Rotary Changes Lives
 
The Rotary Club of Lahaina, partnering with Sysco Hawaii donated $4,000 in wholesale fresh produce (4,400 pounds), as well as refrigerated and frozen items for needy families through the Maui Food Bank. Because the Food Bank does not have storage for perishable items, Sysco is working with the club to keep items in storage in their facilities until time of distribution.
 
We'd like to give a shout out to Maui Food Bank and Sysco for helping to put this deal together.  The following week, half a dozen other clubs on Maui took advantage of this offer and purchsaed over 20,000# is food for local families!

The Rotary Club of Lahaina along with the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise and Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset placed the first 22 rescue tubes on West Maui County Beaches on February 26th, and February 28th.  The installations included Papalaua Beach Park, Ukumehame Beach Park, Launiupoko Beach Park, and Puamana Beach park.  The rescue tubes will help provide an aid in saving lives and hopefully eliminate the instances of double drownings at those locations.
Rotary Club of Lahaina President Darryl Ng, PP Rick Nava and wife Rina Nava, and PP Mila Salvador made the club's twice yearly trip to the Philippines to see the work done since our last visit and to setup some new and exciting programs for communities in the PI.  Our first stop was to Ilo Ilo where we were invited to the annual Dinagyang Festival that celebrates the indigenous peoples of the Philippines. This was especially fitting as we are working on or have recently completed projects for Bajao and Atti tribes of indigenous peoples. 
The Rotary Club of Lahaina hosted a year-end social at Napili Point open to all West Side Rotarians including The Rotary Club of Lahaina, The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise, and The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset.  It was a great time for all and we watched the sunset while President Darryl Ng bartended and all participants brought great pupus for our potlock!  We hope to do more socials together to create further fellowship among fellow Rotarians!
The Rotary Club of Lahaina along with the awesome staff at the Whaler, a luxury condiminum on Kaanapali beach, installed televisions in 15 classrooms at Lahaina Intermediate School.  Our Rotary club heard about the need for the installations when we were told that although TVs were delivered over a year ago, they were being strapped to carts because of the high cost to install (The DOE had received bids for upwards of $1000 per room!).  Rotary Club of Lahaina members including President Darryl Ng, President Elect Kalei Jaramillo, and Service Chair and PP Mila Salvador (Who is General Manager at the Whaler), along with whaler team members were able to install all TVs in 5 hours.  We are very grateful to the Whaler for helping us with the needs of our local Intermediate school.  The school will no longer have to worry about broken TV's on their carts!
The Rotary Club of Lahaina prides itself on the partnerships we have made with clubs in the Philippines to bring school supplies to needy children, and to provide clean drinking water and sanitation to areas that have none.  Believe it or not, many schools in the Philippines, even in the most developed of areas, lack access to clean water and sanitation for those that cannot afford it.
Rotary Club of Lahaina and The Whaler at Kaanapali Team up to clean up Kanaapali Beach!  Come join us for our next beach cleanup on Saturday, November 3rd at 8am Makai (oceanside) of the beach Hale!   Parking is free (just tell them you're with the beach cleanup) and The Whaler provides coffee, iced tea, water, snacks, and all the equipment needed to help keep Kaanapali Beach clean!
