Plexiglass Shields donated to Waipahu Club House
Last month, our West Honolulu Rotary Club donated 4 Plexiglass Shields to the nonprofit Waipahu Club House. Below are photos of the shields that will provide protection for many years to come. This nonprofit was a featured speaker at our weekly meeting last rotary year and was represented by Pala Wong (wife of Youth Services Chair Matt Wong). Included is a thank you card sent to our club. Thank you Rotarians for this sustainable project!

RI Convention 2021
From: Randy Hart <>
Sent: Friday, June 5, 2020 4:51 PM

Subject: RI Convention
All D5000 Rotarians,
Wanted to send out a gentle reminder to encourage everyone to sign up for the first ever virtual Rotary International Convention.  Can't beat the cost, it's FREE.  RI President Mark believes we will set the record for the number of attendees at an RI convention.  He's very excited about the convention, so come be a part of it.  Easiest way to sign up is just go to the D5000 website.
Speaking of conventions, as your DGND I get the dubious honor of chairing the D5000 sign up for the RI 2021 convention in Taipei.  Started doing a little research and put together an info sheet, attached, that I hope is helpful.  First up though is to register for the convention.  As most of you are aware the best time and most cost effective time to sign up is at the current year convention, 2020.  Of course there is no physical RI convention this year so wanted to send out a heads up so folks can start planning.  In summary, more detail attached and much more at the website:
-  Best rate 20-26 June during the Virtual RI Convention
-  RI will totally refund your registration fee if the convention is cancelled
-  Hotel information is not available at this time.  However I would like to get a feel for how many are interested in a group reservation?  Will send out more information as soon as Experient and RI open up for registration.
-  Host Hospitality Night seems to always sell out, so sign up early.
-  Lot's more info to follow as we move forward.
Looking forward to a great time in Taipei with a bunch of D5000 Rotarians.
