Lahaina Hongwanji Aikido Club holds classes

LAHAINA - Aikido is a Japanese martial art that teaches kids self-discipline, self-confidence and how to get along with others in an atmosphere of fun and respect for all. Ki and Aikido training are combined to teach children to utilize their full potential.

By applying the Ki principles, children improve their performance in all of their activities. More importantly, they gain the intangible benefits of having a positive attitude, respect, always doing one's best, being able to calm one's mind, concentration and self-discipline.

Rotarians selling Christmas trees

LAHAINA - Fresh Christmas trees will be arriving at the Lahaina Cannery Mall parking lot on "Black Friday," Nov. 25, the day after Thanksgiving. This annual fundraiser by the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise will raise money to support numerous community service projects in West Maui, including dictionaries for third-graders, support for the West Maui tutoring program and town beautification projects.

The Noble Fir trees are kept in a refrigerated container on the lot, so they remain as fresh as the day they were cut. The large trees, six to seven feet, are $80; wreaths are $25; and there will also be "mini trees" in the two- to three-foot range, perfect for the condo dweller, with prices yet to be determined. Free delivery to any West Maui location from Olowalu to Kapalua is an added bonus.

Opening Day, "Black Friday," and all weekends, tree sales are open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Weekdays, the container is open 3 to 7 p.m. Cash and all credit cards are accepted.

The container of trees has been moved from its previous location next to the highway closer to the ice machine and luau parking. Turn left at the south entrance of the mall, and the new location of the Christmas trees will be visible. There is close and convenient parking, with friendly Rotarians to help you load your vehicle. Look for the banners; trees sell out every year, so come early.

Too busy to stop by the lot? E-mail with your address and contact information, and Rotarians will bring a tree to you.
