State Conventions

Ahahui Kaahumanu

I attended my first state convention in 2005 to celebrate Chapter 1’s 100th anniversary on Oahu. Friday night I played ukulele and helped our chapter’s presentation of song. Saturday night my mom came as my guest to the Centennial Ball. Sunday was church service for the 500 attendees representing 9 chapters across the state.
