Lahainaluna celebrates its 41st Annual David Malo Day Ho’olaulea this Saturday, Apirl 17th. The event opens at 5 p.m. with a paina and poi supper followed by a sunset pageant at 6 p.m. Unique this year is the return of students from the class of 1960 who will be celebrating their 50th reunion, and members of the Class of ’58 who are celebrating their 70th birthdays.
The theme of this year’s event, “Kuleana”, highlights responsibility and aloha. The event provides a venue for students to give back to the community by sharing their history and foundation.
The dinner is $15 and features laulau, lomi salmon, poi, sweet potato, pineapple, and a beverage. The pageant portion opens with a welcome ‘oli followed by the chanting, singing and dancing by the Boarders’ Chorus and the Hawaiiana Club. The pageant is free to the public.
For the second year, the Lahainaluna Drama Class, under the direction of its teacher, Graham Seiki, will portray a tableau depicting the life of Davida Malo, one of Lahainaluna’s first graduates. A special part of the program will feature former Hawaiiana Club members and Boarders returning in various capacities to grace the David Malo stage.
Ticket information can be obtained by calling Lahainaluna High School at 662-4000.
