On Sept. 4, Ke Nani Kai doors were opened for a “Community Unity” event. The Labor Day lu`au was a blast. Music and dancing was supposed to only last two hours; it lasted for four. Many thought it brought some healing to the west end. Flowers were donated to make fifty leis and the ladies were busy making them for all the women who arrived. Two of our opio, Kapono Maikui and Mahina Lani, sang and played for everyone. Although they could not attend, Animal Control Officer Richard Maikui and MPD Officer Mike McCutcheon were honored with letters of appreciation. A chair was dedicated to Kumu John Ka`imikaua that was built for him when he used to stay at Ke Nani Kai.
