Hedley goes Hawaiian for a night

Volunteers from the Hedley Museum Society host Hawaiian Night.

Running the Hedley Heritage Museum is a basic love for all the volunteers involved, but these people enjoy hosting events to bring their community together as well.

Decorated with depictions of hula girls, Hawaiian flowers, cross-stitched parrots and Macaws hung in the trees, with a few pink flamingos scattered throughout, the back garden area of the Hedley Museum became a perfect setting for this past Saturday nights Hawaiian Dinner.

A very creative Tiki Bar and tables set with shells, rocks and grass umbrellas were set up to complete the ambiance for the evening.

Volunteers, from the Hedley Museum Society; Jen, Sharon, Margaret, Ruth, Jean, Angela, Sierra, Verona and Linda prepared a fabulous Hawaiian style feast –  right down to the roast pork and pineapple upside-down cake.

Sixteen year old Sierra Mackay, a student from Keremeos emceed the evening. Mackay lives with her grandparents in Hedley for the summer so she can work at the museum.

Attendees were greeted by Mackay and presented with a Lei. After dinner and desert she introduced the hula hoop contest and the best dressed contest. All three contestants in the hula hoop contest were presented with a prize.  Best dressed for the ladies went to Peggy and for the men, to Dillon.

Emcee Sierra herself, won the door prize.
