Kumu Kimokeo Kapalehua opened the celebration with a Hawaiian chant. HIHWNMS Maui Programs Coordinator Patty Miller and Allen Tom presided over the event, which featured “Helping Hands Leis” and commendations for the members of the Rotary Club of Kīhei Sunrise.
Rotary Club of Kīhei Sunrise Community Service Chair John Musser worked tirelessly with club and community members to help turn an out-of-date bathroom into an office. Musser contacted a number of local contractors and business owners, who provided the supplies at reduced rates, and completed most of the work himself.
Members of the Rotary Club of Kīhei Sunrise have pledged their continued support—both labor and financial—for the long-term renovations of the sanctuary.
