Alumni benefit set

The Waimea High School Menehune Marching and Concert Band will bring the night to life starting at 6 p.m., Feb. 6-7 at the front lawn of the Waimea High School.

The Menehune band is just one of the lineup at the Waimea Alumni and Friends Foundation annual carnival from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. both days at the Waimea High School front lawn.

“There will be lots of ono food, game booths, a silent auction, a country store, and lots of entertainment,” said Brycen Hiraoka, a Waimea Friends Foundation member.

Proceeds from the food booths benefit different classes.

Friday’s menu includes oven-roasted chicken plate, or pork, peas and pimentos plate benefiting the WHS class of 1995 assisting.

Saturday’s offering is a chicken hekka plate, or a kalua cabbage bowl with proceeds benefiting the Waimea High School Project Grad program.

Also on the menu are saimin, pronto pups, flying saucers, andagi, and assorted soda pop and water.

A country store offering will benefit the WHS class of 1987, the silent auction will help the WHS class of 1979, and the tickets and scripts booth will have members of the WHS classes of 1965 and 1970 assisting.

Following the Menehune band on Friday, the Cruz Control, Ryukyukoku Matsuri Daiko Kauai, and Russell Wellington and Friends will provide entertainment.

Saturday night, following the Menehune band, the Bailes de Jose Philippine Dance Company, Tsunami Taiko, and the Waimea High School Hula and Ukulele Class will be joined by other student performers to wrap up the event.
