Sorry for all the confusing posts as of late. Something happened to the blog. Looks like my provider had restored an old copy after an update went bad. Anyway, I’m hoping this will put us back on track. Thanks to Allan Goodman for pointing out the problem.
So, Friday we’ll be at Campbell Hall, BYPotluck and BYOMusicGear, I can sure use help with setting up chairs and tables if anyone’s available. We should be there around 5:45PM or so, much appreciated. Mahalo Nui Loa to Reverend Chip for hosting us once again!
I also want to say Mahalo Nui Loa to all for your Birthday Gifts and Hauoli La Hanau wishes and to my Ukulele Sister Charlotte, hope you had a Happiest of Birthdays and Mahalo! I am so blessed to have such a wonderful ‘Ohana, you warm my heart.

Please forward to our community as we are searching for 50+ volunteers for this historic 2-day event. ~ Mahalo!
