Happy Aloha Friday everyone! Hope everyone is getting ready for summer fun! I know a lot of schools are finishing up their semesters, including the University of Hawai’i and (my alma mater) the University of Portland!

I looked back on my last post, and saw that I had not posted since the beginning of the month! Whoops, sorry! But I have an excuse: WE WERE ON VACATION!

I’m happy to report that in order to feature Alex more in the band, we have changed our name to “ManoaAND” and placed Alex’s name at the head of the table! This is to not only satisfy his leadership in the group, but also his desire to be in the spotlight.
