The celebration, held on Friday, December 4, was an old-fashioned backyard style Pāʻina. The event took place at Papaʻa Hale and Kapakapakaua Malae on the HawCC Manono Campus.
The HawCC culinary program prepared and served a traditional Hawaiian dinner with kalua-style pig, laulau, lomi salmon, chicken long rice, poi and many other yummy dishes. I was so full from all that food! I love a great Hawaiian plate. After the dinner was served, the guests were pleasantly surprised by the friendly culinary students who brought servings of desserts to the guests. We enjoyed delicious haupia pudding and strawberry delight cake.
