030623: UFOhana 23rd Anniversary & Vanikapila 7.23


Aloha Ahi Ahi UFOhana,

Yes, another year of Kanikapila has passed for the UFOhana. We started UFOhana Kanikapila 23 Years ago on a 2nd Friday in March and was always held in the evening centered around a Pot Luck Dinner. It was a way of “starting the weekend early.” However, because of life, location and COVID issues we moved it to Saturday.

This year we decided to honor the 1st Kanikapila, by celebrating our 23rd anniversary this Second Friday in March with a Pot Luck Dinner at Vendola Café.

As some of you may recall I had mentioned that Nellie Woodard was not doing to well. She passed last week, peacefully, with family and friends at her side.

She was a very kind, gentle soul, that loved to play, sing and hula. A frontier woman of sorts, always quick with a smile . . .

Please keep her and her ‘Ohana in your prayers as our Princess Pupule hulas her way to Heaven. I’m sure Clay and Marion will be greeting her at the gates . . .


fading memories,
flowers spring from heaven’s tears,
as we recall friends.

Aloha oe pupule kamāliʻiwahine,


bye aunty nellie . . .
