Club Stories
On August 9, Micah Ganiron spoke about Malama Mentors, an organization that strives to positively influence elementary school children through life-changing connections with high school mentors. Their missions is To provide supportive high school mentors to every Hawai'i public elementary school student in need of a friend.
 
Born in Hawai'i Kai, Micah goes to Hawaii Kai United Church of Christ where he works with the youth and music ministry there. He connects both of his passions - music and helping the youth -  through teaching ukulele at Kamiloiki Elementary. Graduating from UH Shidler School of Business, his passions has thus extended to Mālama Mentors where he uses his business background to manage and direct the program. Here's Micah playing Hawaii Aloha with Stan and Matt:
 

October 2019

Rotary's long-term, sustained battle against polio has defined our organization for decades. We have a right to be proud of all that we have accomplished through the years.

Our progress is real and noteworthy. In 1988, polio was endemic in 125 countries, with more than 350,000 new cases a year worldwide. Since then, Rotary and our Global Polio Eradication Initiative partners have reduced the incidence of polio by more than 99.9 percent, vaccinated more than 2.5 billion children against the virus, and prevented 18 million cases of paralysis. Over the years, Rotary has helped country after country move into the polio-free column. This includes India, which some considered impossible not long ago. Of the three types of poliovirus, type 2 has been eradicated and type 3 could soon be certified as eradicated. Nigeria has not reported a case of wild poliovirus in nearly three years. If this trend holds, we will be down to just one type of wild poliovirus in only one section of the world, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

There are major challenges in that region. But it is crucial that we remain optimistic. Look at all that we have accomplished so far. This is no time to get discouraged or to think that the task is impossible. We will end polio forever, but only if we remain steadfast and vigilant. World Polio Day is a time for Rotarians from all over the globe to come together, recognize the progress we have made in our fight against polio, and plan the action we must take to end polio forever. The key word is action, because we still have important work to do.

This year, we want to see as many Rotary clubs as possible holding World Polio Day events around the world. Need some ideas? How about organizing a viewing party for friends and club members to watch Rotary's Online Global Update? You could also dedicate a club meeting to World Polio Day or create a fundraising event. Remember, every dollar raised is matched 2-to-1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Once you have created an event, register it at endpolio.org/register-your-event. Then promote it using the World Polio Day toolkit, available at endpolio.org/world-polio-day.

Mark your calendar to tune in to Rotary's World Polio Day Online Global Update on 24 October. This year we will stream our program on Facebook in multiple time zones around the world. Visit the Rotary International Facebook page to RSVP to your region's program. And do not forget to follow the event on social media and share it with your network.

When we reach our goal, polio will become only the second human disease eradicated on the planet, and Rotary will receive international acclaim. But what matters most is the children who will never again have to face this terrible, disabling virus. Rotary must continue to connect the world in the effort toward polio eradication. It is up to us. Let us finish the job.

 

Our club donated $10,000 to the Friends of LHS Music to be used for the Lahainaluna band.  They had a plaque made to hang in the music room as a way to recognize Richard Lyman and WHR for the donation. Richard Lyman was the 1975 David Malo Award recipient and he left our club money in his estate plan.  We paid it forward to LHS, David Malo's Alma marter.
