MidWeek Islander (Central Oahu) - - Islander - By SARAH PACHECO

Hawai­ian Is­lands Im­preza Club mem­bers will cruise for a cause Satur­day at the 2009 Aloha United Way Hawaii IClub Char­ity Cruise.

Driv­ers meet at 7:30 a.m. near Cen­tral Oahu Re­gional Park’s ten­nis courts for a pre­cruise swap meet and car setup. Roll­out be­gins at 9 when they head to Servco Subaru in Ma­puna­puna for a prize draw­ing. The cruise winds over the Pali to Wind­ward Mall for a prize and food break, fol­lowed by a photo op at Chi­na­man’sHat and shave ice at Mat­sumoto’s.

Signups are from 7 and 8:30 a.m. at CORP. A min­i­mum $10 do­na­tion is re­quired, and one raf­fle ticket will be given for each do­na­tion.

All traf­fic laws and road eti­quette must be fol­lowed, and Walt Rivera warns that those who speed, race or act of­fen­sively will be “frowned upon and be­lit­tled by the HIIC flamers.” For de­tails, call Rivera at 741-8142 or Ted Calvero at 232-9204.

“It’s open to any­one as long as they put the greater cause at hand first,” said Rivera.“The idea of just giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity is our goal, no mat­ter if it’s in a small way or a big way.”

Josie Hoh, David Orr and Linda Bard help Waimea Val­ley cel­e­brate its third year as an of­fi­cial nat­u­ral and cul­tural re­source Aug. 15 by pur­chas­ing na­tive plants dur­ing “Pu­lama O Waimea.” Be­sides plants, there were plenty of Hawai­ian ac­tiv­i­ties, tours, games, crafts, demon­stra­tions and mo‘olelo from kupuna to keep every­one en­gaged. The Waimea ahupua‘a was reded­i­cated on Aug. 12, 2006, fol­low­ing its ac­qui­si­tion by OHA. Photo by Leah Ball, lball@mid­
