To recognize outstanding long-term volunteer service to nonprofit organizations, the Rotary Club of Kahului has revived the Michael H. Lyons II Palaka Award.  Created in honor of Mike’s tireless community support, the award is named for the signature palaka shirts he wore.

We will recognize our 2012 finalists and announce the 2012 Palaka Award winner at the King Kamehameha Golf Club during a special luncheon on Friday, August 24.  Nominees for the award exemplify the highest ideals of volunteer service to a nonprofit organization.
