Looking for a fun night?
Members of the Elks Lodge in Lehigh think they can provide that for you on Feb. 27 when they will host what they are calling a Hawaii Night directed by their own Hawaiian member, Kawelo "Maka" Makaneole.
Maka was born and raised in the Punch Bowl section of Honolulu where he learned to do the Hula. After 24 years in the Marine Corps., he retired to Indianapolis, Ind., where he resumed his Hula dancing with the Hawaii Islanders. After 22 years of snow and ice, he said he moved to Lehigh Acres and joined the Elks Lodge.
Doing the Hula: Come and see Kawell “Maka” Makaneole do the hula dance. A native of Hawaii, he is a member of the Lehigh Elks Club and enjoys putting on Hawaii shows. He will be featured at the Elks Lodge on Feb. 27. He lives in Lehigh Acres. Photo provided
For $15 per person, entertainment will be by "The Makaneole Dancers" followed by a Hawaiian Luau meal of Hawaiian fruit, Kalua pork, Teriyaki chicken, sticky rice, marconi salad and coconut or chocolate cake.
The K Tones will provide dance music for your entertainment.
Call Melba McCleave at 303-1866 for reservations.
Many in the Elks Lodge are calling this the event of the year for their organization. The Elks Lodge # 2602 is located at 1050 Joel Blvd. in Lehigh.
