Atherton Y Service Club had a “fall”-tastic Saturday Service Project restoring the Kuliʻouʻou Trailhead with Aloha Tree Alliance. Members transported water jugs up the Kuliʻouʻou trail, where other volunteers watered native plants and filled up a water catchment tank. The September club meeting was held after the service project. Next service project will be at the Kuliʻouʻou Trailhead with Aloha Tree Alliance on October 22. Here are some photos of the club members in action!
