Recognizing mothers and students
By Jackie Cushman
You support us and we give it right back! On Mother’s Day, May 8, the Molokai Lions Club hosted their annual breakfast at Paddlers Inn. The location might have changed this year but the support never wavered. The food was excellent. Chef Kamuela, you did yourself proud. Curtis and Sierra you never stopped moving. Mahalo to Lions Darlene Heil, Jylyn Stubbs, PJ and Mark Berfield, Gary Guardino, Rob Stevenson and Mike Jennings.
On May 18, the Molokai Lions Club was present at the annual Recognition Ceremony at Molokai High School. Since 1999, the Lions Club has been awarding two $500 service awards to deserving seniors who have sustained a commitment to public service throughout their high school career. This year’s recipients were Kailana Ritte-Camara and Kawena Puhi. These awards and other events would not be possible without the support of the Molokai community.
The Molokai Lions Club also supports the Molokai High School Leo Club. Lion Darlene Heil is the Lion Liaison working with the Leo Advisor Julia DeGeorge. Together they make it possible for the Leo and Lions to come together, and to help one another in their community service. Following the award ceremony on May 18, the Leos had a lunch for the Lions in Ms. DeGeorge’s room. Mahalo to the Leos for the great food and to the Lions who attended.
