KANEʻOHE— In the spirit of giving, over one weekend, members of the Rotary Club of Kaneʻohe demolished the old bus shelter at Windward Community College and constructed a new one, complete with composite roof to mimic the orange-tiled roofs of campus buildings.

"I was absolutely amazed to see such a wonderful new bus shelter for our students completed in just two days," said Chancellor Angela Meixell. "Not only do students have a dry place to wait for the bus, but the design is in keeping with our campus buildings. I would like to extend a heartfelt mahalo to the Rotary Club of Kaneʻohe for this wonderful gift for our students, and our community."

Club members who worked on the project included Dennis Irie, Pete Dyer, Hank Iida, Dwight Kauahikaua, Clyde Morita, Guy Nishizawa, Gavin Nishizawa (Guy's Son), John Parker, Kathy Raethel, Ron Sauder, Pete Seymour, Tom Slavens, Kiha Tirrell, Richard Yokoyama, Alan Zane, and Tom Teruya. Dennis Irie was also the architect on the project.

Employees from T. Iida Contracting, Ltd, who played an important role in the completion of the project, included Nathan Kimura, Jonathan Iida, Troy Oshiro and Lester Azama.
