7/25 Friday-This week for La'ie Bash History, Performance@La'ie Shopping Center 6pm. Show
I found out some interesting facts about the La'ie Summer Bash, and I thought it might be cool to share with the communities through our social media network, friends and ohana family.
In speaking to Aunty Kela Miller who is the Chairman for this event, she works closely with Envision La'ie and Hawaii Reserves Inc., a Land Management Company. She filled me in on what takes place for the month of July in our little town on the North Shore of Oahu. This annual event started 15 years ago as a way to bring together all the communities on the North Shore and implement culture, education and family time activities with fun for all ages. For the month of July, the La'ie community has a calendar of events that take place to celebrate Pioneer history through the LDS church, along with other communities along side. They have a culmination of workshops in Cultural history, Education, Community Projects/Fundraising for the needy families. Each week their is an event happening, and at the end of July as a conclusion of the month's celebration, the La'ie Summer Bash was formed to end the festivities with local headliner performers from all over the State. This will happen on Friday July 25, at La'ie Shopping Center, with vendors, games, local food and fun for the keiki's and ohana! I am excited to be a part of this event, along with my group as it is my first time home to La'ie to perform where I was born and raised. Please come and join me along with Weldon Kekauoha, North Wind Island Group, special guests and hula performances as well. Saturday and Sunday will be topped off with a couple more activities, a fireside on Sunday will take place at the Polynesian Cultural Center. They will feature other gospel groups from local communites to celebrate acceptances and differences in culture and religion, how cool is that! Looking forward to every minute of my week coming up for this trip-mahalo, aloha lives*.
