Elks Lei Making Contest & Kanikapila

May 24 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm


To all you closet lei makers out there. Charlotte is putting on a lei making contest at this event date and time. Why? Because May Day is Lei in Hawai’i!

Entries will be judged prior to the Kanikapila and winners announced sometime during. Prizes will be awarded.

Please note the following from Charlotte:

3 Prizes ($50 Gift Certificate to Mauna Loa, SOL and Bogie’s Restaurants) to be offered for three categories: Most Hawaiian, Most Creative, Most Beauitiful [Linda A. making signs and has very nice prize ribbons for each category]  See attached poster that will be displayed.
I will also raffle off a Kala Concert Ukulele [without a case]  $5 per raffle ticket.  Ukulele is beginner concert worth about $125.
We will continue to buy another ukulele with the funds and raffle off again at Elks.  *For this winners must be present.
Leis to be entered must be dropped off at Elks for judging on May 24 between 3:30-4;30.  I will be there to receive leis… we have someone from SF judging.  Names of lei makers will be hidden.
We hope to announce 7:45 pm… so I can head home by 8:15 pm.-  lei makers to parade with their leis in the bar; walk around with their leis while select individuals from “band” sings May Day is Lei Day.  [only you and Sandy -and I,  know the song!}
Mahalo — should be a fun, colorful, cultural experience for everyone to learn a little more about Hawaii and what goes on on May 1st every year in Hawaii.  I will give a little history on how it all began.

Mahalo to the Elks for sponsoring this Hawaiian Tradition.

And there you have it. Get your lei strung and turn ’em in!

Btw, a local style dinner will be available for $20 this week. Joe’s cooking up something special!
