The Kiwanis Club of the Valley Isle and its partners celebrated the Keiki on Saturday, April 14, 2018. The Keiki Fest is an annual Kiwanis One Day event, celebrating the “Month of the Young Child,” held at the Great Lawn of the University of Hawaii-Maui College. This highly successful Keiki Fest offered a fun, educational, and family-friendly community event that drew people from all over the island. This event promotes a positive, safe and healthy environment for Maui’s Keiki. It is a fun-filled family event with FREE games, prizes, Keiki I.D., jumping castles, children’s activities and entertainment. Low cost food was available for purchase and there were lots of vendors with Keiki related items and many non-profit organizations. Selected children had the opportunity to participate in the Bike Safety program to learn and practice safe bicycling skills ending with a drawing for free bikes for the participants.
This fundraiser is in partnership with the 4-H Clubs of Maui, County of Maui-Department of Parks and Recreation, Boys and Girls Clubs of Maui, and the University of Hawaii—Maui College, with support from many Maui businesses.
Great job, Valley Isle Kiwanians, Co-Chairs Jan Shishido and Shari Yamamoto, Vanessa, Marc, Region 18 Trustee John Buck, Lt. Gov. Roy and Audrey Kagawa, and all the other Maui Kiwanis clubs and SLPs that were involved!
