Busy November and December Leads the Chapter into the New Year
The holiday season is always a busy one for RPJ, and this year was no different for the chapter. November saw the chapter delivering sweets for the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Hawaii’s Dessert Fantasy, and the election of the chapter’s new board of directors led by 2013 president Nathan Martin. The traditional Meals on Wheels deliveries for Thanksgiving and Christmas along with the Special Olympics Winter Classic at Joint Base Hickam-Pearl Harbor also presented RPJ members and friends numerous service opportunities for the holidays. The chapter also donated canned goods and other food items to Palolo Gym’s Thanksgiving Food Drive and the Hawaii FoodBank. Mahalo nui loa to all of the members and friends who have risen to help the chapter and the community this holiday season!
