Latest PHCF News
The results are in!!! Well, really they’ve been in for awhile; we’ve just been on island time and haven’t gotten around to posting them!
Thank you to everyone that participated in the volunteer survey that PHCF ran a couple of months ago. The results were helpful and your Council is considering ways to implement some of the suggestions.
Here are some key highlights:

- $184.00 was raised during May’s PHlocking, and these went to benefit A Chosen Child Adoption Agency – thank you for the suggestion of such a worthy cause, Megan!!
- The Adopt-a-Villa in May was a very productive morning of ripping out existing old landscaping and beautifying our PHCF Villas. Trees were trimmed, plants were placed, both manual and equipment labor dug lots of holes, leaves were raked, and George and Lisa Schott treated us all to a pizza lunch!! We very much appreciate all who came to help.
- There was also a quarterly Adopt-a-Shore last month where 34 of our PHriends left the beach ‘a little better than they found it’, Jeannie won the ‘Trash Lei’ (and a bit of a cash reward), and all enjoyed a PHun lunch at Rusty’s. If you have a suggestion for a shore in that area desperately in need of our pick-up expertise, please be sure to let Susan and/or Rick Turner know the details and location.
