Mahalo to Prince Kuhio! * Hoʻomau! Anahola Community Workdays
Aloha and mahalo for being willing to help us malama our ʻāina in Anahola! These 2 days of clean up are dedicated to Prince Johah Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole Piʻikoi. As kanaka maoli, we want to show our thankfulness for what Prince Kūhiō fought so hard for on our behalf and the important role he played in Hawaiian history.
Trucks and trailers will be most helpful on both days and someone to help load the chipper will help us accomplish opening spaces for families to enjoy in the future.
Check in will be at the tent area near the YELLOW GATE on KUKUIHALE ROAD in Anahola.
DATE / TIME...
DAY 1 - Friday, March 25 - Prince Kuhio Day @ 8am - Noon
We will focus on using 3 excavators to continue removing abandoned vehicles and clearing some areas for possible camping sites.
