Aloha Friends of Akiko & Wailea Village:
I wonder if you remember the first time you noticed this message above the door to the Artist's Studio next to the Garage Gallery entrance? Perhaps you were a first time B&B guest on your way to breakfast from Pu'uhonua or Hale Aloha House, a neighbor on your early morning walk past Akiko's, or a "lost" tourist discovering the quiet charms of Wailea Village after wandering off the Belt Highway in search of Kolekole Beach Park or Akaka Falls?
Our friend Akiko is clearly rooted to the source and living a life of service we all admire. In addition to founding the non-profit Wailea Village Historic Preservation Community (WVHPC) more than 20 years ago her vision, leadership and energy are constantly creating opportunities and inspiration for each of us to be of service, wherever we are, according to our interests and abilities.
The Wailea Village Historic Preservation Community (WVHPC) was formed in 2002 with the mission:
Events initiated and organized through the Community include Cemetery Stewardship, Reviving Hakalau School, almost weekly Senior Luncheons at the Jodo Mission, and the annual Mochi Pounding.
If you're thinking all of this costs money, you're right! Currently, our WVHPC community events are supported entirely by contributions from local friends and former B&B guests from around the world. We have no debt and are working to build our property reserve funds depleted from the purchase of Hale Aloha House in 2013. Please consider joining the Friends of Wailea Village with a tax deductible annual pledge of:
Contact us for free, confidential assistance with planned gifts or bequests of any kind.
With sincere gratitude for your consideration and support.
