As glasses are raised and fireworks explode into the sky, it is important to recognize the special symbolism the New Year brings. The New Year should speak to new beginnings and fresh starts, as well as a time of reflection. Whether your New Year resolutions consist of keeping your hands out of the cookie jar or giving your heartfelt word to work on relationships with loved ones, it can take a lot of effort.
For Rotarians, the New Year should be a time to re-commit to the community and the “Service Above Self” attitude that is the backbone of Rotary Clubs and their members worldwide.
The Rotary Club of Kihei Wailea is known in the District as a can-do club.  We need to continue striving to enforce that can-do attitude through projects in the community, schools, our District, and Rotary International.
Get involved!  Is there a project you think would benefit the community?  Many projects do not need money to accomplish positive results.  Sometimes it just takes folks working together and moving towards a common goal. Get Involved! And have fun while you are doing it.  Rotary is not a job.  We are all volunteers.  Having fun and getting things done in 21 should be our slogan. 
So, Let’s “Have Fun Getting Things Done in ‘21”
If you are interested in learning more about the Rotary Club of Kihei Wailea, or Rotary in general, ask a Rotarian.  Or, I can be reached at the email address below.

We train 3 Orthopedic surgeons in the Pediatric sub-specialty who will start their own training site
Initiated by Pediatric Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Mark Barry from Rotary Club of Kihei-Wailea (RCKW) on Maui. RCKW has partnered with RC Honolulu Sunrise, District 5000 and the Rotary Foundation to support this unique surgeon training initiative at Muhimbili Orthopaedic Institute (MOI) in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. The host is Rotary Club of Oyster Bay in Dar Es Salaam. A Vocational Training Team (VTT) Grant was secured to sequentially bring five Pediatric Orthopedic surgeons from the United States for 3-4 weeks at a time to train 3 top local MOI surgeons in the sub-specialty of Children’s Orthopedics. This is the 5 month final stretch of a 2 year formal fellowship training program at MOI. Upon completion, these will be the only formally trained Pediatric Orthopedic surgeons in Tanzania, a country of 55 million, where half the population is below 18 years of age. The fellows plan to establish the first permanent “Center of Training Excellence” in Pediatric Orthopedics in east, central and southern Africa.
