May Day Luau Celebration

E Ho’oheno O Na Kamali’i — For the love of the children

A Benefit Luau for the Hawai’i Montessori School at Kamuela
Saturday, May 1, 2010 •  5:00 – 8:00 pm

The first Lei Day was held on May 1, 1928 and everyone was encouraged to wear Lei.  Festivities were held in downtown Honolulu with Hula, Music, Lei Making Demonstrations, Exhibits and Lei Making contests.

In 1929 Lei Day was made an official holiday in the territory and continues on today.

The Hawai’i Montessori School at Kamuela PTO would like to continue this tradition and bring the festivities in our own big back yard with hula, lei making demonstrations, a traditional luau of fine foods, exhibits and a Hawaiiana silent auction.  This is one of the Hawai’i Montessori School at Kamuela’s BIG fund raisers for our children to continue their experience here on campus.

The event will take place here at HMS Kamuela campus with Hula by the Keiki (children) and other members of our community, an underground imu (oven), an auction of Hawaiiana Collectibles, Hawaiian Music, Lei Making demonstrations and a whole lot more.  This wonderful event will be on Saturday, May 1, 2010 during the twilight hours in Kamuela (5:00 – 8:00 pm)

Tickets will be available for purchase in Kamuela at Hawai’i Montessori School at Kamuela, Mama’s House Thrift Store and Solimene’s and in Kona at Hawai’i Montessori School at Kona.  Tickets will also be available at the Earth Day – Rummage Sale Celebration at the HMS Kamuela Campus on  Saturday, April 10th.
