Even though we didn’t attend the entire event, this year’s Stampin’ Up! incentive trip to Hawaii was a real treat for Sterling and me! Demonstrators who had vacationed here before and many who had never been to Hawaii told me they loved it too.
The welcome dinner was poolside with lots of visiting and a Maui Jim sunglass fitting. Our official first gathering was at the Polynesian Cultural Center the next afternoon following a morning filled with hula dancing, coconut cracking, and the famous Canoe Show.
Aside from one rainy day, it was beautiful weather with a light breeze and plenty of sunshine…perfect for sunbathing by the pool, swimming in the ocean, and hiking nearby Diamond Head. Among other things, activities also included excursions to Pearl Harbor, a service project, and stamping demonstrations, of course.
The final evening event was dinner at and a tour of the USS Missouri…a pleasant evening and a special farewell for special people!
The week went by way too quickly, and I’m not sure we had a chance to visit with everyone to thank them and congratulate them, but we enjoyed spending what little time we could with demonstrators (and their families and friends) from North America and the South Pacific. Mahalo and aloha!
