Lei-making party for grads returns

If this glorious spring weather has you hankering for flowers, here’s something that might help feed that spring fever.

Rick and Davelyn Miyashiro invite the community to their home on May 30 at 6 p.m. to make leis for graduating seniors.

The Miyashiros welcome participants from all schools to this annual party, and anyone who knows a graduating senior may attend. Family and friends may wear the Hawaiian Plumeria wreaths during the graduation ceremony and present the lei to the graduate following commencement.

Davelyn explains the significance of the garland; “A lei represents a mother embracing her child and the child’s arms around her neck.”

This event has become a tradition each May as graduation nears. There is no cost to participate; the Miyashiros supply all flowers and materials as their gift and congratulations to all graduating seniors and their families. They ask that you RSVP as soon as possible, and no later than May 15, so that they’ll have enough flowers and supplies on hand. For more information, call (775) 450-3873 and leave a message with your name and phone number. Davelyn will return your call and provide directions and other details regarding the floral festivities.
