Congratulations George!

After nearly forty years as the head of the Hawaii County Economic Opportunity Council, George Yokoyama is stepping down as Executive Director. A fundraiser/roast was held at the Afook-Chinen Civil Center in Hilo with an estimated 2,000 people gathered to honor the long-time humanitarian.
As head of HCEOC, George has spent his life providing services and assistance to the poor, elderly, young, and unemployed in our community. Many of those people at the fringes of our community who would otherwise fall through the cracks if it were not for the many grants and other assistance that come to Hawaii County as a result of thework of George and HCEOC.
