News Release

SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — The Hui O’ Na Wahine all-ranks army spouses club is looking forward to a hoppin’ good time with its circa 1950s murder mystery luncheon at the Nehelani, Thursday, Oct. 18.

All military spouses are welcome to come and be detectives during the murder mystery skit.

The scenario reads: “It’s Peggy Sue’s birthday. She’s turning sweet 16. She and her steady, Johnathon E. Good, have a date at the diner to celebrate. But things turn sour when Peggy and John E. discover someone’s stolen his father’s brand new Shavy El Domino. Will their paranoid etiquette teacher, Miss Molly, and the other not-so-nifty 50s misfits help him recover it before his father finds out? Or, will John E. “The Bee” Good learn a lesson he’ll never forget?”

The Hui O’ Na Wahine encourages all spouses to come dressed in 50s attire to match the atmosphere. Opportunity tickets will be handed out for spouses wearing their Hui pins with their outfit.

“‘The Death of a Volunteer’ murder mystery party last year was such a success we wanted to have a blast from the past again,” said Margaret Trimble, 2nd vice president.

The event opens at 10:30 a.m. for shopping, with a buffet lunch at 11 a.m till- 1 p.m. The event costs $20 and covers a delicious lunch provided by the Nehelani. Participants will also have time to shop with vendors and socialize with other spouses.

Some of the community vendors include Tastefully Simple, Thirty One Gifts, Creative Memories, Stampin’ Up, Premiere Designs, Silpada, Avon, Stella and Dot, Tupperware, Scentsy, Once in a Blue Moon Designs and Choffy.

For October, there will be a donation basket for the Sgt. Yano Library, here, to support our local keiki. Spouses are asked to make donations from the following list: new children’s DVDs, crayons, small children’s toys, coloring books, Play Dough and/or race car toys.

In return for donations, spouses will receive free opportunity tickets to win prizes donated from the community vendors.
