Aloha Rotarians and Friends,
Today's meeting included Wendell and Dexter. HIGHLIGHTS:
 
*  Wendell will be MEMBERSHIP Chair (and President) next Rotary Year and Kat will assist him.
*  We as Rotarians, should spread the word that we are a  LEADERSHIP organization, made up of  PROFESSIONAL, LOCAL BUSINESS AND CIVIC LEADERS, WHO MEET REGULARLY and through FRIENDSHIP  and SOCIALIZING, we do GOOD WORKS in our COMMUNITY  and in the WORLD.
* Think about who YOU can invite into our Rotary to increase MEMBERSHIP and share the SATISFACTION of the good we do.
*  Stay tuned for SOCIAL EVENTS coming up, to help  increase MEMBERSHIP.
* Once we get new members, we need to keep them interested with vibrant meetings and outstanding GUEST  SPEAKERS.
 
DEXTER on FOUNDATION:
* As a group, today, we decided that a reasonable first goal for our FOUNDATION would be $300,000 over 10 years. (WE now have $50,000 in the Corpus. This goal will be re-evaluated at the end of Wendell's year.
* A Committee will be set up, made up of Foundations Officers and RCMS members, who will work on a STRATEGY to accomplish this goal.
* WE will look at private donations, businesses and corporations in the COMMUNITY, BUSINESS TECH PARK, SHOPPING CENTERS and PRIVATE DONORS for donations for SCHOLARSHIPS & CORPUS.
* A Survey will be developed to see who and where these people and businesses are.
* Talking directly to people is the best approach, sharing the mission of Rotary.

Today's speaker was Chef Greg Christian, the founder and developer of the Organic School Project.  The 'Aina Pono, Hawaii's farm to school initiative is trying to connect communities and students to fresh, nutritious, local food. Phase I of this project started on November 2016 at the Kohala School Complex on Hawai'i Island, with a combined enrollment of about 780 students. Phase 2 has expanded to 3 school in the Mililani Complex (Mililani High, Mililani Waena, and Mililani Uka) with a combined enrollment of about 2500 students. Chef Greg has to work with the students to find out what they would like to eat, work with the cafeteria staff to see what they would like to prepare and to train the staff to work as a team and cook meals for scratch, check the cafeteria facilities, and work with the farmers and local vendors to obtain local, fresh ingredients. This project has 4 main goals: 1) increase purchase of local foods, 2) increase the number of students that eat school meals, 3) increase student consumption of healthy foods (less food waste), 4) cost neutral.

Guest Speaker Makina Chai spoke on SEXUAL HARASSMENT:
 
She is a lawyer and a teacher of Sexual Harassment and has a lot of experience in this field.
LEGAL DEFINITION - All 4 factors must be met for behavior to violate the law;
1. Related to sex, gender, or other protected classifications
2.Unwelcome -  must be perceived as such
3.So severe it interferes with work
The employer knew or should have known, and did nothing (IF a Supervisor harasses, this factor is automatically met)
 
POLICY:
Should set a higher standard than the law
Should allow complaints to any manager
Each workplace should have a policy
 
Question ??? Keiki Vision ? We should try to avoid touching the children.  "Aloha" can go to far.
 
Respectfully
Linda C.
