Chairman’s Report

The East Hawaii Cultural Center has been at the beating heart of our community culture on the Big Island for four decades. Run largely by volunteers, under the leadership of whoever had time and passion, the Center has offered a venue for a host of cultural groups, artists, theater and music ensembles, and workshops. When the current Board Chairman asked me to take over running the venue a month ago, I was excited and daunted.

September 2014 Celebrating Hawaiian Museums

September marks the eighth year Hawaii Island museums are collaborating to open their doors to other museums’ members. “Celebrating Museums Month” is designed to cross-promote these important local institutions. During the month of September, each Big Isle museum will provide free admission to the members of other participating institutions when a current museum membership card is shown. Some institutions also will be offering discounts on store items or tours to these members.
