Lights on Rice Parade Thank You

Aloha Everyone!

Thank you so much for supporting Kaua`i Community College participation in the Lights on Rice Parade held on Friday, December 2, 2011. This year, ASUH-KCC teamed up with the Marine Core League to create the magical carnival float and advertise and support the annual Toys for Tots Drive for the less fortunate. With this in mind, students spent many days planning and assembling the design and lights along with practicing dance moves to complement the float. Their efforts paid-off indeed as KCC participants brought much joy and endless smiles to the throngs of on-lookers and spectators.
