SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — Hui ‘O Na Wahine is looking forward to celebrating the holiday season with an elegant holiday luncheon at the Nehelani, here, Dec. 13.

“It’s that time of the year where we want to spread the Christmas spirit,” said Margaret Trimble, second vice president.

All military spouses are welcome to attend the Christmas-themed luncheon and participate in games, shop with the Hui vendors and socialize with other spouses.

A trivia game will be all about Christmas: Christmas movies and music. Each table will compete for ornaments to decorate centerpieces.

Members are encouraged to wear their Hui membership pins for random drawings and to fill their purses for a “purse game.”

The event opens at 10:30 a.m. for shopping, with a buffet lunch from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. The event costs $20 and includes a delicious lunch provided by the Nehelani.

Participating community vendors include Longaberger, 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.

December’s donation basket is for the Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots drive to support local children during the holiday season. Members are asked to bring new, unused and unwrapped toys in return for free drawing tickets.

Reservations must be placed by noon, Dec. 6, to, and spouses must be 2012-2013 members of the Hui to attend the luncheon.
