WASABI Still Hot In July

If you're looking for more heat this summer, WASABI has got some hot stuff for the month of July. But first, go read the e-mail from Doreen............................

Before I get started, I want to let you know this is my new email address ( ). I had to open a new gmail account because my hotmail account got hacked. Luckily, I had actually set up this gmail account about 7 months ago because my hotmail account was kinda junk and frustrating to use; especially with somebody like me, who's totally "lame" when it comes to the computer. Well, to make a long story short, I had imported most of my email addresses to my gmail account thinking that I would change over when I had time to figure out how to use gmail...Ok, I was rudely forced to actually jump into gmail, BUT, at least I have most of my email addresses!!! I am missing all of the addresses that were given to me from November 2011 to now, so if you remember whose addresses you gave me recently, can you kindly send them to me again so I can add them to my contact list?
If you emailed me anything important in the last couple of weeks that need my attention, please resend 'em to me...I lost all my emails that were in my hotmail! Boo hoo hoo! I had all my pictures that people sent me in there that are now lost...Hey, if you guys still have pictures of you & us, can you send 'em to me? I had Dr. Fixit come over to try to reopen my hotmail cuz Microsoft shutdown my account when I got hacked, but he said that the hacker has some kind of encrypted sh-t that prevented him from reopening the account, so I can't get back in...He said these hackers have nothing better to do than make people miserable. He also recommends gmail, so it's a good thing I had one, yeah?!
Now back to business. Here's what we got in the month of July:
- Wed. 7/04.....4th of JULY Celebration with WASABI LIVE @ MGB (JCCH's Manoa Grand Ballroom)...7:30-10:30 p.m.
$10 Admission + $5 Parking Fee will be collected at the Door. No Host Bar & Pupus available for purchase (menus
will be on the NO pupu buffet this time!). This is a HOLIDAY event, so come on out to celebrate with
us as we watch the 4th of July Fireworks from the lanai of the Manoa Grand Ballroom!!!
- Thu. 7/12.....WASABI Oldies Night at St. Louis Alumni Clubhouse...7:00-10:00 p.m.
- Sat. 7/14.....WASABI @ Dot's in Wahiawa...Sizzlin' Hamburger Steak here we come!!!...7:30-10:30 p.m.
- Fri. 7/20.....Flashback Friday's @ Ige's Restaurant & 19th Puka...8:30-11:30 p.m.
And, NO FORGET...we're at Ige's this coming Friday, 22 June! It's predicted to be a busy night cuz one of our WASABI fans booked her party there that night, and the count has grown to 120, plus we have Garry Moore's Pearl City classmates, and of course, our ever-faithful friends, YOU, and a whole bunch of other people! Ron said it's gonna be really packed, so make sure you all come early for parking!
Let's keep this ball rolling...don't forget to support LIVE music cuz we don't ever want to go back to "piped music"...too BORING!!!
Thank you ever so much for all your LOVE & SUPPORT all these years! You guys ROCK!!!
Love from me & da boyz,

Que Pasa Dance Magic 808 1st Anniversary Ball?

Aloha Students of Dance and non-dancers,
        The Dance Magic 808 First Anniversary Ball is fast approaching. So what's gonna happen at the Pacific Beach Hotel on July 6th?  Well here's a small hint by Dance Magic 808 Prez Lynn and Richard Nakamura.....................

For those of you who have already purchased tickets to Dance Magic 808's 1st Anniversary Ball on July 6, 2012 at the Pacific Beach Hotel, Thank You very much. We would also like to thank everyone who has sold or is selling tickets to the ball.

We know some of you would like to come but are not able to attend due to other previous commitments like a family trip, wedding, graduation party, and etc.; we understand and we would also like to thank you for your well wishes.

We appreciate everyone's support of Dance Magic 808's 1st Anniversary Ball.

This will be an enchanting evening. We have lined up some entertainment that non-dancers and dancers will enjoy.

To start the night, we'll have a hula by Leilani Soon, and everyone will feast on a delicious buffet dinner. There will be a lot of socializing and dancing.

Don't want to give away all of our enchanting evening's program but our special guest singer will be the legendary Melveen Leed. She is an awesome entertainer and we are very fortunate to have her sing for us at the ball. We will be asking her to sing a song and will ask all dancers to come up to the floor to dance. We are also fortunate to have our niece, Kim Anderson & her boyfriend, Tony Butindaro sing a song where the audience can dance too. Kim has had several lead roles in plays at the different theaters here locally and Tony has the lead in Xanadu now playing at the Diamond Head Theater.

We will also have some exciting solo and group routines to entertain everyone. There will be a lot of time for general dancing before dinner, during the program, and after the program. Besides the ballroom dances, we will have some swing dances as well as line dances for everyone including the non-dancers to join in on.

This will be a very enchanting evening and you can dress up (it's not a requirement). The ladies can wear their gowns and crowns or tiaras and if the men want to wear their crowns that's fine too. We just want to make this a fun evening with everyone participating by either dancing or just watching everyone.

If you haven't purchased your tickets yet, it's still not too late but you'll need to get them fast as we are planning to stop selling the tickets in a week or two. Don't miss out on this enchanting evening. You can contact Gayle Kawahakui, Ticket Chairperson @ 223-8052 or us. Cost is $60 and it's from 6:00 pm - 11:30 pm.

See you all very soon and thank you again for all your support.
