The Social Event of the Year!

On Saturday, December 9, the social event of the year took place….

the Armstrongs’ Hanukkah Party. Over 140 people attended, and a good time

was had by all. Menorahs were lit (a LOT of them), prayers were sung, and the

rockin’ Ruach Band gave a Jewish spin to popular songs. There was enough

food for an army, and a very good thing there was, for a happy army of revelers

descended on the house in Kailua.

 

The pictures below capture the joy of our collective evening.
