Rotary Club of Kahului Presents The

2016 Michael H. Lyons Palaka Award To:


 Dorothy “Honey Bun” Haynes





Honey Bun, affectionately called by most, has dedicated most of her time and support to many non-profit organizations on Maui that helps to better the Maui community in health, education and arts. Honey Bun epitomizes the community spirit of Mike Lyons and exemplifies the highest ideals of volunteer service to our non-profit community and to the Rotary motto “Service Above Self.”


 From the inception of the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s fundraising vision in 1985 to the elegant and refreshingly Maui Calls event that is today, Honey Bun has been the leading force in garnering in support from the community to build a gathering place for the arts.


 Honey Bun’s philanthropic outreach doesn’t stop at the MACC.  Her love for the community extends to many institutions and organizations: Haleakala Waldorf School, Maui Food Bank, Kula Hospital Auxilary, Maui Historical Society, Hui No’eau Visual Arts Center and so much more.


 The Palaka Award recognizes outstanding long-term, substantial volunteer service to Maui County nonprofit organizations.  Created in honor of Mike's tireless community support, the award is named for the signature palaka shirts he wore.
