WBDC 4th of July Fest

I couldn't make it to the beautiful shindig in Wahiawa, but got some news from Aunty Maile. 


To Joseph Martel

I'm so sorry to hear that Joe. I hope everything becomes much better for you. The dance was really enjoyed by all. Another successful event once again. Here are some pictures to share with you.

WBDC's, Stars and Stripes, Red, White, and Blue Dance 2017, was an absolute hit! Everyone not only came to dance their hearts out, but to celebrate their patriotism with the smashing colors of red, white, and blue, proudly wearing stars and stripes galore! WBDC gave each lady, a red white and blue rose and festive shiney streamers to wear on their hair. Patriotic tattoos were also given out to get in that mood of the celebration. Thanks to Pauline Kim and Maile Yagi for donating the favors.

The evening was filled with laughter and camaraderie. We danced continuously, only to stop shortly for a delicious potluck dinner filled with the best foods and deserts. Ballroom dancers as well as line dancers had their fill of dancing, while WBDC's fabulous DJ, "Leland Yagi", played his awesome array of music! The evening was filled with dancing, happy moments of laughter, good food, good times.

President Daniel Preza also went up to the microphone and took a moment of appreciation and recognition, to honor our military and veterans, as everybody cheered and clapped! We ended the evening with the Electric Slide and after that, all stood in silence with hands over hearts, as the national anthem played on. Yes, it was another dance in Wahiawa that not only accommodated the people with wonderful music, food, and dance, but deeper than that, was the touching of the hearts and minds.

We will never know where their influence ends."
