Kelly Watkins and Karen Hermer compete in the Hula Hoop competition athe Hall in PlevnaBright flowers and grass skirts abounded at the Plevna Luau last Saturday, at the Clar-Mill Hall. Turnout for the event was so fantastic that more tables and chairs were needed to accommodate everyone for the delicious meal of salads, pork, sweet potato, rice and pineapple chicken, as well as pineapple upside down cake for dessert! Dashing waiters circulated offering delicious tropical punch and there were cultural displays, including a coconut and pineapple taste test booth.
There were several fun contests such as, the best hula hooper (children’s category: April, adult category: Chris Bacon); the best at Limbo (children’s: Morgan, adult: Kelly Watkins); best costume: (children’s: Mitchel, adult: Becky Kavanaugh). Ina Watkins won the “Guess the number of shells” game and won a beautiful plant donated by Gerry and Joy Martin.
Later in the evening the beautiful table cloths made by Debbie Kelford were auctioned off and Sherri Gorr, who brought potted flowers to decorate the event, donated $1 from each plant sold at auction as well. It was a fabulous success, and a good time was had by all! Thank you to everyone who came out to this tropical evening, and thank you to the Clar-Mill Volunteers who, once again, put on a wonderful community event!
