The meeting ended with a happy, satisfied, more knowledgeable group. Vivian Blum, Vivian McIntosh and I attended the regular meeting of the Rachel Circle at the Chestnut Hill Methodist Church. As usual, after an invocation, we enjoyed a fine lunch. Desserts and decorations were provid- ed by hostesses, Viv Blum and Viv McIntosh. I had the devotions, which talked about the 12 most profound ideas in Christianity, the most pro- found being "Jesus Loves Me." We sang two hymns chosen to show our thanks at this time of the year. Rosie Peer, president, called the meeting to order. She reported that the recent bazaar and apple butter event were successful.

Rose thanked Olga, Viv Blum and Viv McIntosh for the day's desserts and devotions. The meeting then adjourned. And now the reason for the "Aloha !" November 12, a beautiful day, 1B "smart" folks left Shannondale for Hawaii. Mark Twain said, "It is the loveliest fleet of islands that lies an- chored in any ocean." These travelers -- George and Edna Dant, Betty Lou Bryant, Betty Herrell, George and Charlotte Kirtley+ Fran and George Poyner, Reba Eckert, Mary Hurtt, Vi- vian Kilpatrick, Irene Weed, Jack and Evelyn Taylor, Betty Frick and our pretty, very competent guru tour guide) Ruth Myers (alias "Barbara Waggoner" to us and one tour person), Bertye Riecks and I, got on a van at our clubhouse and happily drove to Duties Airport. Here we boarded a plane at 9:29 and, with only a little tur- bulence over Wisconsin, we arrived at Los Angeles at 11:59. The seats were comfy and we had a nice breakfast en route. Reba and Mary had fun with their own "social exchange of curren- cy," others read, etc. Here, we had an hour's layoff, so we roamed around the airport. This was a great group -- con- genial, fun-loving, adaptable and with four real "gentlemen," all of this lasted the entire trip. Ruth Myers, owner of the Uni-Globe Travel Agen- cy, impressed us all with her organiza- tion, pleasant nature and desire to be of help at all times. At 1 p.m., we left LOs Angeles. We know the plane flew 'cuz we could see distances behind us but was there a pilot? Were we flying automatic pilot? We will never know - we never heard one word from the pilot or the crew all the way to Honolulu. The previous crew had been so pleasant and so per- sonable. However, we arrived safely at Honohdu, non-stop, at 4:30 their time. O Dadge 3M.aI14NII Ruth had given all a surprise gif[ of a lovely Hawaiian shirt. We also had been given two complimentary tickets on the plane for drinks or the head set and some watched Crocodile Dundee. In Honolulu, we again boarded a bus and our luggage was taken care of as we motored to the Waikiki Sunset Con- dominium Hotel. Enroute, the driver, who was also a tour guide, pointed out the Military Hospital, the last one out- side of the continental United States. In 1959, Hawaii had a State Fair - then became our 50th state, "Five-O" hence Hawaii We saw lovely fragrant + flowers and the world's largest pineap- ple sitting atop a structure at the Dole Cannery. We all loved the hanging, sometimes dark China clouds, the trees with myriads of small white lights, the Ala Moana shopping center which our guide urged us to visit to the exclusion of all others (woman's dream and man's nightmare). This is the third largest in the world. We also saw the wondrous of the windows of the Hawaiian Restaurant, America's first revolving restaurant high atop a building, seemingly nestled in the clouds. We were amazed at the moun- tains in Hawaii. From afar, they seem- ed to be made of charcoal and were like backdrops for a stage perfor- mance, but when one got near, they were lush and green. As we drove down Kalulea Avenue, we saw water- ways in the center with fresh water running to the ocean (rain water) Our guide told us that on the windward side of the islands the rainfall is 100 or more inches but on the leeward side, much less. The small lights all over the trees signified a green Christmas all year round. There was a historic restora- tion at a hotel to make it as it was back in 1902. Near it was the largest banyon tree, most interesting to us. We saw Kuhio Beach (Waikiki) and we were amazed at the narrow beaches all over the islands that we got to see. We ar- rived at the Waikiki Sunset Hotel and were placed on the high floors that have a spectacular view of the sur- roundings. Each couple had a con- dominium, including kitchen, a dining and living room, pantry, closets, a large bedroom and bath, and a lovely balcony where we often sat to view all that beautiful charm that these islands provide. Our condos, we learned, sold for $185,000, so we really were living in style. After roaming around the area and sizing up their stores we would check out later, Bertye and I "hit the hay" at 11 p.m. More next week. Until then, I shall recall memories of a trip that could not have been nicer in any way. Saturday was an ideal day for a parade and our parade this year seem- ed to be more in tune withthe theme. I especially enjoyed the floats of the Woman's Club, Pop Singers, Jefferso- - man Manor Nursing Home, Live Wires 4-H and the clever Rocky's Auto float. I tried to get the winners, but for some reason nothing was available. In my mind they were all winners and we congratulate them! It is nice, too, to see the following ideas stressed: safe driving, "Say No To Drugs," and prevention of forest fires. Jessie Nowell has been play going again and recommends "Driving Miss Daisy" at the Kennedy Center and Born Yesterday with Ed Asner and Madeline Kahn. I remember when she first appeared with Merv Griffin many years ago as a guest singer All thought her forte some day would be comedy and they were so right. Jessie and her daughter, Beth, took Beth's twins to see "Peter and the Wolf." I remember the large cast when I saw it but with this one, when the show end-' ed all were amazed to see that only three male characters had played all those animals and humans. This was presented by a rather unknown group in our part of the country, The Nova Scotia Mermaid Theatre, and this in- terpretation of the classic was most in- ventive and accessible adaptation. Until next week, take it easy with that shopping, do not overdo with leaves, have the happiest and remember, "The chief hazard in jum- ping to conclusions is the high percen- tage of misses."
