Hope you have had a wonderful week.  The performance was AMAZING!  Our members raved about the show and I wanted to thank you for contacting us.  I attached a few pictures for you.  I will mail a cd with what I have as well.  Best wishes.

Mahalo nui loa for your participation in our inaugural Ho’olaule’a.  Your dancers were polite and helpful, and the performance you all gave was truly a highlight at the end of a long day.  I  hope you returned home safe and sound.  Your aloha spirit was felt through your dances and your willingness to travel and perform.  Mahalo hou!

Aloha pumehana,

The ‘Ōpio of Nā Wai Ola Hula Performance & Leadership Team came to Family
Supportive Housing last Saturday and provided a wonderful teriyaki chicken
lunch for our residents. The lunch was a very special treat for all and the
hula performance was wonderful! The children here were amazed at the
beautiful music, and enjoyed watching the young women perform. Thank you so
much for your most generous donation of needed sheets, towels, diapers etc.
You are a wonderful group and I know that you made the families living here
feel very special. You all are welcome back to the San Jose Family Shelter
any time! Thank you again for your generosity and spirit!

I wanted to forward you this email to show how much your performance and interaction with our residents at RPC were appreciated. Thanks so much for your devotion to this great cause!!


Subject: Little Aloha

I just wanted to let you know that the Little Aloha group was absolutely fantastic last night. Sarah said they were “astonishing.” They are not just talented performers-They are dyanmic and friendly. They really created an energized and postive astmosphere last night. All the residents were in a great mood after the performance. It was real treat for all of us. We also got some great laughs when the invited several residents and staff members to join them in dance. They closed the performance with a raffle for t-shirts and lanyards (making sure every resident won a prize). Then, they gave out hugs to each resident. Before they left, they offered a generous and thoughtful donation (26 bags filled with food and other essentials).
It was really wonderful. We would love it if they visited RPC again.

I want to thank you and the young ladies in ‘Ōpio of Nā Wai Ola; it was a pleasure to host all of you at the Essex Library! What else can I say but “Wow”? You brought a little of the islands’ sunshine and surf to Essex, for which we are grateful. I hope your travels, and the rest of your performances, were successful.

All the best,

Thank you so much for the wonderful performance and your generous gifts. All of the students are talking about it today in school. They have all been dancing and are very excited about the hula. The presents are a hit too, especially the coconut drums.

I was wondering what your mailing address is. I hope the rest of the tour is successful as it was in Newark!
