It’s that special time of year! Our December Christmas party had to be cancelled due to Covid restrictions, but we are still able to take a cruise together!
Our annual Christmas Tour will feature Santa and his Sleigh, weather permitting, loaded with a few gifts for the participants.
We start by meeting in Hilo at Prince Kuhio Mall parking lot in front of Sears and Starbucks, leave by 11:00 and stop at Mauna Kea Park before noon, then continue down Waiki’i Ranch Road to Mamalahoa, and finishing by going down Palani Road to Kuakini Highway, stopping at Old Kona Airport around 1:30 for the finish. There are no plans for a group meal, but individuals may elect to go to a public restaurant afterwards, just not as a group of 10 or more, per government regulations.
IF EVERYONE PARTICIPATING WOULD BRING A WRAPPED GIFT TO EXCHANGE WITH ANOTHER PERSON, UNDER $20 IN VALUE, SO THAT WE MIGHT EXCHANGE WITH OTHERS WHEN WE MEET IN HILO AND IN KONA! THOSE MEETING BUT NOT JOINING US ON THE RUN WILL EXCHANGE IN HILO OR IN KONA RESPECTIVELY BY RAFFLE TICKET!
Each person giving a gift will receive a raffle ticket and place the item in the SLEIGH. There will be a drawing for each participant to get first pick of the gifts to select from the items donated! No donation, no gift!
A $20 DONATION IS REQUESTED FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION, WITH PROCEEDS EARMARKED TO GO TO MARINE TOYS FOR TOTS AS WE HAVE DONATED TO FOR THE LAST 2 YEARS. THOSE NOT PARTICIPATING BUT WISHING TO MAKE A DONATION MAY CONTACT OUR TREASURER, NAOMI TANAKA AT 808-557-0374 OR firstname.lastname@example.org
Contact me to check-in as to who is coming so we can have a rough headcount for planning purposes. This will be our last get together for 2020. Our first Driving Tour, our New Year’s Run, will be January 9th, the second Saturday of the month as usual.
MELE KALIKIMAKA E HAU’OLI MAKAHIKI HOU! ALOHA 2020 AND ALOHA 2021!
