Aloha Rotarians!

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.

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. 


A big Mahalo to our title sponsor, 3D Design & Builders' Hawaiian Solar Juice, photovoltaic division and to our other 25 sponsors, businesses, and volunteers who gave money, prizes, and time to make our first tournament a memorable one. Thanks also to golf pro, Ron Huffman, and the team at Pukalani Golf Club for making it all go so smoothly.

Rotary districts mobilize to support survivors of Ecuador, Japan quakes
After a series of three earthquakes -- two in Japan and one in Ecuador -- killed hundreds of people, injured thousands, and caused billions of dollars in damage late last week, Rotary members in those regions have created disaster relief funds to help survivors. In Ecuador, the powerful 7.8-magnitude quake that struck Saturday night has killed more than 400 people, with 2,500 injured. Those figures are expected to rise. Rotary District 4400 established a service fund to raise money for relief efforts. Contact District Governor Manuel A. Nieto Jijon for information on how to donate. In Japan,...
