11-29-08 Livable Hawaii Kai Hui celebrated in the Hawaii Kai Lion's Club Holiday Parade to help kick off the Season. Our Xmas float was decorated with plants and colorful arrangements from the Kamilo Nui Valley. Our lead car was a classic roadster that transported the original farmers from Kamilo Nui Valley. The presentation was enjoyed by local residents that lined the sidewalks of Lunalilo Home Road. The parade ended at Koko Marina Shopping Center where many more festivities were taking place. Livable Hawaii Kai Hui would like to thank all the community members and supporters that donated their time and supplies to build the large float.

5-11-08 A big Mahalo to all that supported our 1st LHKH fundraiser! It was great to get people back into the Kamilo Nui Valley. It was so amazing to hear how many folks had never seen the farm lots and were totally impressed that they could travel just around the corner and find themselves in a country setting. Remember, don't overwater the orchids!
