June 7, 2015 – Kamehameha Lei-Draping Event – For the last few years, members of the University of Hawai`i Alumni Association – National Capital Region Chapter have participated in the annual Kamehameha Lei-Draping Event during the month of June in our Nation’s Capitol.  With the movement of the statute of Kamehameha the Great -IMG 028- ernie, carolto Emancipation Hall (Visitors Center of the Capitol) five years ago, that tradition has continued with the making of a lei by UHAA-NCRC members and the placement of the lei on the statue along with leis from other Hawai`i-associated organizations. In June 2015, the UH alumni members will once again make a lei and place it on the statue of Kamehameha.  A second lei will also placed on the statue of Saint Damien in the Capitol.
