With sadness we inform you that our Club Secretary, Rhys Haydon, has resigned his position and left our Region for the one where he has resided for over a year, the Pacific Northwest Region. Rhys and his family moved to Gig Harbor, Washington after their farm was negatively affected by the lava flow in the Puna District, and Rhys could not find employment at the time as a Physicians Assistant Nurse, so they moved off island. Rhys had been working as Secretary with the board remotely as we all have by phone and now Zoom on computer.
We wish Rhys and his family the best in the future. He is now on the Board with the 356 Registry, so he is very busy! He has also surpassed me in the number his stable of running Porsches! His family still has their hearts here in Hawaii.
Aloha and Mahalo to Rhys for all of his help and efforts.
If anyone in the Membership is interested in volunteering to be club Secretary for the balance of Rhys’s term, which would have ended at the end of this year, please come forward and let us know!
