West Maui Rotarians want to meet new friends

By Staff | Nov 13, 2014

Have you ever thought about joining a Rotary club or attending a meeting to see what this community service organization is all about?

Maui residents are invited to attend a “Friend-Raiser” hosted by the three West Maui Rotary clubs on Wednesday, Nov. 19, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Royal Lahaina Resort.

The clubs will provide free pupus, and there will be a no-host bar with happy hour prices until 6 p.m.

West Maui’s three clubs – the Rotary Club of Lahaina, Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise and new Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset – are part of the global network of 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and territories, including ten clubs on the Valley Isle.

“Our goal is to meet some new friends,” said Liz May, co-president of the Lahaina Sunset Rotary Club. “And to thank those who’ve done so much to help Rotary serve the community in West Maui.”

“The beach cleanup hosted recently by our three clubs demonstrated the aloha spirit of this community,” added “Skeeter” Stebbins, president of the Lahaina Sunrise Rotary Club. “Residents are looking for ways to give back to this community.”

Mila Salvador, president of the Lahaina Rotary Club, noted, “In Rotary, we believe many hands make light work. Rotary members gladly volunteer our time, and we always get back more than we give.”

With a motto of “Service Above Self,” the West Side’s three clubs do great work in the community, mentoring youth, awarding scholarships, participating in improvement projects and staging fundraisers.

With meetings now held morning, lunch time and evening, there’s a club to fit any schedule.

To attend the “Friend-Raiser” and learn more about Rotary, call Rotary Lahaina Sunset Co-president Jim Fahnestock at (808) 214-5282.
