A BIG MAHALO to all of you who had a part in our successful 12th Annual Kewalo Basin Park Clean up/Fundraiser. On this perfect Saturday, we had a terrific turnout again with 200+ people working hard to “give back” to our beloved park. We collected about 400 bags of trash. It was a sight to see all the people working together “E Hana Kākou” dancing to the song of “Working on the Chain Gang” to Human Chain the bags to the roll off bin.
Uncle George Downing was smiling from heaven seeing the “Power of the People” in action. At the closing as we held our hands in a circle, a small flock of white pigeons flew into the middle and as we raised our clutched hands above our heads, the white birds took off in unison.
George was with us… Chicken skin moment
Mahalo for making our fundraising efforts a success by purchasing our T-shirts, entering our drawings, and all the private donations. We now can sustain ourselves for another year.
