Waimea Town Meeting celebrates Kahilu Theatre (Nov. 4)


It’s hard to believe nearly 30 years have passed since the late Richard Smart “gifted” the Waimea community with a modern performance venue — Kahilu Theatre, which he subsequently supported generously for many years.

To celebrate its 30th season and the community’s sustaining vision and financial support to keep Kahilu Theatre alive and thriving even in difficult financial times, the staff and board of Kahilu Theatre will host Waimea Community Association’s November Town Meeting at 5:15 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4 – at the theatre instead of the usual school cafeteria meeting location.

Everyone is invited to join the celebration and learn about what’s new and exciting about the coming season, said Kahilu Theatre’s Managing Director Janet Coburn.

Also on the agenda will be the introduction of a slate of nominees for the WCA two-year officer positions of Secretary and Treasurer, as required by the association’s bylaws. Nominations will also be accepted from the floor that evening. The actual election will occur in January 2011.

As always, all who attend WCA monthly Town Meetings are asked to help continue the association’s 2010 commitment to help Waimea’s hard-pressed food pantries by bringing a donation – preferably cash or a check – or non-perishable food items.

Cash or checks are given to the Waimea pantries to purchase gift certificates from Waimea grocery stores so that recipients are able to buy fresh items such as milk, vegetables or fruit as well as other essentials. Checks may be payable directly to a food pantry so may be tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Also at the November, meeting Starbucks-Waimea will again contribute hot coffee with a suggestion that those enjoying it might express their gratitude by making a donation on the spot to the food pantry collection drive.

For information, call WCA President Sherman Warner (885-1725) or visit www.waimeacommunityassociation…
