November 19 La Ohana Day includes a SPECIAL PAIPAI event
8am to 1pm.

What is paipai?

We will survey the current population of fish in the pond using a 300 ft seine net to enclose the fish.  We’ll need all hands on deck to help kako`o (support) this event.  Whatever we catch we will weigh, measure and identify!

Please be sure to bring clothes that can get wet and tabis or shoes with laces…it would also be smart to pack a towel and extra clothes to change into after.
