         In the beginning…

 The first Rotary club was organized in
  Chicago in 1905, by Paul P. Harris.
 The  club, with four members, met in
  rotation at the offices of the members -
  thus the name Rotary.
 There are approximately 1.2 million
  members in over 33,000 clubs worldwide.
        Service Above Self
 Rotary  was not long to recognize that
  fellowship alone would not keep a group
  together — there needed to be a purpose.
 The first service project was public
  restrooms in downtown Chicago, IL, USA.
 Rotary became the world’s first
  service club.
         Object of Rotary
 The Object of Rotary is to encourage and
 foster the ideal of service as a basis of
 worthy enterprise and, in particular, to
 encourage and foster:
           Object of Rotary

       The development of acquaintance as
 First.
  an opportunity for service;
            Object of Rotary
 Second. High ethical standards in
 business and professions; the recognition
 of the worthiness of all useful occupations;
 and the dignifying by each Rotarian of his
 or her occupation as an opportunity to
 serve society;
           Object of Rotary
 Third.The application of the ideal of
  service by every Rotarian to his or her
  personal, business and community life;
            Object of Rotary
 Fourth.The advancement of international
 understanding, good will, and peace
 through a world of fellowship of business
 and professional people united in the ideal

We implement the Object of
 Rotary through the Five
   Avenues of Service

  • Those things that a Rotarian does to help make
    successful the running of the local club.
• Vocational Service
  • The promoting of the “ideal of service”
    throughout the business and professional world.

  • Urges every Rotarian to participate in all
    activities that make the community a better place
    in which to live.
• International Service
    • Encourages and fosters the advancement of
      understanding and good will among people of the
•   New Generations Service
    • recognizes the positive change implemented by youth
      and young adults involved in leadership development
      activities, community and international service projects,
      and exchange programs that enrich and foster world
      peace and cultural understanding.

About our club
    History of the Rotary Club of
             Hawaii Kai
 Chartered    September 17, 1973

 Approximately    20 Current Members

 District   Recognition and Involvement
    A History of the Rotary Club of Hawaii Kai
         Taken from the Club’s Records

   The Rotary Club of Hawaii Kai was chartered on September 17, 1973 with
    24 charter members. It was sponsored by the Rotary Club of East
    Honolulu and when chartered became the 22nd Rotary Club in what was
    then District 500. The driving force behind the creation of the Hawaii Kai
    Club was Samuel B. Bird, a member and Past President of the East
    Honolulu Club. Sam wrote the following, “Formation and Beginning of the
    Hawaii Kai Club”, on September 1, 1982:

   “Shortly after I moved to Hawaii in 1970 – I was talking to Morely Theaker –
    who was District Governor at the time – about the possibility of starting a
    club in the Hawaii Kai area. Well – you know what happens when you
    open your mouth. Morely said – “go ahead” – “make the survey”. I did –
    and the survey indicated that it would be feasible. So – I got the job.
        A History of the Rotary Club of Hawaii Kai
             Taken from the Club’s Records

   The East Honolulu Club released part of its territory from Niu Valley to
    Makapuu Point – which is now Hawaii Kai’s territory. With the help of a
    committee of the East Honolulu Club we got started. The committee
    consisted of Harold Ohata, Chuck Crispin, Handy Hancock, Pete Aurand
    and myself.

   Because I knew John Rash – who lived in Hawaii Kai – I asked him to help
    by approaching people he knew in business. Handy looked for a place to
    hold our meetings. Thanks to Howard Miyake, a charter member, we were
    able to procure the Executive Dining Room in JAIMS Building for our
    meeting place – which has proven to be a wise decision.
        A History of the Rotary Club of Hawaii Kai
                Taken from the Club’s Records

   We then set up a “Provisional Club” – and Handy and Pete resigned from
    East Honolulu to start it off. Jack Clark also resigned to act as Secretary.
    We finally located the necessary 24 men to make the application to Rotary
    International for membership – and our Charter was granted on September
    1, 1973. The Charter Night Banquet was held in the ballroom of the Ilikai
    Hotel on November 2, 1973. (The principal speaker was Carl P. Miller, Past
    President of Rotary International 1963-64.)

   From the very beginning – this club was off and running – with its Health
    Fair – the Lunalilo Thanksgiving Dinner – the Boy Scout Troop – in
    addition to the many other Community Service Projects it has promoted.

   I am very proud and honored to be associated with the Hawaii Kai Club
    and wish it continued success in all its endeavors.”
        A History of the Rotary Club of Hawaii Kai
                Taken from the Club’s Records

   The first President of the Club was retired Admiral E. Peter Aurand. Other
    officers included Lambreth “Handy” Hancock, Vice President, Charles S.
    Clark, Secretary and Wendell W. Wong, Treasurer. The Club held its
    meeting at noon each Tuesday at the Japan America Institute of
    Management Science (JAIMS) on Hawaii Kai Drive.

   The Club’s first Community Service Project was providing two-year
    subscriptions to various magazines and periodicals for the new Hawaii Kai
    Library periodical room. From the December 18, 1973 Hawaii Kai Sun
    Press, “Rotary Club members voted last week to provide one subscription
    for each member in the club as a gift to the library and the selection of
    magazines will be made in cooperation with the new head librarian. The
    official presentation was made Dec. 1, by Peter Aurand, club president, at
    the opening of the library.

   Networking
    An original goal of Rotary was to allow club
    members to meet periodically and enlarge their
    circle of business and professional
    acquaintances. As members of the oldest service
    club in the world, Rotarians represent a cross-
    section of their community’s business owners,
    executives, managers, political leaders, and
    professionals – people who make decisions and
    influence policy.
    Benefits of Membership
 Service
 Club members have many opportunities
 for humanitarian service, both locally and
 internationally. Service programs address
 concerns such as health care, hunger,
 poverty, illiteracy, and the environment.
 Rotarians regularly experience the
 fulfillment that comes from giving back to
 the community.
       Benefits of Membership
   Friendship
    Rotary was founded on fellowship, a
    cornerstone that continues to attract
    members today. Rotarians enjoy camaraderie
    with like-minded professionals, and club
    projects provide opportunities to develop
    enduring friendships. Club members who
    travel have friendly contacts in almost every
    city of the world.
    Benefits of Membership
 Family
 Rotary sponsors some of the world’s
 largest exchange and educational
 programs. Rotary clubs provide innovative
 training opportunities and mentoring for
 young leaders, and they involve family
 members in a wide range of social and
 service activities.
