Phil Sammer, Regional Director Hawaii, 2018-2020
To be a worldwide fellowship of men and women of all faiths working together in mutual respect and affection, based on the teachings of Jesus Christ, and with a common loyalty to the Young Men’s Christian Association, striving through active service to develop, encourage and provide leadership to build a better world for all mankind.
The Hawaii Region Y Service Clubs (Y’s Men & Women’s Clubs), in partnership with the YMCA, shall provide leadership initiatives that contribute to stronger individuals, clubs, communities and a better world.
The first Metro District Meeting 2022/2023 was held via Zoom. The plan for future meetings will be held in person starting in October with Central club hosting. Each club shared their club’s highlights and activities. Some of the upcoming activities include a Plant Sale at Windward Y with the Windward club on August 27 and Chicken and Sushi Sale in September at Nu’uanu YMCA with the Nu’uanu Club. More information will come out soon on these events!
YMI World Edition 4 (2021/22) was just released on the Y’s Men International website and sent out to all Y’s Men/Y Service Club members. Atherton Y Service Club was featured for their Hahaione Stream Cleanup in March. Kalihi Y Service Club was featured for their participation in the YMCA of Honolulu Healthy Kids Day event in April. Both great projects to help the YMCA and the community. YMI World is the monthly publication of Y’s Men International. Current and past editions of YMI World can be viewed here: https://www.ysmen.org/publications/ymi-world/
Kalihi Y Service Club members volunteered to do craft projects, help paint a new banner, and serve dinner at HUGS Respite Night. Children and volunteers got to decorate bookmarks, pencil boxes, and hangers. HUGS is a non-profit that supports families with a child who has a life-threatening illness or disease. Respite night is an opportunity for parents to have a date night, relax, or do much needed errands for a few hours while the children spent time with their respite volunteer and other children.
Hilo Y’s Men and Women’s Club first “Talk Story” guest speaker was Bryson Hiro who started Hiro’s Cookies LLC. He’s a new member of the Hilo Club and shared 2 dozen of his local “onolious’ rainbow flavored cookies! After his presentation the club played Bingo and had good fellowship time making ‘service’ fun.
