Governor Signs Hawaii 3R’s Bill

Gov. Neil Abercrombie signed Senate Bill 1383 into law. The bill, now Act 150, allows the Hawaii 3R’s School Repair and Maintenance Fund to receive money from the School-Level Minor Repairs and Maintenance Special Fund. Hawaii 3R’s (Repair, Remodel and Restore Hawaii’s public schools) was created in 2001 by U.S. Sen. Dan Inouye. State Sen. Jill Tokuda along with members and staff from Hawaii 3R’s join Abercrombie for the signing of Senate Bill 1383.

Maunalua Bay Foundation Gets $10,000

The Independence Day at Maunalua Bay Foundation board accepted Walgreens’ donation of $10,000, which enabled it to hold the event debt-free. This allows Maunalua Bay Foundation to start off next year’s fundraising without any recovery of funds. More importantly, it will be able to award a scholarship this year, which is a part of its core mission. Pictured (from left) are Win Schoneman, IDMBF entertainment chairman; Dianne Glei, 2011 IDMBF event chairwoman; Scott Sutton, Walgreens district manager; Kevin Nitta, IDMB treasurer.
