Alooooha UFOhana,

Hope you’ve all been enjoying the respite from the hot weather. Though it was pretty warm this week, we did have some really “hot” ukulele events this past week.

Starting with a great outdoor Welcoming dinner for the Elks visiting AVP after which we kanikapila’d the night away. Mahalo nui loa to the Elks for including the UFOhana.

Then Saturday, was Ken’s Concert and Kanikapila at Hale Pendry. What a fantastic event that was. Click below to view the photos and videos from last Saturday. Mahalo nui loa to Carolyn and Ken for putting on such a great event and to all that helped and participated. Please feel free to upload your photos to either of the albums. I’m sure your ‘Ohana would be glad you shared.

So this Saturday we’re back to our regular programming . . .
