The celebration starting on Friday night with the lighting of the tiki torches at all the common house doors, and the arrival of Elvis (with Krispy Kreme donuts) to watch Blue Hawaii in the media room.
The partying continued on Saturday with Hawaiian food, rockin' decorations, dancing, games and general silliness. Everyone got a lei with the traditional "Aloha" and "Mahalo" (thank you) kiss (well, not everyone got a kiss). Karolyn took the photos, but she was also drinking Karen's coco-rum punch, so some might be a little blurry! Vonda created a Hawaii quiz and the prize was a little basket of shells.
This party was totally NANI (Hawaiian for FANTASTIC).
