While it has been a quiet fall for the Kamehameha community in terms of legal matters (mahalo Ke Akua!) the Schools continue to diligently carry out Princess Pauahi's vision to teach industrious young men and women who will emerge as leaders among our people. Along those lines...
The Kamehameha Schools' Warrior Marching Band will be making a historic trip to Pasadena, California to march in the Tournament of Roses Parade this January 1. This will mark the first time that the marching bands from all 3 Kamehameha Schools campuses will join together to form one band! Under director John Riggle and assistant director Aristotle Santa Cruz, the combined band will make the Kamehameha 'ohana and all of Hawai'i so proud !
If you live here in southern California, and you are interested in participating by donating kaukau (water, cup-o-noodle, apples, oranges, cookies, etc.) or kala to help feed the band (!), then please contact me and I will let you know how you can kokua with our local civic club, glee club and alumni association who are all scurrying like menehune to prepare for the arrival of the haumana, their chaperones and kumu on Dec. 26.
If you don't live here in southern California, be sure to tune in on January 1, 2008! The parade begins at 8am Pacific Standard Time. No miss out!
