Lit­er­acy Fair Kicks Off Satur­day

MidWeek Islander (Central Oahu) - - News -

Ho‘ala School will have a free Lit­er­acy Fair and Open House for the pub­lic from 1 to 3 p.m. Satur­day at 1067 A Cal­i­for­nia Ave.

The fair is for chil­dren of all ages, of­fer­ing a drama per­for­mance by Ho‘ala’s high school stu­dents, read­ings, al­pha­bet pan­cakes, lo­cal sto­ry­teller Wally Amos (of cookie fame) and more. The open house will take place in con­junc­tion with the fair.

The fair cel­e­brates the gift of read­ing and aims to per­pet­u­ate it among the youths of Wahi­awa and sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties.

The small pri­vate school wel­comes do­na­tions from in­di­vid­u­als and busi­nesses to be used for the pur­chase of books. Its goal is for each child in at­ten­dance to re­ceive a free, new book at the end of the day.

For de­tails, call 621-1898.
