Hi, Steve Lee here again. I thought I’d take some time to continue on with a description of what we’re doing for the 2008 luau.
At brunch/breakfast, we’ll have some time to relax and chat in the cafeteria. At around 11AM or so, we’ll have to split up into a couple of groups. The first group is the decorations crew. We’ll need to finish off any last minute preparations and put up the last few displays. Meanwhile, we’ll need a few strong backs to move the food we just prepared along with the soft drinks down to the refrigerator truck that is down at lower field.
The rest of our volunteers will probably be needed up at the imu pit. By now, it should be time to uncover the pit and start shredding the first batch of pig. Just like with decorations, the more hands we have the easier it will be. And the shredding is especially important because this first batch is what we’ll be having for lunch.
Speaking of lunch, we usually serve around 2:30 or so. We’ll gather all of the ’84 volunteers, the staff, and student volunteers for lunch in the cafeteria. The shadow volunteers for ’85 will be serving. This will be a big whirlwind of activity as about 350 meals get served in about 45 minutes.
Lunch will be the same as what the other guests will be having for dinner, so don’t worry about missing out on the great Hawaiian food. Kalua pig, squid luau, chicken long rice, poi, lomi salmon, poke, haupia, pineapple, etc.
I’ll post what happens after lunch in my next post as that is when we really start flying. But after luau is done, we’ll have a heckuva post party up at the imu pit for all of the volunteers. So even if you can only make it for part of the day, you’re still invited to the post party.
As usual, you can contact me at steve (at) 3155alani (dot) net.
