Waimea welcomes Roth at free luncheon (June 23)


Mitch Roth, the Deputy Prosecutor running for Hawaii County Prosecutor, will be hosted by Waimea community members 12:30-2 p.m. Saturday, June 23 at an Up-Country Luncheon in the Thelma Parker Gym.

The event, hosted by Waimea community leaders Beth Mehau and Stephanie Lindsey, kicks off with sign-waving in front of the gym from 11 a.m., followed by a lunch in the gym “to meet the man who is working to keep our keiki and families safe and healthy,” Mehau said.

The award-winning video, “Shattered Dreams” – created by Hawaii Island high school student to help prevent underage drinking — will be shown at 2 p.m. The film showing will be hosted by a Waimea youth group that has adopted underage drinking prevention as its mission.

Mitch Roth spearheaded the production of “Shattered Dreams,” amid the heartbreak of young lives destroyed by under-age drinking and driving.

“Mitch has worked tirelessly to close drug houses, curtail domestic violence, promote safe and healthy communities, and pursue criminals such as a serial home invader in Hamakua who was subsequently sentenced to a record 125 years in prison,” Mehau said.

The program is free, though donations are welcome.

For further information, contact Mehau at 887-2289.
