Greetings!
 
'TIS THE SEASON TO BE THANKFUL!
HUGE MAHALOS!!!
2012 KIA
KIA Thanksgiving Luncheon: For the past several years, Thanksgiving at All Saints' has been celebrated with an interfaith service and huge feast served in the gym, put on by the Kapa'a Interfaith Association. This year's luncheon saw well over 600 meals prepared, served and delivered--- the most in the history of this event!  Diane Sato and Mary Margaret Smith are the All Saints' representatives who spearhead and help organize this massive effort. We thank them for all of their hard work that brings the entire community together! Click HERE to read Diane's thank you note from the KIA, to all the volunteers who helped make this another smashing success!

2012 CRAFT FAIR
All Saints' Holiday Craft Fair:  Setting another record was this year's Holiday Craft Fair held in the All Saints' Gym & lawn on December 1. With 60 vendors and over 70 booth spaces, this was All Saints' largest fair, that encompassed the gym and lawn area fronting Memorial Hall. Many thanks to the Ke Akua Youth Group and their parents for organizing this hugely successful event, with proceeds from the booth rentals going to their mission fund. The food booth was run by the ECW and youth group, raising funds for next year's Relay for Life that also featured onolicious baked goods. They worked hard to feed the throngs of people, and despite doubling the food supplies over previous years, food was running low early and trips to the store had to be made!  What a great problem to have! Many thanks to everyone that contributed their time, energy & products to this event that brought smiles to customers and vendors!

Christmas Tree:  Many many thanks to Cliff Arruda and Dianne Tabura, for donating the beautiful Norfolk Pine Tree now gracing the front of the church.  The outdoor tree is a returning tradition of All Saints', dressed in blue lights until Christmas... be sure to check it out the next time you pass by the church at night!
