Kona Vocational Clinics Start Soon!

The first Kona Vocational clinic will be taking place on Saturday, September 24. Kids ages 12-18 will learn basic construction skills and will be offered intern opportunities to learn various trades. This year's project will be building sheds. They will get hands on learning at every step from framing floors to roofing, siding, painting, etc.

Kona Vocational is seeking sponsorships for these projects. The sheds cost about $2,800 each. Also, a donation of $25 will sponsor a child for one clinic. Visit for more details.

Big Island RPH member and social media director Kaili Yuen is competing in the Miss Kona Coffee Scholarship Competition, a signature event in the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival and a preliminary to Miss Hawaiʻi. Kaili is one of six candidates in the competition (ages 18-26), who will be competing for the titles of Miss Kona Coffee 2023 and Miss Aloha Hawaiʻi 2023. The event will be on November 5, 2022 at the Aloha Theatre. The Miss Kona Coffee Organization’s mission is to prepare great women for the world and the world for great women, while offering scholarships to young women on Hawaiʻi Island.

If you would like to support Kaili in her journey to becoming Miss Kona Coffee, please contact her at or 808-756-8000 to purchase Kona Coffee Cultural Festival Buttons, Cookbooks, and/or promote your business by sponsoring Kaili with an advertisement in the program book.

The candidate that raises the most funds will also receive the 'Miss Popularity' award and scholarship at the competition. The sale of each button, cookbook and advertisement goes back to the Miss Kona Coffee Scholarship Competition and helps support the scholarships, awards and opportunities the organization provides.

Hello fellow Hui members:

My name is Vicki Hunter and I would like to tell you about Foundation Training and how it can help you stay on the court longer and feel better. This is a corrective practice that helps balance out the body and bring us into better alignment. It can be used for pain management as well as to improve performance. Developed by Dr. Eric Goodman, it was originally designed to treat back pain, but has since evolved to have much broader application. I am a certified Level II instructor and would love to share this with the Hui. If there is interest, I can offer a group class (for a small donation that would go to the club). I am also available for private instruction. This work is helpful no matter your age or athletic ability. It is designed to be practiced consistently, but even one session can change how you think about your posture. There is no obligation; so even if you are only on Island for a limited time, you can come to a class. I have not set a time yet as I would like to hear from interested folks and then see what time works for most.

Please feel free to look at the organization’s website:
