One of Maui's Landmarks

Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. (HC & S). Each time I passed this place I kept telling myself to to stop and take a picture. Today I finally did.

I think this is the last sugar refinery in Hawaii. I hope it will not take the same path as that of Maui Land and Pineapple Inc. where I retired from. As I took this picture it saddened me that I failed to take one last picture of the Pineapple Cannery before they close it down. When I retired in 2003 they had over 1600 employees. Today I heard they only have 25 people working there and the company may not even survive the next two years. Very sad indeed.
