2007 Hanama`ulu Town Events ...

* Instead of a BIG celebration in July, the Hanama`ulu Town Celebration Committee plans to hold quarterly events to build community interest, support, and participation.

*The committee is considering get-togethers with food and free bingo with prizes. Also, special events for the children at Easter, Halloween and Christmas.

*Before holding another Hanama`ulu Town Celebration, the committee wants to formally organize and obtain a non-profit 501.c3 designation so the group can apply for grants. The committee covets the attention of government leaders and foundations in its aspiration to see a Hanama`ulu Community Center built in the near future.

*Moreover, the Hanama`ulu Town Celebration Committee plans to publish a quarterly newsletter. Membership will be open to non-Hanama'ulu residents so those who are not residents of the town but who have Hanama`ulu's interest at heart can join.

Christmas Party
THE 2006 HANAMAULU TOWN CELEBRATION Committee made magnificent plans
for a Christmas Party, which was held on
Friday, December 15, 2006.

Food, Fun, and Fellowship were given high billing, and the interest for the gathering was so high, the venue had to be changed to the Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall. The Kalepa Village Conference Room would have been too small, and parking would have been a problem.

Santa's visit, the grab bag for kids, and free bingo were
orchestrated by Rena and Blu Ulanday, who did a
marvelous job in planning and in executing the plans.

Those in attendance applaud Eddie Sarita, chairman, and his many helpers for a job well done. And special mention should be made of Blu, who made a credible and a creditable Santa!
Easter Plans
On March 9, the Webmaster posted on the Welcome page: "Plans will be posted as they become available." For our Web site readers who maybe wondering about the latest word, there may be no community Easter event at Hanama`ulu this year. Let's hope there will be one next year. HAPPY EASTER! (Posted April 1, 2007. No, this is not an April Fool's joke!)
Other Activities

On March 9, the Webmaster posted on Welcome page: "Activities will be posted as they are planned." Please read the postings on the Hanama`ulu Neighborhood Association page, the second page of the Web site. (April 1, 2007/July 12, 2007)
