121018: Red, Green & Bling Ball at the Elks this Friday!

BOT:

Aloha UFOhana,

In honor of the upcoming Holidays, Nohea is requesting, since everyone did such a great job at the Winter Ball, one more “dress up” event at the Elks this Friday (where we’re meeting ko-inki-dink-ka-li). We’re calling this one the Red, Green & Bling ball. So dress in your finest Reds, Greens and Bling outfits (or not), grab a carriage and trot on down to our favorite Elks Lodge. Oh, don’t forget to BYOGear (Music Stands and Lights), some $$$ for dinner and, of course, some Aloha to go around.

We’re gathering this Friday at our usual time of 7:00pm to 9:00pm-ish. For those interested, dinner will be served at 6:30. Menu is Italian, Justin’s Lasagna (made from scratch). Mahalo Nui to the Elks-ders for hosting us once again.

UFOHQ = SATURDAY KANIKAPILA

Saturday we’re gathering at the UFOHQ 2pm – 4pm. BYOMusicStands, BYOB&S (Beverages and Snacks) and some Holiday Cheer to share with your Ohana. Please text me at 415-300-7804 to RSVP a seat for Saturday.

As many of you may know, last week was a very eventful one. We Kanikapila’d at the Campbell Hall, the Fairfax Christmas Craft Fair and at Gnoss Air Field for their Holiday Dinner. Action packed to say the least!

Ken Mercer, President of the Gnoss Field Community Association, sends the following, ” . . . we had such a blast because of you guys-your upbeat energy was just what this group of old folks needed, and we really appreciate it. Hope you all have a great Christmas season!”

 OK, now THAT was a party! This was our 4th annual GFCA/EAA Chapter 1232/Marin 99s/CAP Squadron 23 Holiday Potluck, and this year we really seemed to have hit on the right combination of friends, food, and family. In this case, “family” was the group Ukelele Friends Ohana, who brought their high-energy, cheery sing along and inclusive Hula dancing. The food and drink was great and since we ran out of chairs we know we had over 64 people on hand at one time.   We sure missed those of you who couldn’t make it, but check out some photos from the event  HERE!

My sincerest thanks to all of you that participated and made these events so special and enjoyable. Nohea and I are so fortunate to have such a fun, caring and supportive ‘Ohana. From us both, “Me ke Aloha Pumehana.”

shining memories return,
a moment recalled.
