By Staff | Apr 16, 2015

The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset is West Maui’s only evening Rotary Club. This new club, the tenth on Maui, meets Tuesdays at the Royal Lahaina Resort.

LAHAINA – Residents and visitors are invited to join an Earth Day beach cleanup led by the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset on Wednesday, April 22, from 5 to 6 p.m.

Community volunteers are asked to meet at 5 p.m. at the Lahaina Jodo Mission parking area at 12 Ala Moana St. in Lahaina. Teams of volunteers will clean the beach, working south from the Lahaina Jodo Mission.

The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset will provide trash collection bags, plastic gloves and bottled water for volunteers. The cleanup will last one hour.

“This Earth Day beach cleanup gives those who are concerned about the environment an opportunity to pitch in and do something positive,” said Liz May, co-president of the Lahaina Sunset Rotary Club.

“It’s part of our club’s ‘Go Green, Keep the Island Clean’ initiative.”

The Lahaina Sunset club is part of the global network of 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and territories, including ten clubs on Maui.

To ensure ample supplies are on hand for the cleanup, volunteers are asked to register by calling club Co-president Jim Fahnestock at (808) 214-5282.
