Puna Halloween Party

Orchidland Neighbors, a 501c (3) organization was founded in March 2015 to create a community center-clubhouse in Orchidland. They will be holding their second fundraiser Friday October 30, 2015 from 5 till 9 p.m. at the Eagles Club in Kea`au, at Highway 130. Pre-sale tickets are available for only $20 at CD Wizard, Keaau Natural Foods and All Things Beautiful. This Halloween party ticket includes pizza, salad, live music, dancing and comedy. Beverages (including cocktails) are available for sale at the event.

Halloween PartyThere is a Halloween Costume Contest open to ages 18 and older. There is no additional entry fee. (Modesty is encouraged, please.) Winners will be chosen by audience applause.

Besides the costume contest and prizes, the highlight of this evening’s event will be the extraordinary live music by “The Bird” with dancing on a full-sized dance floor, starting at 6 p.m. The band plays outstanding classic rock featuring lead guitarist for the LPG’s Steve Fundy. Steve has played with the great Nick Gravenites, a Chicago Blues Man who played with Electric Flag and the Butterfield Blues Band. In the 1990’s he moved into the psychedelic music world.

Also featured in “The Bird” is Dave Seawater, a four time Na Hoku award nominee. Completing the band is Barney Lindberg and Gary Kort. Barney plays music island wide with cover bands, and Gary plays with the LPG’s.

Live comedy will be performed by Sherri Carden, the “Puna Princess”, starting at 5:30. She will share stories about her whacky farm animals, as well as tips on “low-budget remodeling, Puna Style.”

“We are striving to build a place to hold community events, classes and private parties, open to all at a minimum cost,” says Sharon Landry, President of Orchidland Neighbors.

It is the hope of Orchidland Neighbors (ON) that this and upcoming fundraisers will create the beginning stages for a multi-use building. The exact location is still to be determined. It will be somewhere in or near Orchidland for easy access by nearby residents.
