Stuck on Aloha Traveling W.A.L.L – With Aloha, Love Lives makes a special, inspirational visit to the Rotary Club of Pearlridge

Feb 3, 2023 | PC Community

Mahalo to my fellow Rotary Club of Pearlridge (RCOP) buddies for a great time today at our club’s lunch meeting held at the Pearl Country Club. I got a chance to serve as a guest speaker which is always a neat opportunity to share my latest efforts in the community while interacting with club members.

The topic of my talk today was themed after the meaning of ALOHA. Hawaii Rotary District 5000 is focused in 2023 on extending the spirit and meaning of Aloha within District 5000 clubs and the communities they serve, as well as reaching out to Rotarians and those around the world in need through Rotary International.

On Friday I brought along my Stuck on Aloha “Traveling W.A.L.L. – With Aloha, Love Lives” and a pack of post its and pens and asked each member to write their thoughts to following question:  

What does Aloha mean to you and how do you share Aloha in your life with others as a Rotary Club of Pearlridge Rotarian?  

Each member had their completed post it messages attached to the W.A.L.L.. One by one, I asked each member to read their messages out loud followed by comments and discussion with the members. It was so positive, constructive, and inspired us all to reach out to our membership and the community to inspire others while spreading their “Message of Aloha.”

“Aloha is considering others, being kind to others, and handling others as friends.” Skip Suzuki

“Remembering that everyone is an ally.” Clarence De Lude

Mahalo to RCOP board members Rick Lau and Marshall Lum for the invitation to serve as a guest speaker on Friday. Mahalo to Rick who filled in the last couple of weeks for RCOP President Dick Mosko who is on the mainland attending the PETS – President Elect Training Seminar.

Mahalo to RCOP board members Rick Lau, Gordon Arakaki, Ralph Portmore, Pauline Mathias, Clarence De Lude, Skip Suzuki,  Itsuko Suzuki, and Marshall Lum for always supporting the RCOP with their attendance, leadership, and community support, and especially for their friendship.
