Aloha Dear Friends of Akiko & Wailea Village:
We are very excited to share some BIG mahalos, a Reminder for our 17th. Annual Mochi Pounding and a New website we think you'll like as much as we do.
Reminder: Our 17th. Annual Traditional Mochi Pounding is 8 am to 2 pm, Sunday, December 28. Visit www.akikosbnb.com for information on all special events or B&B accommodations.
New website: One of our community members, Susan Forbes, has created a beautiful new website for the area that once defined the Hakalau Sugar Plantation from Wailea Village to Ninole. Click on the link www.hakalauhome.com to visit each of the sections (yesterday, today & tomorrow) for a feast of great photos, slide shows, and links to current information on public and private community development plans, environmental issues and much more. You are also invited to help Susan "fill in the blanks" with contributions of local history.
Akiko's weekly FoodShare email blast to vendors, friends and neighbors always ends with a poem in the spirit of gratitude. We share with you in closing, along with sincerest appreciation for your continued support, participation and aloha.
