Message from the President Aloha mai kakou ka Ohana o Pearl Harbor The Pearl Harbor Hawaiian Civic Club has been very busy since the beginning of the year. On January, 2nd, Charles Kapua and Toni Lee represented PHHCC at Queen Emma’s Birthday Celebration at Mauna`ala and Queen Emma Summer Palace. The Oahu District Council had their retreat and first meeting, January 8th and 9th and the Council Meeting was held January 22nd at St Francis High School. The first PHHCC Board Meeting was held on Tuesday, January 25th. The Association held their retreat and first Meeting, January, 28th and 29th at Camp Mokuleia. Lunalilo Home Fundraiser was Saturday, January 29th where the PHHCC members volunteered to set up for the luau and clean up. King Lunalilo Ali`i Sunday was held January 30th and the PHHCC Installation was held on Sunday, January 30th. Talk about an action packed month…..All of these events happened and we did them ALL!

Mahalo to all of you who have given tirelessly to our Club, the Oahu District Council, the Association and our Community. O wau me ka ha`aha`a,


WANT TO HELP AARON MAHI? DO YOU CARE ABOUT THE ROYAL HAWAIIAN BAND? Aaron Mahi is no longer the Royal Hawaiian Band Master. Mayor Mufi Hanneman has replaced him with the Pearl City Band Leader, Mr. Nakasone. Your club has voted to support Aaron Mahi and to ask for his re enstatement until the process has been redone. We think the process has been flawed. We will be asking the Council to not confirm Mr. Nakasone on Wednesday, February 23rd until the process has been examined. We want a blue ribbon panel put together of people that have some artistic, language, history and cultural background to make the selection unlike the panel that selected the coroner, the waste water manager and the engineer for the city and the Royal Hawaiian Band Master. The Mayor is saying that Aaron Mahi did not make the top three selected in his process for consideration for the job. How can you lead a Band for 24 years and not qualify at least in the top three? Did you also know that now there are NO Hawaiians in the Royal Hawaiian Band. If you want to help, please call your Councilman or Councilwoman and ask them not to confirm until the process is re-done. Their numbers are: District 1 – Todd Apo – Ewa, Kapolei, Waianae and Makua – 547-7000 District 2 - Donovan Dela Cruz – Mililani Mauka, Wahiawa, North Shore and He`eia – 547-002 District 3 – Barbara Marshall – Kaneohe, Kailua and Waimanalo – 547-7003 District 4 - Charles Djou – Hawai`I Kai, Kahala, Diamohnd Head and Waikiki – 547-7004 District 5 – Ann Kobayashi – Palolo, Manoa, McCully and Makiki – 547-7005 District 6 – Rod Tam – Makiki, Downtown, Nu`uanu, Kalihi Valley – 547-7006 District 7 – Romy Cachola – Kalihi, Salt Lake, Mapunapuna, Foster Village, 547-7007 District 8 – Gary Okino – Moanalua, Aiea, Pearl City, Waipio – 547-7008 District 9 – Nestor Garcia – Mililani, Waikele, Waipahu, Makakilo – 547-7009 You can make a difference. Please call not only your council person call them all! You can also send in Testimony if you want to for the hearing. The hearing is going to be held on Wednesday the 23rd at 2:00 p.m. You can fax in your testimony if you want to.

At this meeting were all Committee Chairpersons and the Executive Board as well as the various Council Presidents and their Directors. This meeting was very well attended and proved to be very constructive as new chairpersons got a chance to understand their role. Most chairpersons were very happy that they had a chance to ask what was expected of them and what they could contribute. Everyone left this retreat with a better feeling about their role and how their contribution can help to make our Association stronger and more viable. Mahalo, to Tomi Chong, Harriet Roxburgh and Patricia Brandt who spearheaded the plans that made this a very successful retreat.
