Upcountry History Meeting - Wed, Feb. 20
The Kula Community Association welcomes all Maui residents to our community meeting in the Kula Community Center from 7pm to 9pm this coming Wednesday, February 20. Join your neighbors from 6:30pm for refreshments, as well as a display of the proposed new Kula Park playground structure presented by Michael Silva, VP of Fukumoto Engineering.
Paraphrasing the old nursery rhyme, “Jack and Jill are coming up the Hill”, not to fetch a pail of water, but to help residents learn many things about Upcountry Maui’s history. Dr. “Jack” Lewin and “Jill” Engledow will provide us with interesting history lessons of the Upcountry area.
Dr. Lewin was for many years the Kula Hospital doctor before becoming Hawaii’s Director of Health. Jill Engledow has written numerous books about Maui, including Historic Upcountry and Haleakala, a History of the Maui Mountain. Utilizing a PowerPoint format, Jill will be telling the story of Haleakala and its history.
Pastor Heather Mueller, a founding member of the Kula Community Association, will describe the early history of the Association as it struggled with controversies over the future direction of Kula Hospital.
At the meeting, there will be an opportunity for Kula residents to make suggestions for the upcoming County budget, as it relates to Kula’s needs. The KCA Board is seeking this community input, as it prepares its testimony on our community’s priorities for the County Council’s Budget Committee. For more information: 283-4376
