Join Surfrider Oahu for our first Chapter meeting of the year, this Wednesday, February 2nd! The Oahu Chapter is excited for new beginnings in 2011, including a new meeting location. We will be meeting   at 2419 Ferdinand Ave, Honolulu, HI, 96822 (which is in the Manoa area). The meeting will be held from 7pm to 9pm and is potluck style so bring a dish or drink to share with everyone. We will be discussing topics that include our upcoming Hawaii Chapter Conference, our involvement with the Kyo-Ya Development issue, the Haleiwa Beach Park development, the International Marine Debris conference, and our upcoming beach cleanups.

If one of your new year’s resolutions is to get more involved with your community and help protect our beaches and oceans then come to our next meeting and see how you can help.
