Any lei creations you can donate for us to sell at Bon Dance will be greatly appreciated

This year at our Bon Dance we will be selling lei. We have a small crew that will be making wili & haku lei for head & wrist. Since this is a trial/experimental project and not much time till Obon, we will not be having lei making sessions.

There will also be plumeria & pua keni keni sewn lei. We are hoping that people can make ti leaf lei, other flower lei and any wili or haku style lei. We realize that there are many other responsibilities everyone is helping with & not much time during the busy week before July 2. Any lei creations you donate will be greatly appreciated for this sale.

Please bring your lei donations to the Retail Tent at the Bon Dance between 4:00 and 5:00. There will also be a marked, designated refrigerator in the Annex preschool classroom to store any early lei drop off on July 2. Lei donations will be collected from the refrigerator around 3:45 pm to be taken to the Retail Tent.

We look forward to selling your creations.
Thank you very much.
