On this blessed, beautiful, cruisin’ Sunday, VeeDubs of Vintage VW Club of Hawaii, Westside Ka’a Hui Braddahood, Der Perle Stadt Kreuzers, 706 Ewa Beach VW Club, and the Hawaiian VW Outlaws started bright and early on the Westside. Cruised through Waipahu 96797 to Waipio Shopping Ctr. From Waipio Matt & Elke Gillooly led the convoy on the H-1 to the Airport Viaduct to the Airport Trade Ctr. Matt & Elke Gillooly led us on a prayer, and led thirty-six VeeDubs to the Institute for Human Services. It was already a block party as the VeeDubs rolled-in. Participants generously donated and gave all they could. Volks folks went on a tour of the IHS facility. Curious passerby came by and checked-out the block party. It was definitely a happenin’ event.
Again, MAHALOS to fellow VeeDubs for supporting Institute for Human Services for Women and Children. Will repeat same time next year, so pass the word next year’s grandeur event.

Once in a while we promote our sponsors. Today on Alex Ching’s birthday we’re promoting Island VeeDub. Alex has been sponsoring the VW Club Of Hawaii for years and we truly appreciate his sponsorship. Alex suuports the VW community on his spare time but somehow between fatherhood and being the great husband that he is, he does manage to support the VW community by being the premier distributor in VW parts that we all need and want. Alex, too, is a craftsman. After 15 years of painstaking man-hours he transformed a ’62 ‘vert to a Shaka Show Best of Show and hotVWs Magazine feature VeeDub. Not too many VW enthusiasts have conquered this feat while balancing life in paradise. You may see Alex cruising his daily drivers — either a yellow and white 21-window or a black ‘vert Ghia. Again, MAHALO Alex and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
