Mahalo for visiting The Rotary Club of Honolulu

Rotary around the globe has accomplished many wonderful achievements, and continues to do so this year, guided by our new theme "Be the Inspiration".
As we are ever closer to the eradication of polio, with only 16 cases remaining within the Pakistan/Afghanistan region, Rotary continues to provide hope for humanity throughout the world.
Chartered on July 1, 1915, the Rotary Club of Honolulu remains the oldest and largest Rotary Club in Hawai`i.  Our club includes 150 business, civic, and community leaders, both young and seasoned, all with a commitment to a better world through the common purpose of "Service Above Self".
Our club is known for its "Town Hall" lunchtime programs that include influential speaker and panels that give us pause to broaden our understanding of current issues and challenges, and ultimately encourage solution driven conversations.  We also are graced with the opportunity to visit an active submarine or aircraft carrier from time to time!
Our club meets three times per month in the Monarch Room of the famed "Pink Palace" - The Royal Hawaiian Hotel located in Waikiki.  We assemble to better our relationships, purpose ourselves with thoughtfully planned projects in our community, and to reach out and welcome new leaders to our network.  Each of our members eagerly gives of their own time and resources; their uniqueness and individual abilities collectively are able to move mountains.
Please come and join us for one of our meetings.  You will find the friendship and variety of vocations represented by our members to be encouraging, thoughtful, and hopefully inspiring enough for you to engage in our purpose!  To learn more about our club and our good work in making Hawai`i a better place, or to find out the particulars of our next meeting, please call Martha at 808-922-5526 or email us at administrator@honolulurotary.com.
 
Our best Aloha,
Robert "Bub" Wo, President 2018-19

CENTENNIAL PARK
“Over 100 Years in the making”
By Kirk N. Hovious
 
The Waikiki of today is worlds away from the wetlands, mudflats, fishponds and full cover bathing suits of 1916. A walk amongst the modern concrete towers of this tourist mecca reveals little in the way of culture or history and even less in “green space”. To a small degree, this will soon change!
Thanks to the efforts of the Rotary Club of Honolulu, Rotarians throughout the State of Hawaii and the City and County of Honolulu, the only remaining patch of undeveloped land in central Waikiki will soon be transformed from a barren, debris-strewn, gravel lot into an oasis of greenery, education, culture and family activity! This is the story and vision of “Centennial Park”…
