For the past year, through a grant from AlohaCare, parents have been encouraged to bring their young children into the Molokai Community Health Center for Well-Baby checkups, and receiving small gift certificates for each completed visit.
Twice a year there is also a “lucky number” drawing. In the spirit of Christmas, the following prizes were awarded: Kaimina`aua Dudoit ($200), Kamehana Phifer-Kaili ($100), Kalelia Wallace ($100), Reighley-Ann Ignacio ($50), and Koa Deschene ($50). The lucky winners will receive gift certificates to the Molokai merchant of their choice.
Best wishes to all the healthy, happy keiki on Molokai for a joyous holiday season!
