On March 13, 2019 the “Kū Like Kākou” event took place from 5:30-8:00pm at the HUB Barn in Hawi. The event’s purpose was to unite the community together through social emotional health. There were multiple resource tables available for people to look at and interact with professionals, free dinner was provided through Aunty Shirley’s culinary classes, and an interactive discussion took place towards the end. About 125-150 people came for the event, which achieved the goal to have 100 people. Many individuals learned more about mental health and were able to express their thoughts, feelings, and ways to support each other. The team that organized the event were ecstatic that such an experience with the community was able to be put together and pulled off with huge success. Little did they know, a tragic event would take place later that night.

At around 11:30pm the same night, 2 explosions took place at the HUB due to a gas leak in the kitchen. The raging fire caved the roof in, shattered the windows, and left the area burned and blackened. The unfortunate events caused shock to the community. Thankfully, no one was injured during the happening. Hopefully, the HUB can recover to be the former glory it was.
