We’ve finally come to the point where something can be done at Keaau Beach Park.  After years of homeless families living there the city has just complete evictions and some park repairs.  We are asking all AOHCC members who are able to join us at this effort to bring back the beauty that was keaau’s.
Keaau Beach Park Clean Up, Saturday May 21, 2011 – 9am – noon. 
One of our main objectives has been adopting the different parks in our ahupuaa and planning clean ups for each site.  However this park has been know for it’s years of homelessness that was an eye sore to the community.  I hope our Association will find this effort worthy of island wide support in addition, we’re inviting the rotary club of waianae.
We would like to have a pot luck pa’ina at the end of the day’s efforts and John Desoto will share a huakai via his mini bus to different area’s within Keawaula, Ohikilolo, Makua, and Keaau.  Please join us!!
