Chairman’s Report Jan. 2020

I was out shopping recently when an old acquaintance accosted me to ask why the East Hawai’i Cultural Center (EHCC) was attacking its supporters. He politely listened as I explained the facts. Because this is a matter of concern to our community, we want our readers to hear those facts too.
 
EHCC is a cherished part of Hilo’s history.

Chairman’s Report

2016


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.

Chairman’s Report 2018

Over the two and a half years I’ve been Board Chair of the East Hawaii Cultural Center, people from the community have occasionally commended me for managing this huge, complex, and overwhelming pursuit. Yet I’m responsible for none of the unique beauty and magic emerging from EHCC during this time.

Here is a short list of the things I definitely do not do:

New Grants to EHCC

 Two donor-advised funds of the Hawai’i Community Foundation (HCF) have awarded grants to EHCC. We would like to thank HCF, the Anderson-Beck Fund, and the Serendipity II Fund in memory of Joseph and Luella Spadaro. Their contributions will help us make some needed repairs, in particular to our ADA-compliant bathroom, so that we can continue to serve everyone in our community. Mahalo!
