2018 Club Report

 

Founded by Prince Kalanianaʻole on December 6, 1918, The Hawaiian Civic Club of Honolulu continues to celebrate our 1918-2018 centennial with aloha and pride for all those who guided this ʻahahui over the past 100 years. In January, our officers and directors were ceremonially installed by Kahu David Kaupu at Helumoa Hale at Royal Hawaiian Center. Our first-ever Kūpuna Kūkākūkā oral history gathering in March brought five long-time civic club members together to share lifetimes of moʻolelo: Bobbie Mills Dias, Gladys Rodenhurst, Ann Nathaniel, Jalna Keala and Albert Silva. Mahalo nui to the Office and Hawaiian Affairs and Kamehameha Schools for their generous support.

 

The Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniana‘ole Commemoration at Maunaʻala on March 26 brought together Royal Societies, civic club members, community leaders and ‘ohana for a service led by Kahu Kaupu. A poignant presentation of mele and ʻōlelo by haumāna from Kūhiō Elementary School in Mōʻiliʻili was enjoyed by the more than 100 in attendance.

 

Holokū Ball – our HCCH Scholarhip Fund Benefit Gala – was held in Iwilei at the Pōmaikaʻi Ballroom. ʻOno cuisine, beautiful decorations, a holokū parade and nahenahe music by Keauhou and Aaron Salā were among the highlights. Mahalo nui to our coroporate sponsors, donors, volunteersw and all who attended. This year, HCCH was able to provide more than $25,000 in post-secondary scholarships to haumāna Hawaiʻi. Also in March, the moʻolelo of our cenetennial was artfully shared in song and dance at the Kamehameha Schools Kapālama Song Contest. In June, HCCH participated in the King Kamehameha Celebration Parade as Grand Marshall.

 

Additional activities throughout the year include general fund and convention fundraisers, membership meetings, board meetings and Aliʻi Sundays at Kawaiahaʻo Church, AHCC Convention, Maunaʻala chapel maintenance and more. Ua mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono!
