EASTER LUNCH, PRETTY NOSEGAYS AND GENEROUS TOILETRY WRAPS!!! - Anna Chang and Shari Lee-Huntoon, Co-Chairs

posted Aug 26, 2014, 3:25 PM by Acuw Hawaii


ACUW Ladies, you rock!  Dressed in their pastel colors and donning Easter hats, 27 members and their guests celebrated an early Easter at the Willow’s Restaurant’s delightful Hawaiian and American buffet!  130 nosegays along with 130 bags of toiletries were artistically created and tied off with ribbons for our visit to Pālolo Chinese Home the following Sunday. 


Ruth Hirai’s “Birds of a Feather” vintage hat, made of pheasant feathers by her father and accented with Ruth’s creativity, won “The Most Beautiful!”  Mabel Lee, Pat Hubbard’s mother, achieved “The Most Creative!” with a garlanded Easter basket – cleverly named, “Basket Case…”  And then Christine Ling won “Most Inspirational” as she added her own touch to her very pretty chapeaux. 


The food was wonderful, the service great (we had our own personal attendant), and the spirit of each of the ladies working together to make something special for Pālolo residents deemed it a perfect day!   

Thank you, ladies, for giving of your time as well as your donations! 


[Special thanks to Cheryl Parker for the donation of a gift card for a Round Table pizza, Pat Hubbard for a gorgeous flower arrangement and Shari Lee-Huntoon for her unique bracelet.] 

Nosegay:  “a small bunch of flowers; bouquet; posy” 

Origin: 1375-1425; late Middle English; literally, a gay (something pretty) for the nose (to smell).
