunteers to assist with a community work day on the farm. Did you know the school has seven acres of farm land? Here is an aerial view:

Carlos is passionate about the farm and has established a list of tasks that he wants completed, but needs volunteer help. The farm has been neglected for many years and rehabilitation will take some work. Here is his list.If you’re able to help in any way, please complete the volunteer form below and select Farm and we will put you in touch with Carlos.

The annual General Membership meeting is important for the association because it is when we elect our leaders. The attending membership unanimously elected the executive board members as listed below:
