Mahalo to Rick for organizing and for all those that came out to Macy's on Saturday to "ring the bell" for the Salvation Army.
Our speaker this week is Karl Escbach discussing the proposed census citizenship questions.  Karl is a sociologist and demographer. He received a Ph.D. in sociology from Harvard University, and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in demography at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Before moving to the Big Island in 2016, he was a professor at the Sealy Center on Aging at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas.  He taught population epidemiology, research methods, and health promotion. He remains a research collaborator and adjunct professor at the Medical Branch as a telecommuter.  From 2007 to 2010, Karl served as the State Demographer of Texas. He was the liaison of the State of Texas to the US Bureau of the Census, and the Director of the Texas State Data Center. In this position, he produced the official population estimates and projections for Texas cities and counties, and advised the Texas legislature about the impact of population growth on demand for state services.
 
We had a blast last Thursday at Talk Story Thursday! So much fun and fellowship over a few drinks and pupu’s.  We played “Never have I ever.”  Rotarians were asked many questions and answered with their very own custom paddled whether they “Have” or “Have Not.” Oh boy, did we learn a lot about each other!
The night ended with each Rotarian telling a little story about themselves or background. Val made sure each of us spoke and it was so neat to see the varied . backgrounds we all have.  All in all, another great night. Join us for the next Talk Story Thursday in January.
On November 17th, Lani, Lisa, Zeda, Rick, Maurice and Charlene participated in the Rice Rally at KTA.  130 bags (1950 lbs) of rice were delivered to the Food Basket.
I am writing to let you know that we have successfully and joyfully distributed dictionaries to 5 schools. I want to thank all that volunteered to help on this project.
Randy for making sure we got the dictionaries on time and organizing us to help put the Rotary labels inside.  Jeanna for helping me with the ClubRunner email system to keep everyone in the loop.   Benson, Zeda, Pat, Jeanna and Charlene for helping with 3 classes at DeSilva school.  Nate, Paul, and Valerie for taking care of the students at St. Joseph's school.  Doug, Paul, and Tom for assisting with 2 classes at Kapiolani school.   And Lani and Paul for helping me at Keaukaha school.   An extra thank you to Lani for being ready and willing to help me at Kalanianaole school even though I gave her the wrong info! 
 
We provided dictionaries to 241 students. They were all very excited to have their own dictionary and the teachers were very appreciative. 
 
For those of you who were unable to participate: if you haven't done this before keep it in mind for the future. It really is one of the funnest projects. The kids are so enthusiastic and the teachers are genuinely thankful. It is a real upper to your day!
 
Mahalo nui loa to all,
Irene
