A Celebration of Life will be held today, Sunday, Oct. 2, for Mark Sheehan, founding board member of Maui Tomorrow.
The gathering includes a potluck at 2 p.m., filled by a sunset ceremony starting at 4 p.m. at Mākena State Park’s “Third Entrance” at the end of Oneloa “Big” Beach.
There will be a kūpuna drop off area after 3rd driveway by the houses. Signs will be posted.
Guests are asked to carpool as parking is limited.
“The creation of the 155-acre Mākena State Park, where luxury condos were once planned, is one of the many successful examples of a sustained community effort in which Mark Sheehan played a key role,” according to a Maui Tomorrow announcement.
