Mahalo Lantern Floating Ceremony Volunteers!

Mahalo to all the volunteers who helped out with the preparation and clean up of the famous Lantern Floating Ceremony this past Memorial Day.

Every year, this event brings thousands of people together to honor their loved ones. Wish families and volunteers attended to celebrate the lives of loved ones lost while being surrounded by the support of an entire community. Thank you for helping make this memorable event possible! Your support is deeply appreciated!
