The Historical Booth, which occupied the back of the big tent, was ready for visitors at 9 AM. Catherine Lo and her committee -- Karl Lo, Karen Pescador, and Charlene Sarita -- staffed the booth until 7 PM, when they dismantled the exhibit during the Free Bingo & Door Prizes portion of the celebration. With ears and eyes focused on bingo, it was time to pack the 33 pieces of the exhibit, majority of which were in 8.5x11 oak frames. Three of the 33 frames were large, very large, and extra large!

Following the Call to Gather with a shofar and the Invocation by Pastor Lawrence Matsuwaki, the Kauai Filipino Centennial Chorale, under the direction of the Helen Sina, started the 2006 Hanama`ulu Town Celebration on a high note with the renditions of the "National Anthem," "Hawaii Ponoi," and the "Philippine National Anthem."
