Photos and Story by

On July 19, employees were given a taste of Hawaii at the PCC Sylvania Campus employee summer party’s Luau. The party featured authentic food, games, Hawaiian music, hula, and a video about Hawaii plantation history.

“I want to thank the people who worked so hard and so successfully to host the Luau,” said Linda Gerber, interim Sylvania Campus president. “For a few hours, we were transported to a wonderful, more relaxed, and decidedly more musical place through the efforts of many people.”

Gerber thanked the numerous staff members who contributed their time and effort to making the party a success. They include grounds crews who created the sand pits for horseshoes; custodians, transformed the HT deck into a nice party place; John Rigdon and staff from the physical education program set up volleyball space; Darin Rose and the catering staff created the Hawaiian cuisine; décor coordinator Maureen Driese; and John Saito and Carey Botts, the Luau Event Co-chairs. Also, the Traditions, Rituals, and Fun committee planned the event.

“(Committee members) deserve our thanks for taking time out of their busy work schedules to make Sylvania Campus a place where traditions, rituals and fun flourish,” said Gerber.
