    We had a great time at the Kanikapila, especially with Frenchie doing a hula, and JennaBree doing some vocals. This was a fun group. It was very nice to see Betty Sue, and Mikey again. Betty Sue took a bunch of pictures - Thank you very much. We also had several first-timers too. The December session should be a BLAST!
