Well, here we are staring down hump day (my apologies to any camels out there) . . . hope you’ve all been enjoy this untimely wonderful weather. But do remember to conserve water now, I have we’re in for a “hot one” come summer.
We’ll be at the Elks this Friday, in Da’ Bar. BYOGear (book lights and music stands), as usual an Ono-licious (pidgin for Yummy Food) dinner will be provided by Elks for a nominal fee, and as always, BYAloha to share with each other and the Elk members. Our Mahalos to the Elks (Joe, Tad, Sarah, Karin, Mike, Stuart, Dennis, Monica and the many others) for once again opening your doors to the UFOhana. Also, want to pass this fun fundraising event from Elks, happening this Saturday:

****ATTENTION ALL: UFOhana Pilot In Need of TLC ****
Please send your warmest Alohas and plenty of good mana to Ralph, Charlene, and of course Lulu. Ralph is currently recovering from heart surgery. That’s Ralph and Lulu on the left . . . Get well soon Ralph!
Mahalo to Betty Ann Bruno’s Halau and to the UFOhana members that managed to attend last week’s Red & White Kanikapila. You all made it a very joyous and happy event. Nohea and I hope to share many more with you all. Click the collage below to view the album of images.
As you can see from the album it was a night of great food, friends, hula and of course, music. Then we got to do it again at the Sleeping lady…. woof!
It was the afternoon of the Harp Players (no less than three, we missed you Rick!) . . . and Kazoo-ers?
Btw, for those of you interested I will be holding an Ukulele Workshop March 8th, Sunday, 10a – 12p, at UFOHQ. Cost is $25, which includes a manual. We’ll go over some basic ukulele concepts, basic strumming techniques, tab basics, and riffs from some our our UFOhana favorites. Please RSVP with Kaleikoa@piko.ws if you’re interested.
*****SPECIAL EVENT AT CAMPBELL HALL*****
Also, for those of you interested, Reverend Chip (our host at the Campbell Hall), is offering up this special event below. He’s also putting out a invitation to any Ukulele Players interested in performing prior to the event that day. Please email me at Kaleikoa@piko.ws if you’re interested and I’ll put you in touch with Reverend Chip.
Ok, I think that’s all I have for now . . .
Though we all will pass,
And the wall of time runs wide,
All hearts join as one.
Hope to see you all this Friday at the Elks!
