Tara Garcia, captain of Team “Westside Mamacitas & Family,” has participated in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of West Maui for two years. Asked why, she said, “I was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2014. It metastasized in my breast in August last year and then into my brain in November. I have been receiving treatment since. I would not have been able to make it through this difficult time without my amazing friends, family and the American Cancer Society. I am truly blessed.” Team meetings are held every third Thursday of the month at 5:30 p.m. at Lahaina Hongwanji Mission. All are invited. For information, call Richard “Noosh” Nishihara at (808) 870-6478. Pictured with Garcia (second from left) are sons Gustavo and Noah, and her mom, Robin.

For more information, call the school office at 662-3965. Light refreshments will be served.


Kamp Kumulani set

KAPALUA - Kamp Kumulani 2016 is coming to the Napilihau Recreation Center for the 18th year from May 30 to June 3.

Hours are 9 a.m. to noon. The program is free for keiki who have completed kindergarten through fifth grade.

This year's theme is "Jesus Sees. Jesus Knows. Jesus Saves."

The church noted, "Prepare to embark on an adventure like no other, scouring the mysterious fathoms of the deep sea. As kids are submerged in God's Word, they will discover that Jesus saw people differently. He didn't see just what was on the outside; He saw people for who they were on the inside - down deep. They will discover that a relationship with Jesus Christ changes everything!"

Keiki don't need to sign up ahead of time - just show up! For more information, call Kumulani Chapel at 669-6905.
