Dear FOS11 Member,

Lynnell Ka'opua Akamu, a mental health social worker at the Spark M. Matsunaga VA Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, recently contacted Families of September 11. Lynnell has been organizing a commemoration program in Hawaii since 2002 to recognize and remember all those who died on September 11, 2001. Last year she decided to recognize those who had some connection to Hawaii. She was able to reach two families, and four family members attended.

This year, Lynnell would like to invite all 9/11 families and friends in Hawaii to the 2005 Commemoration titled "Gone but not Forgotten." It will be held at the Spark M. Matsunaga VA Medical Center on September 7, 2005, from 9-10AM. If you would like to attend, please contact Lynnell so that she can make arrangements with the Provost Marshall to allow you onto the Tripler Army Hospital grounds, where the VA medical center is located.
