The Rotary International “People of Action” video will be shown at the “Celebrations” meeting. The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset and three other Maui Coastal Rotary Clubs were selected to be featured in this membership recruitment video that will be aired worldwide at the Virtual Rotary International Convention. A main focus of this video is the Rescue Tubes life-saving project.

WEST MAUI – The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset is inviting the public to attend the club’s third annual “Celebrations” meeting on Tuesday, July 30.

This virtual Zoom meeting will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

The agenda will feature a number of celebratory presentations.

The club has submitted narratives for the Rotary District 5000 District Governor’s Citation, which will be announced later this summer.

Narratives were submitted for consideration in the areas of Club Service, Youth Service, International Service, Community Service, Vocational Service and Public Image.

A slide presentation and brief explanations of the activities in each area of service will be featured during the virtual meeting.

The meeting will also feature the presentation of the club’s annual Vocational Service Awards.

This year, the club decided to offer three Business Vocational Service Awards that will be unveiled at the virtual meeting.

Representatives from each of these three places of business will be on hand to explain how they have provided outstanding service to the West Maui community.

This meeting will recognize the recipients of the two “Go for the Green” $2,500 college scholarships and the Hawaii Rotary Youth Foundation $5,000 college scholarship.

The two recipients and their parents will be on the screen to share their plans for their college education.

Also, Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset President Heidi Dollinger will be presenting special awards to club members who were selected as The Quiet Rotarian, The Rotary Spirit Award and the Avenues of Service Citation.

The names of the honorees are kept secret until this evening event.

According to Dollinger, “Community members are welcome to join us on this special evening and learn about all the great things our club has accomplished.

“‘Rotary Connects the World’ was the Rotary International theme for this past year. We are inspired by all of our members and volunteers who have given their time and talent to make a difference, and we welcome friends, family, visitors and new prospective members and leaders who are interested in becoming involved,” she continued.

“Even though we are meeting virtually, we continue to provide service to our local community. Come see what we have done to help our local and international communities.”

Club members will receive an automatic invitation to this Zoom meeting. If a guest would like to join this virtual meeting of the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset, contact Past President Mariko Higashi at marikoinmaui@gmail.com to be included on the invite list.
