The Rotary Club of Kahului is seeking nominations for the 2014 Michael H. Lyons II Palaka Award for outstanding nonprofit volunteer leadership.
To recognize long-term, substantial volunteer service to Maui County nonprofit organizations, the Rotary club has revived this accolade created by the J. W. Cameron Center in 2002 in honor of Lyons' tireless community support.
The award is named for the signature palaka shirts Lyons always wore.
Palaka Award Candidate Criteria
Nominations can be made online only at www.KahuluiRotary.com through May 31.
Up to six finalists will be honored at a special awards luncheon on Friday, Aug. 1, at The King Kamehameha Golf Club.
The luncheon is also the primary fundraiser for the ongoing Michael H. Lyons II Memorial Scholarship Fund, providing critical financial assistance to college bound Maui youth.
