Sherri Dodson presents Habitat for Humanity Information
We welcomed Sherri Dodson, Executive Director from Habitat for Humanity as our speaker at our meeting on Tuesday, November 2nd.  Sherri shared great information about the organization and the plans for building homes in West Maui.  After an informative video about the organization and talking about how they purchase land to build homes, she answered numerous questions about how we can assist in this effort.  
We also learned during Happy/Sad Dollars that Past President Sandy Schneider will be leaving our club as she is relocating to Orlando, Florida for a new employment opportunity.  Sandy is currently serving as Community Service Chair and we are now seeking a member to take over this position.  Sandy will leave a big "puka" to fill - she will be greatly missed by all of us.
We also learned that the Kihei Elementary School Student Council Pennies for Polio Drive generated $1460 in funds.  Six classes topped the $100 mark in donations.  Members Phylecia Platte and Joanne Laird "burned out" a number of CoinStar machines around Maui getting all those coins counted.  One-fourth of the funds will go to Kihei Student Council for future projects.  The remainder will be given to our club for the End Polio Now Effort; this contribution takes us well past the $2650 each club is asked to contribute.  
At the end of the meeting President Melissa asked members for ideas for our monthly socials.  Many new locations and ideas were shared and we are looking forward to new and exciting locales to gather together for food, fun and networking.
