Mahalo for Pumpkin Success
On behalf of Heart of Aloha Church and the many volunteers that came to help, we would like to send a big mahalo to the Molokai Community for coming out and having fun at our “Pick a Pumpkin Day” held on October 2, 2010. From the kids being pulled in a trailer full of hay, being photographed next to Giant 200-pound pumpkins, to the many families sprawled out across the pumpkin patch looking for just the right one to buy. It sure looked like this was a first for many that attended as well as a walk down memory lane for those that have had the pumpkin patch experience before.
Mahalo to Coffees of Hawaii, Kumu Farms, Eddie Medeiros and Dean Chow for the use of their qquipment and/or labor needs in the preparation of the Pumpkin Patch. Also to Alton Arakaki of CTHAR for providing expertise in the farming and maintenance aspects.
Congratulation to entry winner Kaleonohe Paleka (with the help of parents—Walter and Kanoe Paleka) in guessing the weight of not just one, but two of the Giant Pumpkins in our contest, right on the nose (205 and 202 pounds). Until next year, a hui hou!
Honoring God by Living Aloha,
Pastor Cameron and Jacque Hiro
And the Ohana of Heart of Aloha Church
