CNH Governor Pete conducted his Official Visits to Division 22 March 22-March 30. He started on the island of Maui and met with Kahului, Maui, and the Valley Isle Kiwanis Clubs. Then on to Kauai to meet with K-Family there, before flying to Oahu.

On Saturday, Governor and First Lady Jeannette were on board the USS Missouri for the Pearl Harbor Kiwanis’ monthly workday. Gov Pete was on the sanding crew while First Lady Jeannette was on the varnishing crew.  Immediately following the service project, the Oahu K-Family held a luncheon for the Governor’s official visit with Alaka’i, Honolulu, Kaneohe and Pearl Harbor Kiwanis Clubs and the LTG-Elects for Komohana and Hikina Key Club. Aladdin was our emcee, Pauline gave the Pledge, Eugene led us in God Bless America, and Susie delivered an invocation.

First Lady Jeannette shared her Breakfast Programs in Title 1 Schools. She stressed the importance of children to have breakfast so that they are present and ready to learn.

Gov Pete reiterated the goals of the District and importance of building good leadership within the clubs for sustainability of the service that we provide.

Trustee John presented Gov Pete with his authored book “I Got a Cat.” He may write a future book entitled “I Got Kiwanis.”

Foundation Ambassador Neil presented the Gov with a teak plaque surrounding a USS Missouri coin and a dog tag engraved with the Gov’s term of office.

Gov Pete presented Key Club LTG-Elect Keith (Komohana) and Erica (Hikina) with his District pin.

We enjoyed the dessert which proudly displayed the Governor’s logo—a Cornish pixie sitting on a toadstool which symbolizes good luck. It was delicious and we all had a big slice of Good Luck.

The Governor and First Lady traveled on to Hawaii Island after their Oahu visit. There, they will meet with the Kailua-Kona and East Hawaii Clubs. The Governor and Mark McDonald will also meet with the Sheraton to begin planning for the 2018 DCON.

The Gov and Jeannette will return to San Jose on March 30. We know that they had a grand time in Hawaii surrounded by the Aloha Spirit. We wish them a safe trip home.
