Rotary Club of Pearlridge, Navy, community volunteers come together to spruce up Waiau Elementary School |

Mahalo to Senator Bennette Misalucha who again organized last Saturday’s annual beautification project at seven schools in the Pearl City and Aiea complex. Mary Villamil and I volunteered alongside other Rotary Club of Pearlridge community volunteers led by RCOP President Dick Mosko at Waiau Elementary School in Pearl City.

On Saturday, volunteers who also represented the Navy, the Pearl Harbor Rotary Club and other community volunteers and their ohana, helped stencil the official Waiau Dolphins Elementary School logo on the sidewalks for safe social distancing . Volunteers and school maintenance staff also beautified the administration building and school entrance lot, as well as the sidewalks and parking lot curbs by removing invasive grass and weeds.

Mahalo to Waiau Elementary Principal Troy Takazono and Deputy Principal Kim Koga for providing volunteers with work supplies and morning snacks and beverages to get us started, as well as hot pizza for lunch once the work is finished.

Mahalo to Senator Misalucha, staff member Bernie Caalim and everyone who volunteered their time on Saturday to spruce up Waiau Elementary School as the school prepares to welcome back students, teachers and staff to a few weeks.

Have a wonderful week!
