2017 Club Report


AOKHCC continues to diligently adhere to its administrative duties such as holding board and general membership meetings each month, maintaining an annual budget, and executing programing projects through standing committees like scholarship, website, health education, and community outreach. AOKHCC also partners with local community organizations for joint events for health and education with Hawaiian cultural focus. We have continued our member workshops; lei hulu workshop where members made their own kemoe lei, Robert’s Rules, and ukulele playing. The Club hosted a lunch for Kapa`a Middle School Ukulele Band and Choir. We host Native Hawaiian Game booths at the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific, and the E Hula Mau competition. This year AOKHCC hosted the 3rd Quarter Council Meeting for Na Lei Makalapua. We also brought mele and hula to the elderly at St. Francis Home and Catered Manor, and to the students and families at the Braille Institute of Orange County. We participated in another successful fundraising weekend at the 39th annual HICCSC Ho`olaulea at Alondra Park in Lawndale. This year at our 35th annual Scholarship Aha`aina, we celebrated Hawaiian Queens and Princesses with all hula and mele relating to Ali`i Na Wahine O Hawai`i. This event continues to be the culmination of our year, and we are proud to say, that everything that goes on this evening; the food prep, serving, hula, music, decoration, is all done by AOKHCC members. In September, we look forward to participating with our South Pacific cousins at the Pacific Islander Festival in Huntington Beach, hosting our 1st `Ohana BINGO night in October, and our annual Christmas Program in December.


AOKHCC brought 25 members to convention in 2016 including six 1st time attendees who are all returning to Seattle for convention this year.
