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.
