The Polynesian club has been practicing for their Luau being held on April 8th, and also has been preparing for their service project on February 25th.
Club officer, George Kaufusi encourages students to attend the luau: “Everyone come out and enjoy! You’ll have a great time because it’s always a fun atmosphere.” The Luau is a fundraiser hosted by the club every spring, and the funds earned are put towards text books for the club’s participants. The Luau will have Polynesian food, and Polynesian entertainment.
The club is also going to perform at a prison as a service project. George Kaufusi gives some insight as to why. “Many of the inmates in this particular prison are Polynesian. In fact, last time the club went, one of the participants discovered that their uncle was an inmate there.” The club used to perform at the prison annually, but stopped recently. This year they decided to start it back up and they are excited to do so.
Thirty plus members are involved in the authentic Polynesian dance. For interested students, the club meets Monday-Thursday from 7-9 pm to practice.
