LAHAINA – The Lahainaluna High School Student Council staged its 11th annual “Rally For America” on Sept. 11.

Student and staff volunteers annually line Honoapiilani Highway fronting Lahaina Cannery Mall waving flags and patriotic posters and banners.

“It’s our way of remembering those who lost their lives on that tragic day in American history,” said LHS Student Activities Coordinator Art Fillazar, “as well as honor those who were the heroes and those in our military who continue to protect our freedom.”

Close to 200 students and staff spent a couple of hours after school at the rally.
