Starbucks' Walk for Life:
AIDS education

Maybe you saw the booth on campus last semester but didn’t have time to stop? Did you tell yourself that you would get involved later, but still haven’t gotten around to it? The Life Foundation, Hawai‘i’s largest and oldest AIDS organization, is giving you another chance to join in the fight against AIDS by registering for the 2006 Starbucks’ AIDS Walk for Life being held at Kapiolani Park on April 23.

JSA cleans Waikiki Beach

Special to Kalamalama by Sadaji Oi, JSA advisor

On a cloudy Sunday morning, the members of the Japanese Student Association got together in Waikiki for a beach cleanup. This was one of our club activities done as community service. Although we had a lot of rain in early March, luckily we did not have rain during our activity.

Eight club members met in the front of the Army Museum at 7:30 a.m. on March 5. A former club president, Itsuto Hamano (Hama), passed out gloves, bags, and tongs to the members. This was the first club event for some members, who had signed up at Club Carnival, only a few weeks earlier.

Soon the bags were filled with pieces of glass, cans, sandals, towels, beach mats, and a lot of cigarette butts. Toshihiro Maeda, who had participated in an earlier cleanup, took us to the piers near the Outrigger Waikiki Shore Hotel, where we tried to pick up junk from among the rocks.

Although we collected little compared with the amount of trash thrown on the beach on any given day, some visitors noticed that we were working hard to keep the beach clean and thanked us for doing it. We were particularly happy to be able to get rid of some tangled lines and plastic can holders. They can harm fish when they get into the ocean. And by calling attention to the trash, our actions may have prevented some visitors to the beach from throwing things away thoughtlessly.

After 90 minutes of work, we reached our destination, Kuhio Beach Park. Club officers thanked the members for helping, and we all left the beach before the sun became hot. The JSA welcomes anyone who would like to join us next time. E-mail hpujsa@hotmail.com if you are interested in our club activities.
