Hawaiian Fun Facts…. (from 50states.com)

  • Hau’oli Makahiki Hou! (That means Happy New Year in Hawaiian!)
  • The beloved Macadamia nut did not originate in Hawaii, but was imported from Australia in the 1880’s and was a harvest crop beginning in the 1920’s
  • No building on the island of Kauai can be taller than a palm tree by law

Send us your Hawaiian themed pictures to fundraising@st-johnschool.org.  We would love to use them in preparation for the Auction on Friday, April 5th.
