From the famous, Willy Dionisio.
More photos from Monday's fun evening at the Makakilo Community Center!

DJ Augusto and Noemi Jarra made it a very lively dance floor with their ballroom and line dancing music. And it is always a treat to have our dance instructors come up and join us.

Benny and Faith Agbayani, Mel Camat and Susan Masumoto, our current dance instructors Mark and Patty dela Cruz, and our very own, newly appointed senior instructors Martin and Leona Powell were there. it was good to see Pepe Martel enjoying our social dance. We have not seen him in awhile.

We had a short program to recognize all of the chapter volunteers who are always there to support HBDA and the chapter in fundraising activities, hosting duties, and in the recruitment and retention of members.

We also thanked current instructors Mark and Patty Dela Cruz for a great job in teaching us and in choreographing an outstanding East Coast Swing routine that we performed both at the Palladium during HBDA's 55th Anniversary and at the Hawaii Theatre for HBDA's Cabaret III.

We also said goodbye to our Treasurer and former Ticket Chair Lorna Depew. Kapolei has been a leading chapter in fundraising, thanks to the efforts of Lorna. She leaves for California the first week of July.

Pub's Side Note: Wow, Willy sure made it easy to make this blog into one terrific write up of the best shindig in the West. I personally want to thank all the participants for making the entire enchilada an enjoyable occasion for me too. Mahalo.
