Hahaione Stream Cleanup

Atherton Y Service Club members spent their Saturday morning helping to clean out Hahaione Stream. Members cut invasive grass and removed other vegetation from the stream area. A total of six bags of trash were collected. Stream clean-up projects like this help to prevent debris from collecting and causing floods during heavy rain.

Lei Making

Lei is the symbol of the Aloha Spirit in Hawaii, and a common symbol of love, friendship, celebration, and honor. Members of the Atherton Y Service Club and Atherton YMCA gathered at Atherton YMCA for a lei making event. Leis will be given to participants in their programs. Leis are also available for purchase. Each lei costs $12 each (plus shipping, U.S. only). You may request your two color preferences. Please visit https://ymcacustomlei.funraise.org/ to order.
