A nice night for a Lu'au
For the 47th year in a row, Pacific University students share their Hawaiian culture with the larger community
The aloha spirit was everywhere last Saturday on the Pacific University campus in Forest Grove as hundreds of people - including family members who flew in from the Hawaiian islands - celebrated at the 47th annual lu'au sponsored by the campus Hawaiian Club, Na Haumana O Hawaii.
The theme of the event, which featured a sumptuous island feast and a program that included dancing and music, was Ke Kaila O Na 'Aina, or 'Island Style.'
Pacific students Raysha Sadang, Tiffany Yabuta and Jerrett 'Moki' Takayama formed the steering committee that planned this year's lu'au.
