At a recent Rotary District 5000 assembly, which was attended by 70 Maui Rotary club members, a surprise presentation was made to Russ Sumida, president-elect of the Rotary E-Club of Hawai'i--Hawai'i's newest club. As is the tradition when a new club is chartered, each of the clubs in the district award the newest club $100 in seed money. As seen here, Maui's nine club presidents showered Sumida with checks.
