"What we say does not matter. It's what we do that counts." Thank you generous members for your canned goods and monetary donations for our first Hawaii Food Bank collection at the last meeting. Remember to bring your canned goods or donations to the next meeting as we will be continuously collecting goods throughout the year.

Our visit with Palolo Chinese Home was kindly welcomed by the seniors as the Kapiolani Community College keyboard ensemble with seven students performed a medley of songs led by Associate Professor Anne Craig Lum. Immediately after, we mingled and chatted with the ladies as they created egg shaped wish cards hung on branches of bamboo for their table decorations. We had a fun time with our ACUW cheery members Shari Lee Huntoon with crowd pleaser Alouwishes, Anna Chang, Pat Hubbard, Marilyn Wong, Aileen Mirchandani, Wendie Liu, Laura Lum, Blossom Mau, Dorothy Mau, and Donna Wong. Thank you one and all for participating.

Palolo Chinese Home Dynasty Golf Tournament held on April 19 at Ala Wai Golf Course. For first two weeks of April, Wendie and Donna helped with picking up prizes all over town and on April 19, helped with working at Par 3 15th hole, assisting Blossom Tyau. Later at the banquet we helped with prizes. We did that as Community Service for ACUW.

Ladies, do you have career type shoes lying around in your closets? Please bring them to our meeting as we will be collecting them to give to needy girls that are seeking employment for their job interviews. Did you know that Wahiawa's Duke's Clothing store collects shoes in good condition? Please kokua.
