NEW STUDENT/NEWCOMER’S WELCOME, August. 4, 2018.
A welcoming party was held at the home of Byron and Tawndra Shorter for incoming UH students and their families. In attendance were members from the UH Office of Admissions.
UHAA-NCRC participated in this first-year celebration of a new business, Ono Brewery, and used the opportunity to advertise UHAA and its programs, as well as receive donations for its scholarship. Lei-making demonstrations, using ribbon, yarn, paper and kukui nuts, as examples, were held with public participation. Members also provided some of the live entertainment in a spirit of Hawaiian camaraderie.
UHAA-NCRC members provided free live entertainment at the UH-Army Football Pre-Game at West Pont NY. UHAA worked together with UHAA-NCRC and assisted with the costs of the bus rental. This was a great example of how local chapters could work together with UHAA. Game ticket packages were provided by West Point.
