Chapter Reports - Hawaii

Our March 15 2006 Sunshine Week Forum was a success. The audience was small but interested, and the Forum was re-broadcast by Na Leo in East Hawaii and West Hawaii, which gave it a wider distribution.

On April 27, we gave a luncheon to honor Helene Hale, long time resident of the Big Island and Representative of State House District 4, who is retiring after a distinguished career in service to the citizens of the big Island and the State of Hawaii.

We are getting in gear for the Candidates' debates. On the Hilo side, this event will take place at the Palace Theater on Sept.. 14. It will be broadcast and televised. The Kona group will sponsor a similar event.

Marianna Scheffer, President
