Breaking Ground on a New Life

“I’ve been renting every year since I was 18 when my father kicked me out of the house,” joked Gayla Haliniak-Lloyd. But breaking ground was more than just a light-hearted ceremony for the Haliniak-Lloyd family who gathered around the site of their future home last Saturday.

The Hawaiian homes lot, in the new Kalamaula subdivision, overlooks the historic Kapuaiwa Grove and provides an expansive view of Lanai, Maui and the Kaunakakai pier.

People wanting to get involved can do so in a number of ways. Cash donations can be made at Molokai Furniture in Kualapu`u Center and at the West End Sundries at Kaluakoi. Volunteers can also show up on the day of the Build-a-thon as a team or by themselves and are invited to bring in pledge donations. Volunteers do not need to have any building skills.

The Build-a-thon event takes place this Saturday, June 16, 2007, 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. at Ho’omalu Drive in Kalamaula, Mauka (Up the road across from the Coconut grove). See you there!
