Phillips to discuss co-ops

By Staff | Sep 30, 2010

The West Maui Lions Club’s annual Slipper Drive was held in July in front of Longs Drug Store. A total of 180 slippers and 36 backpacks were collected from the community, West Maui Lions Club, Kahului Airport Lions Club, Maui Lions Club, Kihei Lions and Mark and Eloise Mizuno from Heleakala Lions Club. The slippers were dropped off on Friday, Sept. 17, at Princess Nahienaena Elementary School (pictured) and King Kamehameha III School. The Slipper Drive, a signature project of West Maui Lions Club in Lahaina, is held each year prior to the start of school. “On behalf of the West Maui Lions Club, we want to thank the community as well as surrounding Lions Clubs on Maui for their support,” said President Linda Elms.

LAHAINA — Interested in learning about how co-ops operate — including food co-ops — and what they can do for our island community?

Steve Phillips of West Maui Sustainability will give a presentation on co-ops on Thursday, Sept. 30, at 7 p.m. at Lahaina’s University of Hawaii Maui College building.

Phillips helped develop a co-op in Boulder, Colorado, and conducted co-op education in Venezuela and other locales.
