The members of our Rotary Club of Windward Oahu Sunrise (Kailua) will be at the Foodland Super Market in Kailua this coming Saturday, January 12, 2013 from 9 AM to 3 PM to solicit donations of bags of rice from local shoppers to support the Hawaii Foodbank as part of a statewide effort by all of the clubs in Rotary District 5000 to collect as much as 400,000 pounds of rice to help feed needy families here in Hawaii. 

The results of this statewide effort will be one of the items announced at the upcoming Rotary Globe Peace Forum, which is being held at the Hawaii Convention Center from January 25th to 27th.

The keynote speaker for that event is the pro-democracy icon and Nobel Peace laureate, Myanmar Parliamentarian Aung San Suu Kyi. She will be receiving the prestigious Hawaii Rotary Global Peace Award and delivering the keynote address at the Rotary Global Peace Forum in Honolulu on the evening of January 26, 2013.
