2018 Club Report


Queen Emma Hawaiian Civic Clubʻs mission is to honor Queen Emmaʻs memory and continue to service the Kanaka Maoli Community. QEHCC focuses on issues which were foremost concerned to Queen Emma such as informed governance reguarding issues impacting our community, promotion of health care and supporting the education of our children. The Chartered members were the most skilled craftsman and artisans in Hawaiʻi, thus we continue the need to recognize and support the work of these living treasures in order to preserve our traditions and culture.


QEHCC participated in various Hawaiian Community Services with our 45 members. We honored Queen Emma's 182nd birthday on January 2, 2018 at Mauna ʻAla. We celebrated our 54th Annual Scholarship Luau in June and honored kupuna Joyce Davis and Ruby Maunakea. John Agard and Francis Chun received the Helen Kane Award. We participated in all of the Kawaiahaʻo Church and The Cathedral of St. Andrew's Alii Sundays. We cleaned up Mauna ʻAla in Nuʻuanu and attended King Kamehameha IV, King Kuhio and Queen Liliʻuokalani's birthdays. We attended Queen's Medical Center's King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emmaʻs birthdays, their 159th Heritage Day's Celebration and itʻs where we hold our meetings. We participated in the Prince Kuhio and Aloha Day Parades with Pato Pato Motorcycle Veterans and Dangerous Curves Female Motorcyclists. We attended the Merrie Monarch Festival in Hilo, enjoyed the Prince Lot Festival and ʻOnipaʻa at Iolani Palace. We shared Pearl Harborʻs HCC's 54th Luncheon, Waimanalo's HCC's Kanakapila, Alohahawaiionipaa Kanakapila in Waimanalo and Liliʻuokalaniʻs Luau in Haleiwa. QEHCC holds their annual Christmas Party in December.


QEHCC attended the AHCC 2017 Convention in Seatle, Washington, took side trips to British Columbia and a ferry to Victoria Island, Canada. We will attend the 2018 Convention on Kauai. We sponsored memorial resolutions for Marguerite Arcieo and Robert Ebanez.
