I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our Mothers in our Club Wahine Ohana (Family) a very Happy Mother's Day. I believe Mother's Day is very important. It is the one day that each family should take the opportunity to recognize their core and foundation which is the role of Mother. Personally, I lost my mother at 4 years old and never remembered her growing up. Luckily for me, my Father filled the void in my life serving as both a Father and Mother to me and my brothers. When I got married to Jean and she gave birth to our son Aaron, I got to live and see how very important the role of the Mother was to our family. Jean really loved the role of Mother and was truly the core for us. Watching Jean, I learned through the years that Mothers had unconditional love for their family.
Through our 42 ½ years of marriage, Mother's Day was very important to our family. My son Aaron and I looked forward each year to fully devote, to honor, to recognize, and to say thank you to Jean for all the love, work, and devotion she showed to us daily and in keeping our family together. My son Aaron and I will continue that family tradition this Sunday by visiting the cemetery and placing flowers on Jean’s crypt and to say thank you.
When we started Club Wahine 24 years ago, Jean and I made a decision to not schedule any of our volleyball teams into club tournaments on Mother's Day. We felt it was very important for our Mothers to have their “one” Sunday away from volleyball and for our volleyball players to use this special day to recognize everything Mothers do for them.
To all of our Club Wahine Mothers, Happy Mother's Day! May you all be blessed with continued happiness and good health!

Club Wahine is excited to announce that this season’s Awards Banquet will be on Wednesday, May 25th at Mount Rainier High School in both the Cafeteria and Theatre.
