June 2001

... In a recent, island-wide survey conducted by the news magazine Hawai'i Island Journal, the EHCC was elected as the best art gallery on the Island of Hawai'i.  In the issue dated April 16, 2001, the paper wrote, "For decades, EHCC in downtown Hilo has been a show case and breeding ground for island culture.  It is now under-going a renaissance."

     It is also a pleasure to inform you that the Historic Hawai'i Foundation located in Honolulu selected the EHCC to receive a 2000-2001 outstanding achievement for preservation award.  The awards committee, which toured our site on an unannounced date, was impressed with our utilization of the premises and felt that our project is a wonderful example of the positive impact historic preservation can have on our community and our island.
