Since graduation time
is lei time, give them
one that lasts


Star-Bulletin staff

It's that time of year again. With seniors ready to receive their diplomas and expecting a pile-o'-leis, give 'em at least one that lasts. A variety of craft lei demonstrations and classes are being offered throughout April and May. Given enough time, you may finish your project by the time final exams are over.
