The Rotary Club of Hanalei Bay in partnership with the Princeville at Hanalei Community Association are building the state of Hawaii's first Kupuna Place on the island of Kauai. The first essential component, the FitLot® exercise circle has been funded by a grant from AARP®.
The FitLot Outdoor Fitness park is designed for all ages and abilities, FitLot makes the benefits of an indoor facility free and accessible to everyone. A key ingredient to building Kupuna Place, a gathering space for senior fun and activity
Rotarians dig in while Peter and John from FitLot insure everyone's safety
While installing a FitLot exercise system for Kupuna on Kauai's North is good, Rotary had a bigger vision. A fully ADA compliant gathering place with an Aloha Gazebo for classes, dance, yoga, and socializing. Tables, chairs, benches and more all in the gorgeous setting of Prince Albert Park. Help us in building this great resource for Kauai's Kupuna and leave a Legacy to the North Shore of the Garden Island. All Donations made here go directly to this great project which will benefit our elders today and for generations to come!
Our club funded the Hanalei Bucks program to provide financial relief and support for Hanalei merchants impacted by the March 12th, 2021 landslide. We supported 23 merchants.
We directly interacted with many hundreds of members in the community passing out the Hanalei Bucks distributing just under 1,000 $10 certificates
We touched tens of thousands of community members via radio ads, newspaper pieces, and social media shared by the Hawaii Food Bank – Kauai Division, Hanalei Center, and our own.
We also raised about 1,500 pounds of food for the community.
We recently installed an amazing hand-crafted False Kamani table handmade by Rotarian Terry Wells. The table is located inside the Rotary Gazebo which is located within our 1-acre Rotary Park which is located inside the Kilauea Community Agricultural Center. The Kīlauea Community Agricultural Center works to contribute to island food security and to a healthy, stable, balanced local agricultural economy on its 75 acres in Kilauea.
As part of our mission to build out the Rotary Park, we developed the sponsor-a=tree program. For a $250 donation, We'll plant a tree on your behalf along with a plaque honoring a loved one or, whomever you want on a tree in the Rotary Ag Park The tree will have your name tag affixed to the tag naming the common and scientific and Hawaiian names of the plant. Only one patron name will be attached to any one plant. Please join other visitors or fans of the garden to help in this important project. The $250 donation is a commemorative to whoever you designate while supporting the work and mission of the Kilauea Community Agricultural Center.
