What a (Re)treat!

Our Kamehameha ETS Team held its annual retreat on November 13-14. It was a great two days of team building, service, and fellowship. We started the day with a tour of Kawaiaha’o Plaza to learn about our different departments at KS. Then we got to visit the Our Kaka’ako office.

We were given a walking tour of Kaka’ako and visited some of the businesses. Here we are relaxing in one of the “parklets”.

Then it was lunch time. We drove down to the Alley Restaurant at ‘Aiea Bowl. This is the signature dish, the Tasty Chicken. Noms.

Then it was “game on.” Unfortunately, I did not bring my “A” game. I believe my lackluster performance was due to the pink trim on the shoes.

We had an absolute blast! It was a great 1st day….

The morning of Day 2 was dedicated to service projects. Our group was given the theme of “conservation.” We volunteered to help out the Kumuola Foundation in Mānoa Valley.

We spent a few hours weeding around the taro patches. Not a bad office view….

Lunch was at Dave & Buster’s in Ward. We had a private room and shared presentations about our service projects. We were treated to a buffet lunch and Power Cards. Too fun!

Mahalo to our amazing team and our amazing leaders for a great retreat. What a treat….
