2017 Club Report


The Wai'anae Hawaiian Civic club attended the 57th annual convention in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Plaza hotel with 8 delegates and 1 alternate. This 58th annual convention we will have 9 delegates and 8 alternates the most we have had in a while.

Our lifetime member Paige Kapiolani Barber will also be the Housing and Employment Committee Chair and first time attending a convention. We started the year with attending the Ke One O Kakuhihewa Oahu Council board and general meeting in January first of 4 quarterly meetings. Our Waianae Moku hosted the 3rd qtr. meeting in Maili at the Kamehameha Community Center Building, we had lots of ono mea'ai and lunch time entertainment with our 4 different Ahupua'as giving a brief history of their Ahupua'a and members sang and danced, it was great fun.


Our club continues to uphold and honor our Association and Council by attending all alii sundays, cleanup of maunaala, honoring King Kamehameha by providing flowers for his statue, participating in our founder Prince Kuhio parade and Aloha Festivals coming up. Our members continue to stay engaged in community organizations, and updated of community activities and concerns.


Our club meets our main objective of fostering a friendly spirit among its members and continue to perpetuate our Hawaiian culture, be it music, olelo and assist in the education of our Hawaiian youth with our educational scholarships. Our club always supports our other civic clubs, by attending their fundraisers, be it for scholarship or raising general funds. Our member Chantrelle Waialae was Ms.Hawaii United States and nominated her for 2 awards this convention. Our year will end with the Mattson Ka'ipu Aina park clean up at our Kuliouou Heeiau at pokai bay and our year end Xmas party for members and new members. Mahalo nui to all.
