This past Saturday, Rotary Club of North Hawaii partnered with Starbucks Waimea to clean-up the building and grounds of the Waimea Preservation Assocation. Headquartered on Mamalahoa Highway and Kawaihae Road, two doors over from the Fire House Gallery, the WPA hosts community events (Father's Day Fun Run), boasts an open membership (free in 2017!), and toasts Waimea town's culture and heritage.
 
The Waimea Preservation Association's archive includes maps, interviews, and photographs of old Waimea. The WPA hopes to work with local high-schools to digitally archive these materials. To learn about the archive and documentation efforts, please contact WPA President Bill Sanborn via jbillsanborn@gmail.com.
 
Mahalo to Starbucks Waimea!

Is it the truth?

Is it fair to all concerned?

Will it build good will and better friendships?

Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
