Ted regularly bikes to work from his home in Wai`anae, and is an example of how we should all try to use our cars less and be physically active. Ted is a big supporter of bike and multi-use paths on the Wai`anae Coast. He was featured in this video, which aired on KHON2 News in mid-2009.

"One Sight" Program Hosted by Wai`anae Lion’s Club, HI National Guard, Local Eye Dr.’s & Others

During the first week of September, children on the Wai`anae Coast were given the gift of sight by hard working volunteers from the HI National Guard, local eye doctors, and many other volunteers participating in the Lenscrafters/Sears “One Sight” program. One Sight organizes events aimed at providing free vision screening and glasses for children.

Here in Wai`anae, the Wai`anae Lions Club took the lead in organizing the program, and David Oclinaria of Wai`anae `Olelo was on hand to videotape the event. One Sight volunteers worked with children from several Wai`anae Coast schools.

In addition to helping the One Sight program, the HI National Guard also performed physicals for residents at some of Wai`anae’s homeless shelters, participated in Wai`anae Intermediate School’s “Million Word Kick-Off,” and volunteered in various other capacities along the Coast.

MAHALO NUI LOA TO ALL WHO VOLUNTEERED FOR THE BETTERMENT OF OUR COMMUNITY!
