I'm currently in Hawaii (definitely a change from snowy Ohio!), so I thought I'd do a post related to that. I found this piece on the luau President Obama put on at the White House:
On June 25th one of Hawaii's favorite sons celebrated with a luau at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
The program included 20 dancers and musicians from Hawaii showcasing the historical and cultural stories of the islands through traditional song and dance, known as hula.
“President Obama is bringing the Hawaii family spirit of “ohana” to the White House and to all Americans through the first White House luau,” stated John Monahan, President & CEO of the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau.
