Donny Marya inducted as our 38th member!
At a recent virtual meeting of the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset Donny Marya was inducted as the club’s newest member.  She was inducted into the club by Past District Governor Nalani Flinn; Donny was sponsored by member Rebecca vonBachelle. 
Radesh “Donny” Marya was born and raised in India and came to the United States when she married.  She studied interior design when in university in India. Donny’s husband BK Marya was an electrical engineer and after a few years working he opened his own semiconductor company Catalyst Semiconductor. Donny assisted him with the setup of his start up and was basically a jack-of all-trades helping finding sites for the company, helping getting insurance for families, doing payables and billings, and anything else that needed to be done. 

The Maryas first came to Maui in July 1988 for a vacation and walking off the plane couldn’t believe they had never visited before. They returned in November that year and bought into The Masters in Kaanapali, which was and still is a fabulous property.  Donny always felt sad leaving Maui after the vacations and now, in their retirement, they are spending more and more time on Maui. 

Donny states: “I knew about Rotary but never really knew what they did. I am looking forward to getting more involved with my community all over the world. What we do affects everyone so we need to spread Aloha all over.  Hawaii is an amazing place in the world and I’m so happy that it’s been part of my life and my families lives for so long.”
