Ala Moana Rotary Initiative Will Give School Supplies to 60 Students

Every child deserves the opportunity to succeed in school, regardless of their family's financial situation. Unfortunately, the cost of school supplies has been steadily rising, making it increasingly difficult for some families to provide their children with the necessary tools for learning. The average family now spends a staggering $700 per child on school supplies. For many families, this means choosing between essentials like food, rent, or school supplies.

That's where the Ala Moana Rotary Club comes in. We're proud to introduce the SmartStart program, an initiative designed to donate 60 backpacks filled with school supplies to Lunalilo School. Our mission is to help students who may not be able to afford new supplies for the start of the school year.

Rotary D5000 District Conference: Leadership, Community Service, and Compassionate Action

The Rotary D5000 District Conference this past weekend brought together Rotarians from across the state to celebrate achievements, foster fellowship, and inspire action. 

One of the highlights of the conference was the recognition of outstanding leadership skills and contributions made by Rotarians in their clubs and communities. Awards were presented to individuals, including our own Sue Ann Lee, who demonstrated exceptional dedication, innovation, and impact in their service projects and club activities. 

Let's give a big shoutout to our very own Khoi Bui for becoming a Paul Harris Fellow! We're so proud to see you receive your pin from your sponsor, Konrad Ikei. Your dedication to service is inspiring and we're grateful to have you in our Rotary Club family. Keep up the amazing work, Khoi! 

Watching the action is Foundation Chairperson Rich Courson.
