A Variety of offerings from the Hawaiian Civic Club

If you are in need of fresh air, exercise, and a
feeling of accomplishment - or are just plain
hungry for ono Hawaiian stew - the Ko`olaupoko
Hawaiian Civic Club has just what you need this
coming Saturday, May 8th.

Two service projects are on tap on Saturday,
including cleaning of the lo`i kalo (taro fields) at
He`eia and clearing invasive alien limu
(seaweed) from the reef at Kualoa beach.

Both service projects run from 8 a.m. to noon,
according to the civic club.

Work at the lo`i is part of the Mahuahua Ai o
Hoi, kalo restoration project at He`eia, and
involves clearing vegetation, preparing and
planting the area with taro. The project, under
the coordination of the non-profit Kako`o `Oiwi,
is in partnership with the Ko`olaupoko Hawaiian
Civic Club

Volunteers are also needed to assist the
Hakipu`u Learning Center charter school and
Hawaiian Electric Company in cleaning invasive
 limu from the reef offshore of Kualoa beach.

Anyone interested in working at either location
is urged to contact the civic club at 235-8111 by
Friday for registration and further information

The civic club is also holding a Hawaiian stew
plate lunch fundraiser on Saturday, with pickups f
rom 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. from the Atrium Building,
46-005 Kawa St., in Kane`ohe.

Advance ticket orders are recommended, as the
plate lunch specials are usually sold out quickly.

To order your $8 plate lunch, contact Kona
Pelekai at ph. 218-2319 by Thursday, May 6.
