LAHAINA — The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise has once again brought goodwill to the community by becoming a partner in education with Princess Nahienaena Elementary School.

Members introduced “Andy & Elmer’s Apple Dumpling Adventure” to second-graders.

This literacy, ethics and vocational grand adventure examines what “we think, say and do” using videos and a fun-loving activity book as teaching tools.

Students are learning the value of telling the truth, being fair to one another, building goodwill and better friendships and understanding they can make decisions that are beneficial to all.

One teacher at the school noted, “This is certainly the right age group in students’ lives to be building character, and the students very much look forward to Rotary Club members’ fun classroom presentations.”

Karen Kondo is the acting liaison for the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise, with the Lahaina Rotary Club assisting with classroom activities that serve approximately 100 students.

In addition, as part of Lahaina Restoration Foundation’s ongoing efforts to keep downtown Lahaina clean and attractive, Rotarians spent Saturday morning, Feb. 26, oiling trash barrels.

This annual effort — this year led by Charles Schneider, Rosoline Craig, Kim Treloar, Ann Neizman, Kondo and Theo Morrison of LRF — keeps the old trash barrels strong against island elements.
