Radio Station News:
July 10, 2006:  First bi-annual board meeting of Ohana de Watsonville.  Agenda Topics (in brief):  July 15, 2006 fund raiser concert and
luau; FUND RAISING; treasurer's report (no kokua in da bank); expanding on board member requirements, new procedures for DJ's;
attracting more volunteers and volunteer DJ's... Minutes from past board meetings to be published on the website/new section coming in
April '06.

SPONSORS:  We are looking for sponsors for The July 15, 2006 KAPU-lp / Ohana de Watsonville Fund Raiser, concert and luau.  We are
looking for businesses, corporations and individuals that would be interested in supporting this event with $1000 - $2500.  Your name, or
business name will go on all event advertising; 1 year's radio station underwriting; Link on KAPU's website for 1 year.  We could really use
some help in defraying the costs of bring the performers here from the islands.  Proceeds from the fund raiser will go towards our day to
day operating expenses and launching our first community project:  SENIOR INTERNET MENTORING.

SENIOR INTERNET MENTORING: Did you say Internet mentoring for senior citizens? YES! We are very close to starting this project.
We believe that this Internet mentoring program can be favorable for these elderly individuals especially as broadband,
mobile broadband,
and DSL technologies continue to proliferate. Here's da scoop: If you know of a senior, or are one, (probably you are not a candidate for this
program if you are reading this on the net (ha ha, but maybe you want to volunteer to help?) The program is this simple...We will teach you
the ins and outs of the Internet, remove the fear, the hype, the gripe. Let's get you connected. Once you know the ropes (I mean the nets),
you walk away with an experienced laptop computer, for free, yeah. In return, you mentor another senior...and so on.

Music Madness in Watsonville:  Ohana Volunteer Norma Crouch and Ohana Board Secretary visited Music Madness records,
located on Freedom Boulevard in Watsonville last month.  They were armed with a list of Hawaiian Mele CD's to fill up the new Hawaiian
Music section.  Can you believe it!  Hawaiian music for sale in Watsonville...whodathunk!
