Hope you’re all getting some rest from an action packed three day weekend. Mahalo Nui to Melann, Linda, Pauline, Marty, Marion, Sandy, Kimo, Lynnette, Susan, Wally, Nohea, Lois, Carolyn, Charlotte, and all the others that helped make the Kaiser BBQ, Joe’s Home Coming, Saturday Kanikapila and the Elks Veteran Dinner such successful and fun events! So this week we’re taking it a little easy by congregating at the UFOHQ for our Friday (7-10p, Potluck, Bring Aloha, yada, yada) and Saturday Kanikapila (2-4p, Yada, Yada) . Sorry, still a little tired from hauling a 900 pounds of gear last week . . .

Heaven’s dark fabric,
Light from a million years past,
A veiled Moon rises . . .
Hope you’re all keeping warm and dry out there. I want to send a Mahalo Nui Loa to Rev. Chip for hosting us last Friday. Always such a pleasure to play the Great (Campbell) Hall. Click below for image album.
We have busy weekend coming up, starting with a call for Kokua (Help) from Joe Tato for the following events. Please contact Joe if you’re up for lending a hand with any of the events:
Volunteers Needed Kaiser BBQ North Bay Fires
We are thanking all the staff, doctors, nurses, assistants, janitors, security, everybody for their hard work during the North Bay Fires.
We will be serving lunch for 600 Kaiser Employees.
If you are free to volunteer for any portion between 9:00 am – 3:00 pm on Friday, November 10th we could really use your help!

Welcome our very own, District Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler, Joe Tato back to his own lodge. We are celebrating his ‘whirlwind’ trip around the district to visit and experience each of the other 8 lodges in the Great Northwest District!
In usual Joe fashion, there will be a huge feast, complete with Ukulele music (that would be US!) and entertainment.
MENU: Osso Bucco
Also *fish or vegetarian with RSVP request
Below are images from last Saturday’s Kanikapila, small, but intimate group. We’ll be meeting at UFOHQ for our usual Saturday 2-4 pm Kanikapila . . .
. . . however Joe has asked if we could play at the following event for their evening dinner (5-8 pm, Dinner 7:30ish). . . Btw, It’s a Free Dinner for ALL Veterans (Elks and Non-Elks). Otherwise a Dinner (Pot Roast, Mashed Taters, veggies) is available for $11 (11/11/2017). Hope we see you there, if not for Dinner to help entertain our Veterans.
Ok, time to get ready for another action packed weekend!
