An extensive photographic montage of 20 years of Malama Manoa activities and programs will be mounted in the foyer outside the ballroom.
The silent auction will include lunch with Governor Abercrombie and the First Lady, a Burl Burlingame VIP tour of the Pacific Aviation Museum including lunch, a lamp made of salt that really works, and other unique offerings.
Ramsay Taum, the noted Hawaiian cultural expert, will make a presentation concerning ancient Hawaiian history.
We are especially pleased to take this opportunity to honor three of our long-time members who embody the spirit of our mission: "To promote community, celebrate our cultural diversity and heritage, and preserve, protect, and enhance the special qualities of historic Manoa Valley". The honorees are, from the left -
