Bring your Flight Manuals, BYOG, Sun Screen and maybe bring a little something to add to He’e Nalu’s Potluck if you’ll be joining us for Lunch.

Mahalo Nui to Napili Bob and He’e Nalu for inviting us to participate in this opening season event that is so much a part of the Hawaiian culture. I understand that Kumu Lynn Roth will be presiding at the ceremonies again this year.
