Hanalei’s ‘Green Church’ is turning 100 years old!

Join the centennial celebration!

Yes! The Wai’oli Hui’ia Church’s green, gothic, iconic sanctuary was built in 1912! In celebration of this historic event, our church choir thought it would be a great time to celebrate by remembering the Hanalei Plantation Hotel that opened 50 years ago. The church’s choir shared Hawaiian hymns, songs, and hula every Sunday evening in the dining room from the time Hanalei Plantation Hotel opened in 1961 until its doors closed in the early 1970s.

Memorabilia from the hotel will be displayed in the Church Hall with multimedia presentations and talk story time. And we will recreate a “Piki Niki”, the famous paniolo style meal offered and enjoyed at the Hanalei Plantation Hotel with music and entertainment. The gathering of past employees of the hotel and their recollection of what it was like to work at the only hotel on the north shore promises to be a historical event. It will be an experience not to be missed!

Silent Auction

Part of this fundraiser will be a Silent Auction. Please help support this iconic building in Hanalei by donating something for this important part of our fundraiser. We welcome all donations and also encourage “home spun” auction items i.e., ‘poke demo/dinner for 4’ … ‘ice cream tasting for 6’ … SUP/surf lessons, ‘tours of beautiful homes’, ‘free eggs for a year’ etc.

 

Also, we are looking to you, as a leader in the community, to help us with this event by donating to underwrite logistical costs. As can be imagined, the maintenance and repair of a 100 year old structure is costly. This is the only major fundraiser the church has held in many years. We appreciate your support.
