Wishing for Peaceful Sundays

Dear Puako Association,

Our kamaaina family used to own a house down here, but having sold it a few years ago, I now come every winter and rent from a friend. I still receive your newsletters and bulletins, and enjoy so much hearing about this little piece of paradise that i love! Cesspools/septic systems and all!

This is a gentle plea to homeowners: PLEASE consider not having your yard workers come on Sundays! There is a house across the street from me whose yard person arrives every Sunday morning, and uses his leafblower for nearly an hour! I literally have to leave the house to get away from the noise. Then today (Sunday), the neighbor next to that house started up their blower, thankfully for only about 20 minutes. I have neighbors who work all week, and they don’t enjoy it any more than i do. Absentee owners may not even be aware of when their workers come. Please, it would make it so much more peaceful, if only for one day a week!

Keep up the good work, and continue to protect this special place on earth.

Aloha nui,
Maggie Woods
