If you’re looking for something fun and different to do this Sunday morning, July 17, please join me at Na Mea Hawaii in Ward Warehouse for Tea and Talk Story at 10:30 a.m.
Tea and Talk Story is the brainchild of Nake’u Awai, my multi-talented friend (former Broadway dancer, fashion designer, choreographer, show producer, artist) who has a way of turning everything he does into a party. The flyer image may give you a clue – and if you’ve ever attended one of his Christmas fashion shows, you know what I mean!
Nake’u asked me to speak about fashion, but I declined. Fashion is no longer the focus of my life. What is? Palama Settlement.
Palama is my family’s legacy. My grandparents, James Arthur and Ragna Helsher Rath, were the founders of Palama Settlement. My father was born there and was an emeritus Palama Settlement board member until he died. I am now an emeritus board member and will probably remain so until I die. The Palama maroon runs through the Rath veins!
Of course, if you would like to talk about fashion or travel, we can always do that too. Tea and Talk story is a relaxed, evolving and, I hope, effervescent, event.
See you Sunday!
