Thank you Ho`olehua Congregational Church
The ladies of Ahahui Kaahumanu, Chapter VIII attended church service at Ho`olehua Congregational Church on Sunday, Aug. 28 in honor of Queen Liliuokalani, who was born on Sept. 2, 1838, a song writer of more than 200 pieces who is famous for aloha oe. The queen was the last ruler of Hawaii before the islands became a republic in 1893 and a territory of the United States in 1898. She died Nov. 11, 1917.
Kahu Charles Poole is the interim pastor of the four congregational churches on Molokai, replacing retired Kahu Fey Ayap.
After the church service, President Vivian Ainoa installed our two new members, Sarah Nartatez and Renee Monitzor, issuing a ribbon and pin to both ladies. We followed with a celebration luncheon at the Kualapu`u Cookhouse.
