The around-the-island bus tour is our annual outing to stock up on orchids for the show, for ourselves, and just to have fun! The bus will leave Greenwell’s at 6:30 AM on July 14th and head north. There will be a second pick up near the pavilion at Old Airport this year. After a rest stop at Tex’s Drive In in Honoka’a, the tour will continue to Carmela’s Orchids in Hakalau, followed by another rest stop and shopping at Big Island Candies in Hilo. The next stop will be Kalapana Tropicals, where we will have lunch. The final rest stop and shopping spree will be at Punalu’u Bake Shop in Na’alehu. It should be quite an adventure and is always great fun. Ask your friends and family to join! They are always welcome.
The cost for the bus is $40.00 and you can sign up at the June meeting. Bring your own lunch. Payment, with checks made out to KDOC, is due by July 1st. Melanie, our tour committee chairperson, is the one to contact for further information (987-2962).
