7 AM - 12 Noon
Chairman, Eddie Sarita

Hawaii's balmy weather prevailed and 77-some volunteers spruced up Hanama`ulu Beach Park trimming trees, weed wacking, cutting grass; painting picnic tables, pavilion walls, & restrooms; spray painting the eaves and ceiling of the pavilion, raking, and hauling green waste to the transfer station at Ahukini.  

The volunteers who made the cleanup possible included the Alii Motorcylce Club, Hanama`ulu Neighborhood Association and other Hanama`ulu residents, Kapaa Missionary Church, Kaua`i Drug Court, Kaua`i Police Dept., Kaua`i Visayan Club, Koa Puna Motorcycle Club,PIHI (Philippine Island Hawaii Island) Cycling Club, and other volunteers from around the island.

Cleanup Saturday was a glorious day!

Grandmas, Moms, and young ones helped!

Hanama`ulu Beach Park Workday Set

Letter from Eddie Sarita (346-0090, eddiesarita@hotmail.com)  
Posted March 10, 2011

Aloha All:

In order to provide all of you with as much advance notice as possible, please be advised of the upcoming Hanama`ulu Beach Park Cleanup Workday scheduled as follows:


Date:  Saturday, April 16, 2011

Time Start:  7 am

Time End:  12 noon

Location:  Hanama`ulu Beach Park 

The project will involve clearing and removal of overgrowth & bushes, general landscaping work, pressure washing of all concrete floors and walkways and painting of the interiors of the new pavilion, two restrooms and all picnic tables.  We may also  do demolition of the old termite-eaten shower stall by the old pavilion.  


I have contacted the Kauai Drug Court, Capt. Sherwin Perez and his police volunteers and the two motorcycle clubs that use the park occasionally.  Dale will do the Oeanic TV listing for the event; I have a Public Service Announcement about the project ready to be delivered or emailed to KONG Radio and FM97 Radio.  The county will also do a press release and will close the park from April 11 thru April 23.  I will also contact Dennis Fujimoto of the Garden Island and ask him to write something about the project to invite volunteers.  Dale will also be mailing a letter signed by Neil to Janie Whitehead, Manager of Wal-Mart, to ask their employees to participate.  All of this will be done over the next few weeks and not all at once.  We will also write to or contact other organizations to tell about the project and to ask for volunteers.  If we can get 40 - 50 volunteers to help, that should be enough.

Neil is working with the manager of the Kauai Beach Resort to provide lunch for the volunteers.  We will have bottled water and soda for refreshments.


I am humbly asking each of you to set aside April 16 and come out to help.  It is a sacrifice, I know, but a very worthwhile one.  We are also encouraging those who can, to bring weedeaters, chain saws, lawn mowers and other small equipment to get the work done easier and faster.  The Kauai Drug Court volunteers will do their assignment on Thursday and/or Friday which will be to collect trash from both sides of Hehi Road down to the park, pick up trash along the beach and do pressure-washing.  


I have been advised that any long-term homeless people have been asked to leave and all their rubbish removed and disposed.  The police and park rangers will ensure that they do not return.


You can help by spreading the word and asking those you know to come and help.  Please let me know if you have anyone committing because I need a headcount for food and refreshment purposes.


The last time we performed a cleanup at the beach park was in March 2008;  three years ago!


Thank you all for your dedication, help and for being members of the best association on Kaua`i.
