Club marks 50th birthday
Since 1963, the volunteer members of the Kiwanis Club of East Hawaii have been “dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time” through service, cooperation and by encouraging isle keiki to grow into the next generation of leaders.
The Kiwanis Club of East Hawaii sponsors the prestigious Key Clubs of Hilo and Waiakea High, the Builders Clubs of Hilo & Waiakea Intermediate, K-Kids Clubs of EB De Silva and Waiakea Elementary, BUGS (Bring Up Grades) at Hilo Union, and the Circle K Club of the University of Hawaii at Hilo.
“Through these programs, the values of leadership, character building, caring and inclusiveness are instilled in our youth, all while forging lifelong friendships and having a great time serving the community,” said club President Shanon Hopkins.
The Kiwanis Club will celebrate its 50th anniversary this year, and in commemoration of this milestone, the Kiwanis Club invites all current and former members of the club, sponsored youth programs, family, friends and supporters to join in its 50th annual installation dinner at the UHH Campus Center at 5 p.m. on Sunday.
“The program will include a K-Family history honoring our past and celebrating the journey to come,” Hopkins said. Cost is $20 per person. Please RSVP to Lauren at 935-8719 or Audrey at 959-8358.
“Thank you to the unwavering support of our community, and here’s to another 50 years,” Hopkins said.
