One thought on “Mahalo Luncheon Held at Nice Day Restaurant

  1. Thanks Mel for the posting. Everyone seems to be enjoying the food and each others company. That’s the Hawaiian way. Work hard, then kanikapila. Thank you all you wonderful people who helped and those other 20 more helpers who were unable to attend.
