activerain gathering: ActiveRain OAHU Winter Meetup 2013! - 12/08/13 12:34 PM
ActiveRain Meetup
Zippy’s Waipio Gentry
December 06, 2013
The “purpose” of the ActiveRain Meetup is to “connect with other members of ActiveRain”.  It gives us a sense of meeting those members because most of the time we are connecting with others nationwide online. 
Our meeting consisted of long time members Randy Prothero, Maureen Fukumoto and ….moix. A new member Michele Efron-Youngblood came in hopes of learning more about ActiveRain and what WE do.

I did a little write up…mainly for Michele so that maybe she would consider joining over 300k members of the Real Estate … (10 comments)

All those who are on Oahu on December 06, 2013 and can meet us at Waipio Gentry Zippy’s at 5:15pm for a Winter Meetup…let us know so I can have the place set up a bit to accommodate us for a table together.

We look forward to your response and a great meet up time!

activerain gathering: Meeting a Long Time ActiveRain Member--The People Behind the Words. - 11/14/12 01:54 PM
If any member thinks like me, then you long for the day you actually get to meet a member who has become an online friend,  a trusted advocate and peer.  One who you would trust to refer a client and to discuss any topic in the world with.
This particular Community Member of ActiveRain not only helps out another member but gives sound advice. Well, this kind of sounds like me HAHAHA…but seriously, Debe Maxwell is one of those people that just grows on you over the years. 
I got to finally meet Debe and her wonderful husband Ray.  They … (27 comments)

activerain gathering: Just Another Benefit of ActiveRain | Meeting With Mary Yonkers - 09/24/10 06:02 AM
It was this past Wednesday, September 22, 2010 at approximately 10:00am.  After parking in the huge parking structure across from the Hale Koa Hotel I hiked up the steps to the main outside lobby area and there she was!  Mary Yonkers! She let me know a few weeks ago that she would be coming to my island of Oahu and asked if I would meet with her.
I am honored each and every time that a member of ActiveRain contacts me and asks to meet up when they arrive. (I am darn lucky that I live in paradise, where many love … (30 comments)

activerain gathering: ActiveRainer's Meet Up- The Patricia Kennedy Saga - 12/30/09 03:27 PM
The Saga:   Patricia Kennedy and her VERY good friend Dick...came to visit Randy Prothero and I in Mililani today. They've been on the beaten beating many paths on three islands (Maui, Hawaii aka Big Island and our island of Oahu) so far and having a grand ole time!  As always, after 'knowing' a fellow Active Rain member for a few years we were bound to meet up some day.
The Shack in Mililani is where we hogged the table for 2.5 hours hung out, had lunch, just a tiny bit of real estate talk (thank goodness) a bunch of conversation and many a laugh. It's as I always imagine it to be when I … (67 comments)

activerain gathering: What is ActiveRain? ..... THIS is ActiveRain! - 08/05/09 01:22 AM
Our founder, Jonathan Washburn asked a question the the other week on his post  What is ActiveRain? I went back there a few mornings later to see if he responded to my question about coming back to tell us all how wonderful ‘we' are. And he did.
Because of Jon and his staff's involvement with the community I have remained a loyal member on ActiveRain since March of 2007.  It made a difference to have them interact with us on a daily basis. It made a difference that they cared and took into consideration when I had a concern. It made … (61 comments)

activerain gathering: The Phenomenal Connections Through ActiveRain - 02/09/09 07:29 AM

Not often do I meet ActiveRain members unless they are vacationing in Hawaii or coming for a conference.  Last year Katherine Carey (ActiveRain member from Washington) and I were supposed to get together but last year was hectic...and she was touring different sites. We made it a point to get together this year and she basically decided to just relax with her family this year on her vacation.
We met at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, our 82 year old pink hotel on the shores of Waikiki Beach next to the Sheraton Hotel. Since June 1, 2008 the Royal Hawaiian Hotel has been closed … (40 comments)

activerain gathering: Hawaii Randy is Missing! - 11/09/08 04:00 AM
We do get close to some people we connect with here on ActiveRain and no doubt Neal Bloom and I have been corresponding and talking on the phone for a long time but we have yet to meet in person. You see, he was the one of the first few who took me under wing and gave me advice in the beginning. Then of course TLW and of course Midori Miller have taught me much....about personalities in the Rain. I have learned from many here and all the Kings and Queens of Localism and ActiveRain were all in one place last night at the ActiveRain Party … (16 comments)

activerain gathering: The Haydon Family in Hawaii (And Randy Cheats) - 07/22/08 01:53 PM
Well, if you could just see Hawaii Randy running...yes, literally running to his car to beat me to blogging about our meeting with Cyndee & Jack Haydon along with their two wonderful boys!
Here's his story:  I Met the Haydens and Then Beat Celeste "WooHoo Sally" Cheeseman to Post About it
Yes, the Haydon Family made that LONG trip to Honolulu, Hawaii (unike Neal Bloom; who keeps saying the trip is too long) and have been surfing, snorkeling, sunning and funning for the last two weeks.
We met today at Zippy's Restaurant in Waipio Gentry around 11:15 and it was … (52 comments)

After Hawaii Randy Prothero gave an introduction post Active Rain Goes Hawaiian to announce the "Surprise Celebrity Guests", they had a visit with Celeste WooHoo Sally Cheeseman and then jumped in Randy's car to head to the Active Rain Gathering (The first in Hawaii) at Gordon Biersche Lanai.
WooHoo Sally's son and daughter went early to help her set up the tables with little place setting gift bags while Randy went to pick up Sharon Simms. In they came and oh, goodness. Warm hugs for one of the people who made WooHoo warm and fuzzy all over from the beginning of her … (96 comments)
