Over 30 attend lei-making class

MORE than 30 individuals participated in the first fundraising lei-making class conducted by Tahine’s Creation on Tuesday in collaboration with the charitable group Empty Vessel Ministry.

“It was a successful and fun event,” EVM founding director Rose Smith said, adding that the event raised  $463 which is “a big help for our organization.”

Smith expressed her appreciation to the participants and volunteers, particularly 2017 CNMI Next Top Chef Laxmi Shresta of Everest Kitchen for donating lunch vouchers in the raffle draw. Refreshments were also provided to the participants.

Tahine’s Creations director Tanya Salas, who conducted the class, said the participants learned lei-making with the use of ribbons.

“All participants were happy and satisfied,” she added.

On May 11, there will be another lei-making class from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Salas said, adding that the participants will use fresh flowers.

According to Smith, Salas will also conduct a hot hula fitness class on Monday and Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Empty Vessel Ministry Center on the second floor of the Kylie’s Bakeshop building across from EZ Mart and Bali Fashion in Gualo Rai on Middle Road.

“We would like to promote physical fitness and healthy living,” Smith said, adding that another volunteer, Margarita Vallo, recently conducted a demonstration on the use of hair oil and aromatherapy oil.
