Kahului Church Christmas

Band Christmas Shows

The Ukulele Pops Band performed our second Christmas Show in 2011 for Kaunoa’s Nutrition Program at Kahului Union Church Hall. About 150 seniors from around the island were bused to the event. Kaunoa Senior Center Leisure Program Manager Cecilia Suzuki and volunteer Jim Harris operated the sound system.

The Band had previously performed “Mele Fong’s Hawaiiana Revue” on May 5th and wore the aloha attire that we had planned to use for the Band’s MayTour of Japan that was cancelled due to the March 11 tsunami and earthquake that devastated Japan in 2011.
