CP’s having a Nohea Koa Kanunu Luau!

Written by a CP Intakes Coordinator

A luau (lū‘au) is a traditional Hawaiian party or feast, featuring traditional entertainment, such as Hawaiian music and hula dancing, and wonderful traditional foods and drink. 

At Col. Potter, when we throw a luau, we have only happy dancing for the non-traditional re-birth of the soul when we bring a sad Cairn into our loving arms.  This weekend, we have offered thanks to many invaluable Transport volunteers who have gone above and beyond to bring our luau guests safely to the dance floor, and we salute their selfless dedication to saving Cairns in Need.

Without further ado, please give a round of applause to our very special guests, Nohea (No-Hay-Ah), Hawaiian meaning “Loveliness”, Koa (Koh'(W)ah), Hawaiian for “Bold, Brave, and Fearless”, and Kanunu (Kah-New-New) Hawaiian for “The Strong One”.  All three come from different places with different stories, and different destinations, but they all share in common the need for love, understanding, and a fresh start in life – a re-birth of their very souls as only CP volunteers can offer.
