SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii -- The Hui `O Na Wahine all-ranks army spouses club is hosting a luncheon at the Nehelani, May 16, 2013, to recap and remember all that the club has accomplished this year.
All military spouses are welcome to attend the end of the year "Here's Looking at You" themed luncheon, which will bring together military ohana for an afternoon focused on all the achievements and memories of the group.
A slideshow of pictures accompanied with a few short videos of the club's adventures will be presented. The club will also welcome in the new executive board members, as well as thank their predecessors.
"We have done so well this year, and we want to dedicate this luncheon to all of those who have helped to make it so," said 2nd Vice President Margaret Trimble.
Members are encouraged to wear their Hui membership pins for random opportunity drawings and to fill their purses for the purse game.
All members are invited to come have some fun, shop with the Hui vendors and socialize with other spouses. Vendors include Longaberger, Thirty One Gifts, Creative Memories, Premiere Designs, Stampin' Up, Silpada, Avon, Stella and Dot, Scentsy, and Once in a Blue Moon Designs.
Spouses must be 2012-2013 members of the Hui to attend the luncheon. The event opens at 10:30 a.m. for shopping with a buffet lunch from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. The event costs $20 and covers a buffet lunch provided by the Nehelani. Reservations must be placed by May 9, at noon to email@example.com. For more details, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For May, the donation basket is for Operation Homefront's "Back to School Brigade."
Members are asked to bring in school supplies for military children for next school year: backpacks, markers, pencils, erasers, rulers, composition notebooks, pencil pouches, paper, children's scissors, glue, glue sticks, folders, sharpies, calculators and more.
In return for their donations, members will receive free tickets for the opportunity drawings.
