The reception, hosted by the County of Maui Department of Parks and Recreation and Lahaina Restoration Foundation, will acknowledge the successful completion of Phase I of the Lahaina Harbor Front Improvement Project, now known as Keawaiki Park.

Mayor Alan Arakawa will be the special guest speaker for the event with a Hawaiian blessing to follow.

Lahaina Restoration Foundation President David Allaire will also summarize the project and acknowledge the people who contributed to making the project a reality.

Conceptual drawings of the next phase of the Lahaina Harbor Front Improvement Project will be on display, and Lahaina Restoration Foundation will kick off its $25,000 fundraising campaign to buy and install a flagpole for the center of the park.


The event is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served.
