President's Message | April 2020

Aloha fellow HICC Members!

I hope and pray that you are all staying healthy and safe. My heart breaks as I reflect on the impact COVID-19 has had locally, state-wide, nationally, and throughout the rest of the world.

Like most organizations and companies, the HICC has implemented operating changes to protect the safety and health of its employees as well as comply with the Governor’s orders. We remain available to support the needs of our member businesses and individuals, although all communication will be through electronic or voice transmission means. The office remains closed to visitors and all HICC events and in-person meetings are canceled until further notice. We will continue to post information on our social media accounts in Facebook and Instagram and hope that you take the time to Like and comment on our posts. We will continue to publish a weekly email featuring services and products offered by HICC member businesses, as well as information on COVID-19. Contact Taylor Escalona or Miles Yoshioka at their respective email addresses if you would like to include a free ad in this publication.

Despite the mounting tragedy of this global pandemic, we are finding ways to cope and overcome the challenges before us. A huge Mahalo goes to those businesses and organizations that provide essential services. Hats off to the HICC member businesses who have morphed their operations by offering curbside pickup or delivery options, offering products and services for the homebound, and are using technology in place of group training and meetings.

For me personally, I am doing my best to take advantage of the stay-at-home order. I am working on all those little projects I’ve kept putting off because I had other more exciting things to do. I planted my “victory” garden and am hopeful that I will be able to harvest some of my own vegetables in a couple of months. My social activity is comprised of talking with neighbors as we stand at least six feet apart. I manage to get in some exercise in my walks around my neighborhood. I’ve stocked up on fresh vegetables and fruits during KTA’s Kupuna shopping hours (thank you Toby). And I’m finally putting my collection of recipes to use since my husband and I can’t go out to our favorite restaurants for meals. I long for the days when I can sit in and order my favorite breakfast at Kuhio Grille, or sit at a window seat in Cronies having a yummy burger and watching the traffic pass by. I can’t wait to spend a day walking through downtown Hilo or at the Prince Kuhio Plaza to shop, or stroll through the ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center and Lyman Museum. These days will come, and I will wait patiently.

In the meantime, please do let us know if there is any way that we can be of help.

We are all in this together!
Rhea Lee-Moku
