As the February newsletter for Friends of Lili`uokalani Gardens was undergoing proofreading, the thought struck that there were way more photos than we could fit on one page from the 4th annual Banyan Drive Art Stroll.
Here are memories of January 11, 2020, plus those that wouldn’t fit.
Thank you to all who participated in the 4th annual Banyan Drive Art Stroll. The anticipated storm held off and all indoor events proceeded. What great talent we have in this community!

Plein air painters in Lili`uokalani Gardens dodged occasional showers. The only activity that had to be cancelled was Puna Taiko as we could not locate enough shelter to guarantee the safety of their drums.
Brandon Tengan demonstrated gyotaku at Suisan.where the poke bombs were enjoyed by all.
The museum quality origami piece was created by Mitchell Noll, a great grand nephew of Laura V. Kennedy, an original benefactor of Lili`uokalani Gardens.
And when everything was over, the lei were delivered to Homelani Cemetery and placed on the graves of Charles C. Kennedy and his second wife Laura.
