Q2 2021 No Ka Oi Highway Hui Award Recipient: Notestone Crew

When Hana resident Gale Notestone signed up to become an Adopt-A-Highway volunteer more than 20 years ago, his children were “young and small.” Today, they’re grown up and ready to take over what has now become a multigenerational family commitment. The Notestone Crew’s longevity is one of the reasons the group was selected to receive the No Ka Oi Highway Hui Award from the State of Hawaii, Department of Transportation, Highways Division – Maui District (HWY-M). The Notestone Crew typically has six volunteers at each of their cleanups. Most are family members, joined by neighbors and friends from the Hana area. The group recently renewed their Adopt-A-Highway agreement with HWY-M, with Gale’s son Micah Notestone taking over as their lead Adopt-A-Highway volunteer.
