By Staff | Sep 8, 2011

The Lahainaluna High School Student Council will stage its tenth annual “Rally For America” on Friday, Sept. 9, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. along Honoapiilani Highway fronting Lahaina Cannery Mall. Students and staff volunteers will hold posters and flags to commemorate Sept. 11, 2001, a tragic day in American history. According to LHS Student Activities Coordinator Art Fillazar, the service project also pays tribute to the troops who defend this country and the memory of two Lahainaluna alumni who sacrificed their lives in the war on terrorism: Kelly Bolor of the Class of 1984 and Jay Cajimat of the Class of 2006. Drivers are asked to be cautious of the rally participants as they drive along the highway.
