Message from Foundation Treasurer William Butler

  Aloha All Attached are the results of the Foundation.  We put $92,000 into local community activities, including $25,000 to Youth Services, $20,000 to the Rotary Park in the Kilauea Park, and $10,000 shown under Professional Services for architectural services for the Kupuna pavilion in Princeville, and $6,000 for the" Hanalei Bucks” program.  Most of the expenses were for dedicated accounts.  (International Services, Vocational Services, Community Services, Environmental Services, Youth Services, Next Generations, Club Services, and Community Emergency Responses.) Bill Schilling was a powerhouse fund raiser for the Fit Lot and Kupuna Park.  He raised well in excess of $200,000.  I am sure we are all aware of the dramatic supply and inflation events we are currently experiencing.  Further construction scheduling is currently more expensive than normal.  It is our hope that the falling commodity prices being experienced this month on the mainland may result in some easing of pric

Just an empty boat!

  "A monk decides to meditate alone. Away from his monastery, he takes a boat and goes to the middle of the lake, closes his eyes and begins to meditate. After a few hours of unperturbed silence, he suddenly feels the blow of another boat hitting his. With his eyes still closed, he feels his anger rising and, when he opens his eyes, he is ready to shout at the boatman who dared to disturb his meditation. But when he opened his eyes, saw that it was an empty boat, not tied up, floating in the middle of the lake ... At that moment, the monk achieves self-realization and understands that anger is within him; it simply needs to hit an external object to provoke it. After that, whenever he meets someone who irritates or provokes his anger, he remembers; the other person is just an empty boat. Anger is inside me. " ~Thich Nhat Hanh

Innovative Gumption message from Rotary International President Jennifer Jones

Jones says she sees Rotary’s Action Plan as a catalyst for increasing Rotary’s impact. “As we reflect upon our new strategic priorities, we could have never envisioned that  our ability to adapt  would become our North Star during what is inarguably the most profound time in recent history,” Jones said in her vision statement. “Silver linings rise out of the most challenging circumstances. Using metric-driven goals, I will harness this historic landscape to innovate, educate, and communicate opportunities that reflect today’s reality.” Jones pledge: I pledge to  Grow Rotary  by hosting DEI Summits to create leadership opportunities that foster balance across our membership.
