Annual Meeting Highlights
Annual Meeting breakfasts may just have to be a mainstay!  Folks from both services showed up for the great breakfast that was served just before the Annual Meeting.  The meeting was scheduled between the two services to accommodate members from both services. Many thanks to the Hospitality Ministry for organizing the breakfast, and to all the members who shared lots of onolicious goodies!
Opening up the meeting was a 20-minute video recapping the year's events. Members were reminded and amazed at all the wonderful things that took place during a year of transition. The ECW and Ke Akua Youth Group were busy as ever going forward with their many outreach activities, programs and mission plans, despite the absence of a permanent rector. The video will be posted on the church website shortly, but for those on Facebook, you can view it now on the All Saints' webpage HERE.
We are very grateful to our outgoing Vestry members Mario Antonio, Clifton Arruda and Mary Schulz who served faithfully for the past three years including a very challenging 2012!  Mahalo nui loa!
Vestry 2013 
Three new Vestry members were elected:  Bill Caldwell, Bob Terao and Janis Wright.  Convention Delegates are: Jan Hashizume, Janet Wilson, Mary Schulz, Bob Terao, and alternates Bill Caldwell, David Murray, Rosalind Terao and Gail Weir. 
Senior Warden, Galen Nakamura, will continue in his role as will Junior Warden David Murray.  Along with Church Administrator Chris Wataya, they have been working triple duty to keep things functioning smoothly. We thank God for blessing us with these selfless people who have given so much of their time to the Church. 
Thanks to all of our members who volunteer so much of their time to care for the church, the congregation and our community.  You are the heartbeat of All Saints'! Here's looking forward to a bright and promising year ahead!
Good luck to our youth girls!!!

ECW 2012 luncheon
The Episcopal Church Women of All Saints' will be having their annual luncheon on Saturday, February 16, 2013, 11:30 a.m., at the Island Palms Restaurant in Kapa'a.  Anyone interested in attending is asked to confirm reservations with Janis Wright at 822-3930 or 652-2524, or e-mail her, by February 11, 2013.  It has been suggested that since the luncheon falls on the scheduled monthly church workday, that attendees work up an appetite at the workday before heading to the luncheon!  Great idea!
