PEARL HARBOR AFTERNOON DELIGHT!!!  Friday, August 23rd, might be the last Pearl Harbor Cruise offered to us by Stanford Yuen, husband of member Lynette Yuen. Although Stanford recently retired, he has put together a boat tour from 3:45PM - 5:15PM of special sites regular folk are not privy to. If you did not sign up for this event at our last meeting, you can call or email us before August 10th and your name will be added to the VIP list. We plan to meet at 3:30PM by the book store in the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center.

An optional dinner (order off the great menu) at Henry Louie’s in Mapunapuna will directly follow the cruise. Join the fun!

This will be an educational and fun time!

JEWELRY REPAIR DAY found a group of ACUW members intently following the deft fingers of Jen Chun and Jamie Yoshida as they repaired bracelets, earrings and necklaces.  Jewelry pieces which had occupied the bottoms of jewelry boxes and tagged as unwearable were through the twist of a wire, a changed hook or some other magic that Jen and Jamie performed, turned into accessories to be worn to the next luncheon meeting.

The group (Susan Lee, Betty Jong, Blossom Wong, Candolyn Nakagawa and Anna Chang) met at The Bead Gallery, “Hawaii’s Warmest Bead Store,” a store Jamie Yoshida created for women to get together, chat and relax while beading.  What started as a foray into beading some 20 years ago has turned into a warm, bead-filled store that offers custom-design work, jewelry repair and numerous workshops.  Please check them out at

We discovered that our Co-Corresponding Secretary, Jen Chun, is not only the hands behind our state-of-the-art Bulletin but a masterful glasswork artist and now, jewelry-maker.  Trained by Jamie Yoshida and her hubby, Jason Del Mundo, for some 16 years, Jen is be offering two sessions of SLIDING KNOT BEAD BRACELET CLASSES on Saturday, August 31st at The Bead Gallery.  Both sessions are full at this time, but you can be put on a WAIT-LIST.  Please contact Anna Chang at 739-6888 or Shari Lee-Huntoon at
