Welina mai kakou,

On behalf of the Ka `Ohana o Kalaupapa nonprofit organization, I am excited that Kaua`i Community College and Kaua`i residents will have the opportunity once again to view this great photo exhibit that will be housed in the One Stop Center lobby from Thurs, April 10 through Weds, May 7 during business hours (7:45 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.).

The exhibit will open with a blessing at 12 noon on Thurs, April 10. A guided walk-through will be offered that same day, April 10 from 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

On Sat, Apr 26, from 12 noon to 3:00 p.m., there will be a panel presentation/"talk story" with relatives and others who will share personal stories of their experiences with 'ohana who were sent to Kalaupapa because of Hansen's disease in the 1800s.

The exhibit and talk are free and open to the public, so please join us!

Ka `Ohana o Kalaupapa is a nonprofit organization that is helping to spread the word and educate as many as possible about the good things that happened at Kalaupapa. If you are interested in learning if your `ohana were sent to Kalaupapa, please email Valerie Monson, Coordinator at vmonson@kalaupapaohana.org. She and/or others will gladly research and send you information.
