 Hawaii State Coordinator needed



 Hawaii is the 50th state to join the United States. The Kingdom of Hawaii was sovereign from 1810 until 1893 when the monarchy was overthrown by resident American (and some European) businessmen. It was an independent republic from 1894 until 1898, when it was annexed by the United States as a territory, becoming a state on August 21, 1959.
