I'm a retired construction estimator with 30 years in construction management. I studied construction management and estimating at Penn State.

This is my first volunteering experience. I am volunteering to continue learning. I enjoy working with and meeting new people and I enjoy learning about history and other cultures.

Ripe `ohelo berries ready to be eaten by nene.

`Ohelo (Vaccinium reticulatum) is a relative of blueberries and a favorite food of nene, the Hawaiian Goose. Its berries range from dark red to pale yellow when ripe and are sacred to Pele, the volcano deity.
