On Saturday August 11, 2018 we celebrated summer here at The Cottages of Carmel with our annual Luau. The Bixby and Stillwater dining room were decorated in a village Hawaiian theme. Our residents wore their Hawaiian shirts and island colors.
The Ukulele Songbirds performed for us while we dined on Kahlua Pork Sliders and Luau Pineapple Cole Slaw or Hawaiian Chicken Vegetable Kabobs. Lemon cake rounded off a delicious meal.
The seven members of the Songbirds have songbird names. The members are Little Chickadee Gail, Brown Keith Brown, Mockingbird Laura, Snow Owl Russell, Dr. Duck Chris, Bluebird Nina and Hummingbird, Juliette. Juliette also performed a hula dance in bare feet on a grass mat.
During the song “For You a Lei” honorary songbird Kimberly passed out a lei to each resident. Our residents sang along and tapped their feet with some of the songs. Great fun was held by all!
