We took part in the only U.N. parade in Hawai'i and were greeted by Ming Sha, a UN Representative from China, who viewed our booth located at the Rice Building along the parade route. She was very impressed with our projects that we had displayed on our board. We gave away countless "Ready, Set, Go!", "Firewise", and HWMO-related handouts along with school supplies for the keiki. To entice and thank our guests, we provided coffee, tea, muffins, and cookies! If you were there, you may have saw a large Firewise banner hanging outside of our building, another draw for our wonderful visitors!
