Tannis Grimes has been volunteering with the Haku Baldwin Center’s Therapeutic Riding Program for the past nine years, supporting the development of Maui’s special needs keiki. Twice every week, Aunty Tannis works with the children and horses, both as the center’s “Official Hoop Fairy,” who sets up games played on horseback, and the center’s “Official Poop Fairy,” who cleans up the arena afterward. No matter what the task, Tannis works with purpose and a sense of humor. The children all look forward to working with her, and she is wonderful with the horses. Tannis has donated over 900 hours of her time to Haku Baldwin Center, making her one of this organization’s longest-serving volunteers, and true Volunteer Hero.
