Hale Makua Make over completed!

 Our Rotary Club of Maui has finished a long project to help the residents at Hale Makua in Kahului have a new fresh updated dining and activity center. Val  and Steve Spence set up a refreshingly lovely color design for the area, and with the help of 2 other local Rotary clubs ( Kahului, and Wailuku who volunteered time) we painted over the old beige walls, and transformed the common and much used area into a vibrant place for the residents to hang out for planned activities, have fellowship, or dine.  
 
Our club then raised $4000.00 to update the needed chairs and delivered them on November 14th to the activity center. One of the ladies there spied the lovely chairs and said, "This will look nice in my room, just take one there now!". We all laughed and were delighted that they made everyone smile, and were appreciated. Here is the hyperlink for the project https://mauinow.com/2019/11/20/rotarians-donate-dining-room-chairs-to-maui-nursing-home/#.XdXBefmM8Zc.emailwith pictures of the finale.....the delivery of the chairs.

Sarah will come to our Rotary Meeting this Wednesday to meet us to say thanks, and talk about students and teachers in need.

We kicked off our July 2019 year of service with a drive to provide much needed school supplies to our Maui Teachers and their students by pairing up with Wishing Well a nonprofit group who collects supplies year round then gives them to teachers who distribute in their class rooms to children in need. Our club started with personal donations and neighborhood drives through "Kula Next Door" whose neighborhoods opened their hearts and sent items through Amazon, or drop offs for the project. A huge amount of supplies was then given to Sarah Sorenson of Wishing Well to distribute to the teachers in need at our schools on this side of the island. Our Rotary club then wrapped up with a collection at Office Max ( many thanks to the great staff there for supporting our Ohana) yesterday August 3rd, and collected more supplies from great hearted people coming to shop. One lovely lady stopped at our table, asked who these supplies were going to and on learning the mission, she softly said...…." I was one of those keiki" and donated a load of supplies....What an example of paying it forward and keeping the goodness rolling for others.
 
We are proud to serve as the Rotary Club of Maui. 
Mahalo to all!!

Hale Makua Paint Day

Posted by Steve Spence on Apr 30, 2018
Hale Makua is a center that serves our whole community and needs our care.  When Maui Club was forming ideas for 2017-2018 projects Anna Mayeda suggested that the center really needed a refresh on the activity rooms.  We decided that new paint and new side chairs would be a great project for our matching grant money.
All the Central Maui clubs put forth the effort to make this happen.  Wailuku club bought all the paint.  Kahului club, Upcountry club, Maui club provided the volunteers brushes, and rollers.
Hale Makua staff did a fantastic job of prepping the large, two room space so Saturday morning April 28  we hit the ground running.
Flatbread pizza donated lunch for the crew.
It from 8 am to 4 pm but it got done!  Great team/community effort.  Here is Doctor B at work.

Thank you to Inez (our newest club member!) and her granddaughter Allyson, Don and Diane, and Robert and his wife.  
With two other volunteers from the community, we managed to fill a good part of Don Reeser's truck with ocean debris and trash picked up along the shoreline.
