I know it is not January 1st , but it is the start of a new Rotary Year. My name is Dennis Bagshaw, and I am the 2020/2021 President of the Rotary Club of Kihei Wailea. Our New Year begins under a cloud of sorts. The pandemic that has been sweeping the nation, has affected us all. And our Rotary Clubs are no exception. No face to face meetings, no shaking hands or giving hugs when we see our Rotary friends, no fun gatherings. We are all missing those things.

But there is a silver lining within this cloud. ZOOM! Something that was familiar to some, and a foreign language to others. I for one had never heard of ZOOM until we started using it for our meetings. And talk about a “Silver Lining”. The format has allowed us to stay connected, no matter where we are located. We are enjoying a freedom we just did not have before. We are able to have guest speakers from all over the world.

At some point, although there will be some changes, we will return to the face to face meetings. But we will continue using Zoom to connect and reach out to those who cannot be with us. The Rotary Club of Kihei Wailea would like to invite you to attend a meeting. See what Rotary is about. If you are interested, or would like more information, I can be reached at President@RCKW.org.


 The Rotary Club of Kihei-Wailea Mission Statement:

"In the spirit of the Rotary Four-Way Test, strive to improve the lives, health, and well-being of citizens (with a special emphasis on children) in our community and that of underprivileged communities around the world. Achieve meaningful results for our service projects in an atmosphere of fun, fellowship, and aloha."

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.
