Ukulele fest on campus April 25

During 10 Pau Hana Fridays each semester since 2008, campus secretaries, teachers, guards & administrators have assembled tenor ukulele under the direction of Norman Takeya, Guy Fo, Guy Shibayama and a diligent volunteer crew of helpers.

Now, they want to show them off in one place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, April 25 in the temporary library’s gravel lot.

Live music will be provided, and HCC community members are invited to bring their lunch along for the concert.
