Greetings from Kalaupapa! On behalf of the Kalaupapa community, I wish to offer a special mahalo to the officers of Mokulele Airlines who provided us with a special lunch/dinner on Wednesday, Sept. 22. It was most filling and delicious. I personally enjoy free lunches and dinners. So please feel free to gift us any time you wish. Go raibh mile maith agaibh. (Mahalo nui loa).
