Mahalo to everyone who came out to support the Annual Lantern Floating Hawaii. It truly is because of volunteers like you, who come out to serve selflessly, that this event has such an impact on people and our community, and our world.
I would like to share a message from Chieko Steele, Volunteer Coordinator, of Na Lei Aloha Foundation, that presents the Lantern Floating Hawaii for the past 15 years.
”We would like to express our sincere MAHALO to everyone who has contributed to the success of 15th Annual Lantern Floating Hawaii. Many people have expressed their “thank you” to us and we really owe it to all of you who have genuinely served.”
A viewer from Maui said, “I just finished watching Lantern Floating 15. It is so heartfelt and beautiful, one of the most moving ceremonies I have ever seen. Shinnyo-en has done a wonderful job putting it all together. I cried during the whole ceremony. Thank you!”
Another shared, “The experience improves every single year and it is all thanks to your dedication, thoughtfulness in planning every little detail, volunteers who stand out above the rest, tireless coordination and planning, and genuine service to this community.”
