Just a little post to give a shout-out to the people who organized Kumiai Day at the Kaunoa Senior Center on Friday!
Took a short stroll down memory lane with my Dad and we enjoyed it so much!
|This is part of the display that greeted us as we entered the grassy area of the Center.|
|You had to take a bango number in order to win a door prize.|
There were some great prizes!
|There was an entire room of photos and artifacts to enjoy.|
|Lots of people huddled around the camp diagram books.|
Here's the Hamakuapoko camp diagram.
Our house was #1588, across from St. Ann's Catholic Church.
Any H'Poko people out there who can ID their homes?
|We had a washboard like this one.|
During my time we upgraded to a wringer washer, kind of like this one.
|Here's a portion of the display of home-made toys.|
|There was a table to try the games. Remember those paper hats?|
|Strawberry ice cake, just like the good old days!|
There was also boiled peanuts, lilikoi juice, and pieces of sugar cane to try.
And after that came lunch: huli huli beef, hot dog,
salted cabbage, macaroni salad, and rice.
|Dad met up with another H'Poko old-timer.|
|Emcees Mary and Manuel Tunta made us LAUGH!|
I think they should make this an annual event!
