When: Check the calendar for our next party. All Club members are asked to be there from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm (approximate end time). Party officially starts at 6:30 pm!
What we’re doing: Greeting the guests into the pool area, serving food, giving out leis to the families, providing music, and partying with the kids! Wear comfortable (family-friendly) clothing and comfortable shoes! It’s probably going to be hot and you will also probably get wet!
They’d like us to bring flower leis, and they’ve also asked us to bring some toys for the children. PLEASE let me know if you’re able to bring anything so I can let them know. As soon as I get responses, I’ll send out a list to let everyone know what has been donated. The wish list includes:
- Water Balloons
- ANY Water Toys – Giant Soakers, etc.
- Large Jugs of Bubble Solution
- Rubber Duckies
- And anything else you can think of that will make this party a success!
