Dogwood Initiative 2001 Update
In 2001 the Rotary Club of Hilo donated seeds and seedlings towards Hiroshima, Japan's Dogwood Initiative 2001 project.  In 2004 these were planted along the Kyobashi-gawa River to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the U.S.-Japan relationship.  Recently the club received this update of the success of this project to symbolize peace.
