The Lions Club of Honolulu was happy to participate in the District 50 “Knights of the Blind” train excursion. It was a pleasant day for a picnic lunch and casual train ride along the Ewa coast. We were joined by fellow District 50 Lions, blind vendors, members of the visually impaired community and friends. There was lots of fellowship and tons of prizes!! Special thanks to the Knights of the Blind committee, Pearl City Lion Sharon Ige, LCH Lions Kyle Laconsay & Gavan Abe, District Governor Nadine Nishioka. Also, thank you to the CIS’s and many fellow Lions and friends that helped out at the event
We encourage fellow LCH members to consider other groups that would benefit from this train ride for future community events.
This weekend our club thoroughly cleaned, then painted the bus stop in front of WalMart on Keeaumoku St. Maintaining bus stops and painting over the graffiti is one of the service projects we do to make our community better. While working, we received many compliments from people as they walked by, appreciative of the improvements. One nice lady actually went into the store and bought us bottled water. Mahalo to a friend of the Lions, Karl Alexander for the helping hand!!
This past week we had the privilege to assist the Institute for Human Services (IHS) with their dinner service at the women’s and family shelter. It is a wonderful and worthy experience to help their clients. We were happy to see their clients enjoy hot food, even president Jack enjoyed a plate!!
Big mahalos to president Jack Schweigert, PDG Bernard Ho, Lion Dennis Ting, Lion Kyle Laconsay, Lion Jean Ota and CIS Carl, and daughters Jaycie & Jillian Ota. Also, mahalo to Lion Joshua Jensen for providing this opportunity to serve. Please contact Lion Mick Laconsay if you wish to serve next time!
