I am looking forward to a great year for Rotary in Upcountry Maui and across the state. As you know, this is the 100th year of Rotary in Hawaii and we want to make it special.
I am excited to be surrounded by such amazing, caring and driven people. Wendy and the rest of you have helped raise the bar for all that we are doing upcountry; making membership a priority, doing more impactful community service projects, more frequent socials and trying to strengthen our perception within the community.
This year's theme is "Be A Gift To The World." Let us continue to be that gift to our community, the state and our world.
Our club collected $246.60 in cash and $1311.00 in school supply value. Supplies will be distributed to Upcountry schools by Keiki Cupboard, a Maui nonprofit.
Great work everyone! Thanks, Zak, for setting up the tent. Thanks to Chloe Hornack for her outstanding contribution. Who could turn her down? Thanks everyone else for coming out!
Jud Cunningham of Rotary Club of Kahului is looking for volunteers. Here's part of a message from Anders Lyons:
This year’s Weinberg Friends Project will involve a community service project at the Maui Food Bank in Wailuku on Saturday, September 27, 2014, from 8:30 to 12:30. We’re almost half way to our goal of 25 Rotarian volunteers for this project and we would welcome your support. This will be a paint up/fix up project for their administrative offices (details to follow).
We'll have a sign up sheet for this service project at Friday's meeting.
