Tropical Party: Bringing Aloha from Kona Hawaii to the City of Newton!


Let’s take some time to relax before the holidays!  We invite you to take a short trip with us to the island of Hawaii to meet our new friends, and Ambassadors of Aloha, Rowena and Brian Vasquez.  We ask you to put on your Hawaiian attire, put some flowers in your hair and turn up the heat as Rowena and Brian lead us through a fun hour of music and dance.  And yes, Rowena and Brian will be  joining us from the islands!
