Celebrating with ohana

People flowed through the campus for the Waimea Alumni and Friends Foundation’s annual carnival.

WAFF president Janice Nitta said work done by alumni at the carnival every year is voluntary. Only Waimea High School organizations that fundraised by running various concessions benefit financially from the carnival.

These included the Waimea High School Band, the Bayanihan Club, cheer team, junior varsity boys basketball, the JROTC, Language Arts Department, Spanish club, W.E.L.L., and Project Grad. Volunteers who turned out include the classes of 1964 through 1968, 1970, 1973, 1978, 1981, 1989, 1990, 2005 and a large number of supporters.

The class of 1979 chaired the silent auction and the class of 1987 operated the country store.

Since 1994, the WAFF has provided more than $330,000 in scholarships and other grants to Waimea High School through its fundraising efforts, including the annual WAFF carnival.
