Thank You Letters

Hats off to the Grand Wailea Resort front desk employees who devoted their time and hearts on Dec. 26 for the 10,000th day that meals were served at St. Theresa’s church kitchen in Kihei. Hale Kau Kau started serving hot meals once a day to our brothers and sisters on Aug. 11, 1991. It is a great achievement of Hale Kau Kau to do what they’ve been doing. It’s a great motivation to see interested individuals or group of people who want to help serve and unselfishly give their precious time to serving the less fortunate. I hope that more people consider volunteering for this good cause.

I want to say thank you to those families and individuals who every Christmas season give of their time, effort and energy in decorating their homes with lighting displays and other ornamentation for the enjoyment of all that pass by on our daily travels. I specifically want to thank those who live along Makawao Avenue and those who live in Ranch Acres. Over the years, you have brought awe, wonder and joy to three generations of this Tyau family. It is greatly appreciated.

Edith Tyau

The children of Ka Hale A Ke Ola/Hale Makana O Waiale were treated to a holiday fiesta from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Dec. 29 at the Hale Makana ballfield. There was a bouncing castle, water slides and a dunk tank. Pizza and refreshments were served. More than 100 children participated in this event.

Thank you to Councilwoman Alice Lee for her efforts in putting on these festivities. Thank you also to Mel Pomroy, Michele Frasier and all the employees at Kahului Carpet & Drapery for sponsoring this event. Everyone had a good time. Councilwoman Lee found her target at the dunk tank. Happy holidays to all.
