Update from Hawaii Kai Strong:
Hawaii Kai Strong is changing it’s schedule for the next couple of months.
We’re at a point where we have had 11 monthly meeting and have had 247 people attend the eleven sessions. Our next major goal is to “Map our Community,” but to do so we need more representation from and face time with our different neighborhoods and organizations around Hawaii Kai.
Our meetings on August 5 and September 2, held at 6:00 p.m. at the Koko Head District Park on the first Wednesday of each month will focus on people trained in or interested in the CERT program (Community Emergency Response Team) run by the Department of Emergency Management. These will be short (60 – 90 minutes) and if you have been CERT trained, please bring your CERT backpack.
During the August to December timeframe we are planning to do small group presentations to HOAs and Condo Associations as well as faith-based groups. If your group is interested in having us come do the presentation for you, please contact us at the email listed above, or by calling Matt Glei at (808) 222-1715.
Emergency Pet Shelter Training:
We are expecting a busy storm season and the Hawaiian Humane Society is in need of more volunteers to help staff pet-friendly shelters during a disaster. We will be hosting an Emergency Pet Shelter Training on Saturday, August 15 from 9:30 am to 12 pm. The training will be held in the Humane Society classroom at 2700 Waialae Avenue in Honolulu.
P.S. – Join us for the 4th annual Makapuu Sunset Benefit Hike on Saturday, July 25.Register today at HawaiianHumane.org.
