The Hali‘a Aloha will be held on Wednesday, November 13, 2019, at the opening of our annual convention. To assure that all deceased members are remembered in both the convention book and during the Hali‘a Aloha ceremony, please send the following information by email to our Hali‘a Aloha Committee Chair Ben Baker – firstname.lastname@example.org.
• Member’s name
• Hawaiian Civic Club(s) of membership; and
• a picture of the member.
Deadline is SEPTEMBER 15, 2019.
We cannot ensure inclusion of information in the Convention Booklet if received after the due date. With everyone’s cooperation, we can honor and remember our deceased members in a most respectful and loving way.
During the Hali‘a Aloha ceremony at Convention, each club representative will be provided with either a flower or a lei to present in remembrance of their deceased member. The flower or lei will be presented and a bouquet or tree will be there during the ceremony and will be present throughout the Convention in a prominent place. The flowers will serve as a reminder of the contributions made by these members to the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs, their Councils and Clubs and as inspiration for the work thatwe do as a continuum of their work. Musicians will provide background music and there will be mass singing by those attending the Hali‘a Aloha. Your representative will be asked to line-up in order before the start of the ceremony. If your club has a deceased member please make sure that there is someone there for the service to represent your club.
Please call Ben if you have any questions, (253) 282-2230 (cell) or (360) 459-0872 (residence).
