Introducing Our New Officers

BARBARA FARWELL has lived all over the world as an Air Force wife. In 1974 the six Farwells moved to Honolulu from Charles County, Md., where Barbara was League President. Wasting no time, she joined our local League and dived right in. She has since served on numerous local and state cttes, chaired several studies, coordinated Hawaii's part in the 1978 UN Survey, and served at 1st VP of LWVHon from 1977 to 79.

Incredibly, Barbara has also had time to complete her BA in political science this year, serve on the board of UNA-Hawaii, be active in PTA, Neighborhood Board, Campfire Girls, and Scouting, and join the Symphony Assoc and the Hawaii Opera Theater. It's a mystery where tiny Barbara gets all her energy. Honolulu and the League are lucky indeed to benefit from it:

JERRY HESS, PRESIDENT OF THE STATE LEAGUE from 1977-79, hardly needs an introduction.

Although still active in many areas, Jerry has agreed to serve as 1st VP because she loves the League and wants to help out. That's the kind of person Jerry is. She first joined League in Rochester, NY, 12 years ago and has been busy since. To mention but a few of her "hats": Jeri,/ has served as VP of the State League,

Voters Service Chair, Organization Chair, and has chaired and participated in numerous committees. Over the years she has been appointed to a number of government boards and commissions. At present Jerry is Vice-chair of Honolulu's Zoning Bd of Appeals.

BARBARA HODGES moved to Honolulu four years ago after spending three years in Brazil where her husband Chuck was with the UN Forestry Service. Prior to the Brazil tour, Barbara lived in North Carolina where she worked for the State Legislature. She was also an aide to Rep. James Ramsey for two sessions. Barbara joined League three years ago and was immediately recruited as co-editor of the Aloha Voter. Formerly very active in the Newcomers Club, she has had to cut back on her activities as she's increased the number of courses that she's taking at Chaminade. Other than her intellectual pursuits, Barbara's big love is traveling.

BOBBIE SLATER, a newcomer to League, is almost a Kamaaina in Hawaii. Although she was born in California, she has lived in Hawaii, on and off, for about 20 years, making this her permanent home 10 years ago. Bobbie and her husband Cliff have two young children, Jessica and Cole.

Bobbie taught elementary school for several years but, she said, "Exasperation with the DOE caused me to leave teaching." She then started her own business which turned out to be "one of the most educational and enjoyable experiences I've had." Before joining League, Bobbie served on the Program Ctte of Hawaii Bound.
