The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset invites Maui residents and visitors to join an Earth Day beach cleanup on Wednesday, April 22, from 5 to 6 p.m.

Community volunteers will meet at 5 p.m. at the Lahaina Jodo Mission parking area, 12 Ala Moana Street in Lahaina.

Teams of volunteers will clean the beach, working south from the mission.

The club will provide trash collection bags, plastic gloves and bottled water for volunteers.


“This Earth Day beach cleanup gives those who are concerned about the environment an opportunity to pitch in and do something positive”, said Liz May, co-president of the Lahaina Sunset Rotary Club. “It’s part of our club’s ‘Go Green, Keep the Island Clean’ initiative.”


To ensure ample supplies are on-hand for the cleanup, volunteers are asked to register by calling Rotary Lahaina Sunset Club Co-President Jim Fahnestock at (808) 214-5282.
