Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniana’ole Piʻikoi was the Founder of the Hawaiian Civic Club movement and proponent of the Hawaiian Homestead Act of 1920. In the early 1970s, parades honoring Prince Kūhiō were held in our island communities. Hawaiian Civic Clubs of O‘ahu would gather in the communities of Papakōlea, Nānākuli, Kailua and Hawaii Kai to host this annual event, with a pageantry of floats, marching units, and car cades of dignitaries…all in celebration of the life and times of Prince Kūhiō. Today, the activities to honor Kūhiō have grown from the humble parades in those early years to month long activities.
9:00 AM – 12:00 noon with lunch to follow
Investiture of new officers will also occur at the beginning of this gathering.

In an effort to encourage new mele (songs) that celebrate the wonderful Windward side of O`ahu, the Ko`olaupoko Hawaiian Civic Club has partnered with the Hawaiian Electric Company, Hawaiian Electric Industries Charitable Foundation and Windward Mall to present Na Mele Ko`olaupoko, a song composers competition, which will be held at the Mall on Sunday, Sept. 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The competition is open to anyone, but entries cannot have been recorded before, according to Mahealani Cypher, event coordinator. The event is part of “Celebrate Ko`olaupoko”, a year-long project involving dozens of organizations from the Windward side and marking the civic club’s 75th anniversary.
“We are hoping to hear new songs that bring back memories of Ku`u Home o Kahalu`u, Waimanalo Blues, or even something like the old favorite, Kane`ohe,” says Cypher.
The contest is open in three categories: Amateur, Professional, and Hawaiian language. First prize in each category is $1,000; second prize, $500; and third prize, $250. A panel of distinguished judges will be on hand to evaluate the compositions and determine the winners.
The Ko`olaupoko HCC hosted a similar competition five years ago when the club celebrated its 70th anniversary, according to Cypher. “We were very pleased with the compositions that were presented, and are hopeful that we will have even more entries this year,” she added.
The composer must submit an application to the civic club by Aug. 17 (either postmarked or delivered by that date); a CD recording of the entry must be turned in to the civic club by Aug. 31, 2012.
The civic club is located at 46-005 Kawa St., Suite 104; mailing address is: P. O. Box 664, Kaneohe, HI 96744. For more information, call 235-8111 or email: email@example.com.
