Pictures Tell All–Potluck Dinner Was Outstanding

Pictures Tell All–Potluck Dinner Was Outstanding

At the December General Membership Meeting (Wednesday, December 11), the Honolulu Orchid Society hosted a potluck dinner to celebrate Christmas and the many good things that occurred during the year.  40 members and guests attended the dinner which was held in the Lanakila Elementary School cafeteria.  The food was abundant and exceeded gourmet standards.  Everyone had a grand time.  Photos below were taken by Mel Waki and Calvin Abe.  Click on a photo to get a larger, higher resolution image.  When done, click on the larger photo to return to the regular size.  Note that the photographers forgot to take pictures of the dessert which was just as outstanding as the entrees.
