Mahalo to Lion Alan Shiraishi for crunching the final

as WLC has decided to refund tickets to anyone who
didn’t come to the breakfast due to the tsunami warn-
ing.

Our warmest Mahalo to the Troop 19 Scouts/Cub


Scouts, for selling 280/250 breakfast tickets respect-
fully. Kudos also to the WHS Leos for selling 280 tick-
ets. Combined, the Scouts and Leos sold nearly 900
tickets this year.
