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!
Part of our 90th Charter festivities included lunch at Oahu Country Club and dinner at Willows. There was good food, drinks and fellowship with our visitors from sister clubs Hiroshima and Osaka Minami. It was a great opportunity to spend more personal time with our guests prior to the gala event.
On October 26, 2001 the Lions Club of Honolulu, along with our sister clubs Hiroshima Lions Club, Osaka-Minami Lions Club, Kurashiki-Achi Lions, and Higashi-Osaka Nishi Lions, planted a small tree at Magic Island which is known as the “International Friendship Tree.” Over the years, Lions from our clubs continued to meet under the tree to share a meal and nurture the friendship between our clubs. On October 13, 2016, as part of our 90th Charter festivities, Lions from the Honolulu, Hiroshima and Osaka-Minami Clubs gathered around the tree for a picnic to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the International Friendship Tree. It was a beautiful sunny day to reflect on the friendship that has been forged over many years and the many Lions who shared a meal under this tree before us.
