U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii
SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — The Hui O Na Wahine all-ranks Army spouses club held its annual Super Sign Up membership drive at the Nehelani, here, Aug. 17.
During the aloha-themed open house, 175 new members signed up.
New members can attend monthly luncheons and volunteer at the Hui Thrift Store, which supports activities, clubs, welfare and scholarships. A year’s dues for members of the Hui O Na Wahine spouses club are just $25 for August-May.
Besides featuring local vendors and opportunities to meet current members, the Super Sign Up included community information displays. Tabletop signage recognized that the organization has received Hui welfare funds for 2011. One such beneficiary is the Sgt. Yano Library, Schofield Barracks.
As in past years, the Hui helped fund weekly entertainment at the library’s Summer Reading Program, said Bonnie Dong, supervisory librarian, Sgt. Yano Library.
“This year, the Hui also provided $1,000 to purchase children DVDs for the library,” Dong said.
