Lahaina Restoration Foundation offers ‘History In Our Back Yard’ to area teachers

By Staff | Dec 27, 2018

Fourteen teachers learned about Lahaina’s history through Lahaina Restoration Foundation’s program

LAHAINA – Lahaina Restoration Foundation’s Community Education Committee recently provided teachers from six West Maui schools a new module of their “History In Our Back Yard” program.

Held in the video theater of the Old Lahaina Courthouse on a Saturday morning, most of the 14 attending were teaching in Lahaina for the first time.

They were presented with an overview of Lahaina’s rich history and cultural heritage to assist them with a better sense of place as new members of the community.

The next part of this educational program for teachers is being planned for spring 2019 and will consist of LRF’s annually provided walking tour of Lahaina’s historic sites.
