2018 Club Report


2018 marks the 10th anniversary of our club so what better way to celebrate than with a luau. This year’s convention on Kauai is even more special as it is where we received our charter.


Hui Hawai`i O Tenesi Hawaiian Civic Club continues its mission to perpetuate the Hawaiian Culture and Aloha Spirit in and around Clarksville, TN. as well as throughout middle Tennessee.

One of our primary functions is to support the cultural needs of our military members and families of the Fort Campbell, many of which have been transferred from Hawai`i.


We continue to celebrate Lei Day, Asian-American Pacific Islander Month and Military Appreciation Month with a lei draping ceremony at the TN State Veterans Home in Clarksville, TN. We present maile and orchid lei to the Doughboy Statue in front of the facility and provide entertainment to the veteran residents and staff.


Our hui continues to share the culture at nursing homes, Clarksville Downtown Marketplace each Saturday during the summer, River fest and other community events as requested. Club fundraiser events include our ono kalua pig sales, Hawaiian crafts and Hawaiian plants grown in TN by one of our member. Monthly participation at Manna Café where we assist in feeding the homeless is such a rewarding effort. To close the year, we participate in the City of Clarksville’s Christmas Parade with our, now readily recognizable, smoking volcano!


Hui Hawai`i O Tenesi Hawaiian Civic Club is proud to further the vision of Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanian`ole.


We send to you our fondest Aloha Y’all
