The Voice of Hakalau
Go back in time and read history as it happened.
Beginning in December 1940, the Hakalau Plantation published a newspaper for its employees, usually on a monthly basis. The paper covered all of the areas within the Hakalau Plantation from the Kolekole River to the Poupou Stream (Ninole). Recognizing young people for their achievements was a key topic: Eagle Scouts, Girl Scouts, 4-H, Young Buddhist Association (YBA), and graduations. Other prominent topics were weddings, births, deaths, parties, "Who's Who in Hakalau", employee recognition, employee safety tips, tranfers in and out of the plantation, and notices about changes in hours for operation for various services.
As copies of additional editions are received, they will be published on the website. Contact us if you have an issue of Voice of Hakalau you would like to share.
