As I mentioned last week, we’re moving our Friday Kanikapila (for just this week only) to Saturday evening . . . see below for details:
Moving our June 26th Fancy Dinner Night Kanikapila to Saturday the 27th. It’s a kind of an important night honoring Joe Tato, who’s been elected State VP for our Elk’s District, at an Elks event called a “Homecoming”. Joe has been traveling to other Elks Lodges, performing audits, throughout the US. The 27th marks the end of his trips, hence the “Homecoming”. I understand that there will be visiting Elks dignitaries that night as well.
Social Hour starts at 5pm (spam musubi pupus). Dinner at 6pm. Menu is as follows:
Appetizers to Start. Main course: Huli Huli Chicken or Red Snapper, Shoyu Butter Shiitake Sauce. Cost $15. We’ll probably start playing around 6:45pm, just enough time for most of us to get back from Sonoma . . .
Please RSVP as soon as possible with firstname.lastname@example.org IF YOU WILL BE ATTENDING JUST TO KANIKAPILA, AND/OR IF YOU WILL BE PURCHASING A DINNER. Joe is also asking for a head count even if you won’t be having dinner. He want’s to make sure there are enough tables and chairs put out to accommodate all of us. Again, please email email@example.com , or Tad Inouye at firstname.lastname@example.org or me at email@example.com .
Mahalo Nui Loa to the San Rafael Elks for allowing us to participate in this important Elks event and congratulations to Joe Tato on his election and achievements.
Here are the images from last Fridays Kanikapila at UFOHQ . . . click the collages to access the photo album . . .
You’ll see from the Album that there was no shortage of Hula this past Friday. Mahalo Nui to all the dancers for sharing their beautiful dances with us. Also, take note of Nohea’s beautiful hair pieces (on sale now at a UFO HQ near you)!
Here are images from Hula Mai’s 2015 Ho’oike where Mary, Sandy, Kimo Kanahele and myself participated as band members . . . Mahalo to Betty Ann Bruno for allowing us to share in this wonderful event. The Mayor of Sonoma even blew the Pu (Conch Shell) for the opening!
Saturday Kanikapila, June 27th, we’re meeting at the Sonoma Valley Woman’s Club, 2p – 4p. Mahalo Nui to the SVWC for hosting us once again! As you can see we’ve got a double helping of Kanikapila on Saturday, 1st at the SVWC and then at the Elks. I hope to see you at one or maybe even both!
Hearts beating as one,
Halau dancing for pure joy,
Aloha to all.
OK, DON’T FORGET TO RSVP FOR FRIDAY NIGHT IF YOU WILL BE ATTENDING AND WHETHER OR NOT YOU’LL BE NEEDING A DINNER! The Elks need a head count for seating and for planning for dinner. Mahalo.
