LAHAINA — On Furlough Friday, March 12, students in grades 3-8 in the Lahaina Complex After School Tutor Project will be treated to a free event called “Intergenerational Day,” when Lahaina seniors and tutor project youngsters learn and play together.

Students who received invitations will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis to participate in events such as hula, ukulele, crafts, preparing healthy snacks, board and outdoor games, storytelling, interviewing seniors and learning about Hawaiian history and songs.

Parents should take their youngsters to Lahaina Intermediate School by 7:45 a.m. to register for two activities. Snacks and lunch will be provided.

 The program ends at 2 p.m. Free bus transportation to the Boys and Girls Club will be available to those whose parents may not be able to pick them up.

On Furlough Friday, April 23, seventh- and eighth-graders in the tutor project will be invited to a day-long tour of Lahaina’s historical landmarks as part of the study of Hawaiian history. Snacks and lunch will be provided.

Students will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis.

Andrew Kutsunai from Lahaina Restoration Foundation will serve as the tour guide.
