Drowning Prevention

Tonight, Rotary Club Presidents from five of the 6 clubs on Kauai, along with our Assistant Governor met to hear a presentation on their "Rescue Tubes" project by Dr. Monty Downs and John Tyler. I'll share more details soon. Here we are talking about what we can do to help save lives at unguarded Kauai beaches. Mahalo to Dr. Jeff Goodman for bringing the pizza!

This is a very good website for beach information in Hawaii.

Rotary Planning Meeting

Tonight we had a very good planning meeting.

There was another group in our normal meeting room so we met al fresco in the Cottages Breezeway.

We went over a financial report from last year to finalize our budget for this year and started on our club calendar. We are going to be very busy for the next few months!
The GREAT news is that we will soon have a newsletter again! Thanks, Mark!

I am encouraging all members of West Kauai Rotary to REGISTER for the District Conference. $10 is so affordable and it will be a LOT of fun! Let's be a 100% registered club!

And I am also thinking that it would be wonderful if a few of our members could attend the INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION in Birmingham, England June 21- 24, 2009 and work in a visit to our sister club in Whitby too.

November is shaping up to be a busy month, even without the Kachi Kachi Dance! Stay tuned for more info!

Students in James Brabant’s fifth- and sixth-grade split class at Patton Elementary School were star struck Oct. 14 when Detroit Lions linebacker Jordon Dizon visited.
