The Annual Easter Egg Hunt organized by our Kupuna volunteers included Face Painting, a Matching-Ducky memory game, Spoon race, Wheel of Fortune, Ring toss, Bean bag cover up and story telling. Keiki scour the pool area for eggs filled with prizes and treats while parents and members cheer them on.
During March two more of our Elks Kupuna shared their stories on Olelo TV. Our own Emmy Lou Armstrong and Bernadette “Bun- nie” Takahashi recalled their memories during interviews which were aired ten times during March.
As part of our plans for the new Elk year, we look forward to taping more Kupuna Stories to air on Olelo. If you have memories from your childhood and “the way things were”, which you would like to share with the people of Hawaii, please let us know – email to Elk- sKupuna@gmail.com.
This has been an exciting time in the Lodge. Renovations are progressing and we look forward to a beautiful new venue for our own venerated Elks Hawaiian singers to perform on Wednesdays. For those of you who are not familiar with this group of senior Elks member musicians, they are the true soul of old Hawaii. They play and perform Hula for your enjoyment every Wednesday from 10am to 12 ish.
As our lodge renovations get closer to completion, we are working to schedule more fun tours, Informative lectures, fundraising activities, parade participation and more.
The Kupuna Committee meets at the Lodge every second Wednesday of the month at 1 pm All are welcome to attend.
Aloha, Gloria Yau. Chairmanby
