On August 6th, our speaker is Hardy Spoehr on the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Beacons.  He was awarded the Mary Kawena Pukui Award by our club in 2019 and was the former director of Papa Ola Lokahi,  a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health status and wellbeing of native Hawaiians.
Hardy is the Town Crier for Honolulu and he will be undertaking the 'Cry' from the steps of the Lolani Palace, the home of the Kings and Queens of Hawaii. There is a long and unbroken tradition in the UK of celebrating Royal Jubilees, Weddings and Coronations with the lighting of beacons - on top of mountains, church and cathedral towers, castle battlements, on the town and village greens, country estates, parks and farms, along beaches and on cliff tops. In 1897, beacons were lit to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. In 1977, 2002 and 2012, beacons commemorated the Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilees of The Queen, and in 2016 Her Majesty’s 90th birthday.

On 2nd June 2022, a celebration of another unique milestone in England's history, Her Majesty The Queen’s 70th year as the Monarch and Head of the Commonwealth - her Platinum Jubilee. It is a feat no previous monarch has achieved. More than 1,500 beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories, and one in each of the capital cities of Commonwealth countries in recognition of The Queen’s long and selfless service. The beacons will enable local communities, individuals and organizations to pay tribute to her as part of the official Platinum Jubilee Weekend of celebrations from 2nd to 5th June 2022.

Health Systems Strained To The Limit As COVID-19 Surges In Nepal

The catastrophic second wave of COVID-19 cases that hit India first has spread to nearby nations especially Nepal, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives. Very low levels of vaccination in most South Asian countries (less than 10 percent in India, Sri Lanka, and Nepal) are adding to concern that the virus will spiral even further.
