Here is some information regarding our group:
What is LEAHI?
LEAHI is a group of adult and teen fans who enjoy modeling with LEGO bricks and working to promote interest in LEGO products within the community, both locally in Hawaii and on the Internet. We share our enjoyment of LEGO with the public via displays held periodically each year.
When did LEAHI get started?
LEAHI began in April, 2003, by a few adult fans of LEGO who decided to share their interests as a group. Over time, we were able to grow our club by sharing our common interest in LEGO products and being able to participate in community events.
Doesn’t LEAHI mean something in Hawaiian?
Yes. Besides being the name of our group, Leahi is also the Hawaiian name for the famous O’ahu landmark known as Diamond Head (also known as Kaimana Hila).
How much does it cost to join LEAHI?
Annual membership dues are $20.00 per person per calendar year, and is non-refundable. Dues are collected at the beginning of each calendar year, and are used to offset club expenses, including (but not limited to) prizes, promotions, etc.
What are the Membership benefits?
- A subscription to the LEAHI members' mailing list.

How often do LEAHI members meet?
Members meet at least once every other month to discuss LEGO products, upcoming events, building techniques, and to share our own creations and camaraderie.
