On Friday, May 22, from 11-12, families of the students will be holding a short caravan drive through Kīlauea for our graduates. As you know, in these times, our children cannot have a regular ceremony, so this is a SOCIALLY DISTANT way to celebrate them and greet the community, while staying SAFE and in accordance with all county regulations. People all over the country are doing car parades like this to celebrate and honor graduates (Hanalei school next week!). The drive begins at KILAUEA GYM PARKING LOT, 11:00 AM and will follow the route attached on the map. We will circle town at least two or three towns (depending on turn out) so should be driving between just after 11-12 ish.
Please spread the word and tell friends and ʻOhana to support from their yards or safe places along the parade route like the dispensary park. WEARING MASKS and 6 FEET APART. Mahalo also to Anaina Hou for allowing the kids to display the banners they have created themselves on the mini golf fence for a week! We are so proud of our keiki and excited to give them a bit of extra love this year.
This is not an official school event. It is organized by families and the community! Hope you can join us! E mālama pono ʻoukou, and mahalo for all you do for our town and community!
Mahalo nui loa to Dr. Marie Terry-Bivens for participating in our KNA meeting this month! She has kindly offered her services to those in need. Reach out for assistance with mental health services or share with community members who may be in need during these challenging times. Drmarieterry@gmail.com 808-332-7190

Aloha Friends! The April 7, 2020 meeting of the Kilauea Neighborhood Association has been canceled. We hope to resume public meetings ASAP and will share any important news and announcements here and on our Facebook page. Stay home and stay safe… Aloha nui!
From our friends at the Kīlauea Point National Wildlife Refuge:
As of today, the Kāhili section of the Kīlauea Point National Wildlife Refuge is inaccessible. The adjacent land owner has closed the makai portion of Kāhili Quarry Road (accessed via Kīlauea Road) to vehicles, bikers, and pedestrians due to safety concerns from recent flood damage. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to work with the community to address this issue. Stay tuned for updates as they become available!
The next Democratic Party of Kauai biennial precinct meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 4 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Kilauea Neighborhood Center. The purpose of the precinct meeting is to elect the officers of the precinct (President, Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer, and Council Representative) and the elect the 2 male and 2 female delegates and the 2 male and 2 female alternates for the Kauai County (Saturday, March 28) and State (May 22-24) conventions.
At the Kauai County convention precinct officers and delegates, as well as other members to the convention described in by-laws, will be electing the Democratic Party of Kauai’s County Committee (the Kauai party’s Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, representatives to the Democratic Party of Hawaii’s State Central Committee and a couple more positions) as well as by-law & rule amendments and adopting resolutions.
Some may question whether precincts are obsolete as we move forward with mail ballots and the prevalence social media. However, in existing State law and a process outlined in the Democratic Party of Hawaii’s constitution, precincts and district councils play a critical role in the selection of names to the Governor when there is a mid-term vacancy for a State Representative or State Senator. That is why it is very important to have the positions filled should this ever happen. And, it has happened before in District 14 when Mina Morita resigned to become Chair of the Public Utilities Commission in 2011.
