In 1965, Kihei was very much different than today in so many ways. There were two reasons the Kihei Community Association (KCA) was created that year--water and roads.
"Not so different, eh?" remarked KCA President Mike Moran.
At the Tuesday, May 20, KCA meeting, "Water Resources and Management in Hawai'i and How it Affects South Maui" will be presented by William Tam, deputy director for Water Resource Management at the state Department of Land and Natural Resources, and state Water Commissioner Jonathan Starr.

"We hear the limitations on the 'Iao Aquifer juxtaposed with the huge number of South Maui planned projects," said Moran. "Where will the needed water originate? Now the decade-long decision to return water to the four streams adds additional questions."
This issue and related topics will be the focus of discussion at the meeting.
Doors open at 6 p.m. for 6:30 p.m. meeting at the Kihei Charter Middle school at 41 East Lipoa.
KCA's Maui Food Bank drive continues. Why not make it a monthly habit to bring a few cans of nutritious food?
The KCA is an all-volunteer nonprofit with no government funding. Consider becoming a supporting member.
