We had a ball today performing at the City & County of Honolulu Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) annual volunteer recognition celebration at the Waikiki Community Center.
In addition to honoring O’ahu’s 2023 volunteers of the year, we also recognized one of our own, Rosie Ramiro, who volunteers for the Lanakila Senior Center and many other places.
Whether serving on chorus committees, helping with rehearsal logistics, carpooling, or just sharing snacks, all of our NLL members are vital volunteers in our own right. Harmony is by definition a collective venture!

Performance among the Poinsettias
Na Leo Lani had a great time rolling out our holiday show for the public at Kahala Mall on December 8. We were joined on three songs by our Sing With Us for the Holidays guest. Afterwards, a large contingent headed over to The Counter for burgers and fries for our chorus fundraiser. Thank you, ladies, for all you do for Na Leo Lani, and thank you to our supportive audience at the mall.

A joyful return with Friends and Family

It was an honor to be a part of this special event. Congratulations to all the students, and thank you for the opportunity to sing for you.
