Memorial in Hilo for Inouye
The public is invited to a memorial service today in Hilo for the late U.S. Senator Daniel K. Inouye.
The service will be held at the Afook-Chinen Civic Auditorium. Visitation is at noon with the service at 1 p.m.
Led by Kahu Daniel Kaniela Akaka Jr., the service will include remembrances by: state Sen. Malama Solomon; state Labor and Industrial Relations Director Dwight Takamine; Barry Taniguchi, president and CEO of KTA Super Stores; Monty Richards, chairman of Kahua Ranch; Ka‘iu Kimura, director of the ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center; and Mayor Billy Kenoi.
The Inouye family requests no flowers and no koden. They request instead that donations be made to the Daniel K. Inouye Fund at the Hawaii Community Foundation, 827 Fort Street Mall, Honolulu, HI 96813.
Contributions may also be made online at HawaiiCommunityFoundation.org. The fund will continue to help organizations and causes that the Senator championed over the years.
