Community center to be blessed
Hawaiian Shores Community Association will host a blessing and open house at its newly renovated community center.
This historic building constructed in 1971 has been a community icon for years and was previously used as a community center and stables. Up until a few years ago, the hall was used by the greater community as a meeting place and venue for all sorts of celebrations and parties. Around 2007, the building was slated for demolition by the association until one of its members, Kevin Wibberley of K.W. Construction, took a closer look at the “bones” of the building and it was decided to preserve this community asset.
After months of repairs along with the help of community volunteers, the newly refurbished community center will be opened, and the public can inquire about renting the space for activities and events by contacting the Hawaiian Shores Community Association at 965-8140 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
A blessing of the property by Kumu Crabbe will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday at the community center on Kahakai Boulevard. Festivities including food and music by El Leo — The Jarican Express will start around 2 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public.
