October 19, 2013, Saturday evening.
Event: APUA and VIOLETA MOEAI's Family Nights.
Place: Annex Center in North Salt Lake City.
Once a month the APUA and VIOLETA MOEAI's family get together and have family time. It is our goal that our kids will remember their families, cousins, aunties, uncles, etc. You would be amazed in the Poly community how everyone is related and have no idea or clue that you and that person are related in some way.
October month had a Halloween Theme. This month's activity was planned and orchestrated by EVELINI SCHWENKE SAMOA and her children.
All the sisters and their perspective family's, created their own ideas in conjunction with the month's Theme. The boys couldn't make it due to previous engagements.
The turn-out was great and everybody had a grand 'ol time. The family wishes to thank EVELINI and her children for the successful program.
The food was prepared by CATHY TAPUSOA and family. CATHY's Famous Chili (CATHY style), corn bread, sweet cup-cakes, cookies and muffins were delicious and on-point.
