February 01, 2017

In celebration of the Chinese New Year and of Hawaii Community Federal Credit Union’s (HCFCU) 80th anniversary, as well as the 12th anniversary of its Kaloko facility, the Hawaii Lion Dance Association from Honolulu, under the direction of Senior Instructors Kelfred Chang and Elaine Jay, will present a unique performance on Saturday, February 4, 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m at HCFCU’s Kaloko facility (73-5611 Olowalu Street, Kailua-Kona, HI) in the John Y. Iwane Credit Union Center. 

This event, which is free and open to the public, will feature a special blessing of HCFCU’s Kaloko facility, Lion Dance performances, and an educational presentation on the meaning and significance of the Lion Dance.  There will also be a rare opportunity to meet and greet the performers as well as to take photos as guests “feed” the lion. 

“We’re so glad we can say gung hei fat choy to the community at this special event,” said Tricia Buskirk, President and CEO of HCFCU. “It’s an honor for us to have the Hawaii Lion Dance Association bless this wonderful facility and share with us the influence of Chinese culture on Hawaii life.”
