UGH Board Members(3)

Since the inception of the Ukulele Guild of Hawaii there have been hundreds of dedicated members  who have supported and helped the Guild share information about this wonderful instrument and they no doubt have hoped to keep this going.  We can only do this with the help of all the members, past, present and the future ones to come.  So, please help us find  those future members and share our newsletters, our web site, our Facebook page and most importantly what you know about the ukulele.
