Aloha All,

Hula Mai will be joining us and providing refreshments and snacks for a fee. Mahalo Nui to Dorothy and the Sonoma Valley Wahine for the invite!

Napa Porchfest . . .

Some of you may recall that I announced our invitation to perform at the Napa Porchfest on July 31st.

For those of you interested, here’s a link to to the 2022 Porchfest T-Shirts. Pre-order now to save a few $$$. They charge $8 for shipping or if you’re interested, and can place your order within the coming week, Carolyn has volunteered to do ONE pickup run for the ‘Ohana. Email me your T-Shirt order receipts. I will gather them up and forward them to Carolyn. So get your order in ASAP or pay the $8 in shipping. Mahalo Carolyn!

Vanikapila 23.22 . . .

We had a great turn out this past Saturday’s Vani/Kanikapila. Great weather, Hulas (even a special one from Amy), and even a little Martian dust devil to re-arrange the umbrellas. Fortunately no one was injured and in true UFOhana spirit we Kanikapila’d On!

Mahalo to all that attended, braved the dust storm, and shared their aloha. Mahalo to Nohea for providing the Birthday Chocolate Mousse/Cheese/yummy thingy Cake.

County Fair Update:

It’s getting close folks . . .

The tickets and Song Book for the July 2nd event are now available for pickup at Vendola Café for all those that have RSVP’d for the event. Please call Nohea (Linda) at 415-572-1175 to schedule a pickup time.

If you haven’t RSVP’d, you’re welcome to attend but you’ll need to purchase your own ticket and because of limited space on the stage you’ll need to participate from the audience.

I explained the concept of a “Kanikapila” to the County Cultural Center folks. As a result, they are encouraging attendees to bring their own Ukuleles, if they wish, so they can participate in our Kanikapila. Is that cool or what? Of course, we will be providing song books for the audience.

Stay tuned for more details.

Ok, that all I have for now.

Mahalo, again, for all your well wishes and healing words through my difficult time.


a circle of friends,
what we know as ‘Ohana,
sum of Aloha.

Aloha A Hui Hou,


Anybody seen Sandy’s Keys . . .
