Saturday Dec 5, 8:30 am – Honolulu LWV planning meeting at Hale Koa hotel

December 15th. National Bill of Rights Day. With so many holidays occurring in December, rather than holding a program to recognize Bill of Rights Day a simpler method could be used. Last year many creative Leagues used less time consuming and labor intensive ways to recognize the Bill of Rights in mid-December.

January 18, 2010. Martin Luther King, Jr. parade. Save the date for remembrance and fun. Ann Shaver is leading the planning committee. Contact the League office (531-7448) to sign-up.
