Message from Rev. Richard Tennes – “Finding Our Way”
Located in KHM Blog


It is with great pride that we recognize the 40th anniversary of the Kahului Hongwanji Pre-school.

The child care center was founded by members of the Kahului Hongwanji Mission, in an effort to provide affordable day care for the Maui community. The temple has provided generous support and the staff has built a reputation for excellence. We are humbled and grateful for the decades of unselfish commitment for the children.

As one of our commemorative projects we would like to compile a memory book containing notes and remembrances from families touched by the school. We would especially like to honor the wonderful women, our teachers, who have dedicated their careers to our children. Please drop by a page or two from your family. Please include your names, perhaps something about the school or teachers you remember and also what you are currently doing or what you have done. We are requesting photographs, current and any you might have during the time you attended the school. Please mark the photos so that we may return them to you.

A dinner is planned for October 15 at 5:30pm. We hope that you will join us for this special reunion.

Thank you.

P.S. We could use help in planning and executing this project. If you can help-please contact me.
