Did You Miss the Health Survey on the Big Island?

Image
Greetings everyone,  Few weeks ago,  Big Island Deaf Club teamed with the Gallaudet Deaf Health Communication and Quality of Life Center to inform our local community of their Quality of Life survey. We really appreciated their visit with us on the Big Island. Are you deaf? Over 18 years old? Want $25? Contact  PROMISASL@gallaudet.edu  for more information.  If you qualify and take their survey, they will give you a $25 gift card. You can take the survey at home from your computer, ipad, or VP. If you are interested in participating, please email them at  PROMISASL@gallaudet.edu . Neighbor islands are welcome to participate in the survey online or through VP.

Introduction to my new blog team

Image
Greetings everyone. I'd like to introduce Joey (right) and Roy (middle) to you. They are new on my team starting last Fall. We will feed the latest news to you. Joey is from Wisconsin but has lived in Hawaii for nearly 20 years. She lived the first 5 years on Oahu and than for 14 years in Kailua Kona. She loves ASL but also knitting. She wants to support the ASL community. Roy has lived for 5 years in Waikoloa but will move this month back to his home state, Alaska. He is originally from South Carolina. Hiking, swimming and reading are his hobbies. Also, he wants to support the ASL community. We welcome the volunteer assistance of anyone who would like to further our goals of providing the best information possible to the deaf community of HawaiĆ­.

The 19th Annual Day at the Capitol   the Hawaii State Capitol On Thursday, March 7, 2019, Linda Sykora, Ronald McBride and Thijs van den Berg arrived at about 8:30am at the Hawaii State Capitol in Honolulu. Linda is president of the Big Island Deaf Club and Ronald vice president. I am social media specialist of the Big Island Deaf Club. The purpose of visiting our state legislators and advocate was to discuss the needs of the deaf community (dental, housing, transportation, and jobs). Once at the Capitol Auditorium Lobby, my Big Island group suggested that we greet Governor Ige before the Opening Ceremonies. We took the elevator to the fifth floor of the Capitol. In the Governor's ceremonial Room, Governor Ige greeted visiting neighbor island groups; Kauai, Maui and our island. We took a lot of photos. After visiting this beautiful room, we went back to the Capitol Auditorium Lobby for the Opening Ceremonies. Daintry Bartoldus (Executive Administrator), Bruce S. Anderson (
