2010 Honolulu Elks Kumulokahi Presents "Da Keiki Ocean Fest"
Often we hear people say “lucky we live Hawaii”. For me yesterday was a true example of the slogan. The Honolulu Elks Club hosted a family-fun, ocean day for members and friends. It was a celebration of ocean sports, community, and getting active.

Starting at 10am people started to gather. Beneath a bright, blue sky we joined for a blessing and the festivities began! Under the direction of Elk member and Kumulokahi leader Mr. Keoni Farias, registration was open. Keoni is the Honolulu Elks’ resident water expert maintaining the canoes and who without his participation, the Ocean Fest event would not have happened.

I would also like to recognize Mr. Wily Rol and Mr. Jon Takushi, Elk members and members of the “New Hope Diamond Head Surf Ministry and Da Crew”, who provided much of the Stand Up Paddling (SUP) equipment and lessons for everyone.
