Queen Emma Hawaiian Civic Club 2013

Welcome to the Queen Emma Hawaiian Civic Club. We are proud to perpetuate the legacy of our Queen. We have 60 members. We are very active doing club activities and participating in Hawaiian Community Services. We celebrated this year with Queen Emma’s 177th birthday anniversary on January 2, 2013 at the Royal Mausoleum of Hawaii at Mauna‘ Ala and Queen’s Medical Center. We honored King Kamehameha IV’s 179th birthday commemoration in February. In March, we participated in the Prince Kuhio parade and food booth at Kapiolani Park. In June, we celebrated our 49th annual Scholarship Luau and also was part of the Kamehameha I’s parade and festivities at Iolani Palace. In July, we celebrated 154th Founder’s Day Anniversary of Queen’s Medical Center. Our club members Rawleen Fisher, Kawika Molina and Rawlette Kraut made a ti leaf rope/maile lei video with ‘Olelo TV to commemorate Queen Liliuokalani’s 175th birthday festivities held on September 1-2, 2013 at Iolani Palace. We had a food booth too. We held classes with Evern Williams, ‘Olelo staff, in August and taught guests lessons on how to make ti leaf rope leis, which were used to surround the base of the Iolani Palace. Volunteers from throughout the state of Hawaii sent ti leaf rope leis that surrounded the Iolani Palace 4+ times. We will attend the Association of Hawaiian Civic Club’s 54th Annual Convention on Kauai from November 10-17, 2013. We will end the year with our 49th Annual Christmas Party at Hale Koa on December 7, 2013. We will volunteer to clean up Mauna‘ Ala Chapel and the Royal Mausoleum on December 28th, 2013 at 9 am. We have attended all of the Alii Sundays at Kawaiaha‘o Church.

Our club meets on the last Tuesday of every month from January to November at the Queen’s Medical Center’s Conference Building, 2nd floor from 5-7:15 p.m. We serve dinner, introduce a speaker on current affairs, conduct our meeting and enjoy fellowship.
