Birthday of William Charles Lunalilo, 1933.

THE BIRTHDAY OF KING LUNALILO IS COMMEMORATED

On Tuesday, the past 31st of January, the students of Lunalilo School celebrated the birthday of the king for whose name their school is called.

In days past, there were parades and gaiety held on the birthdays of the monarchs of Hawaii nei, but in this new age, the commemorations are very different.

Being that Lunalilo Home is a place named after the king, the home where aged Hawaiians live their last days under the care of the estate of King Lunalilo, therefore the students of the school sent several boxes of food and flowers for the benefit of the oldsters of that home, while the students of the school celebrated that day with the singing of some songs, and presenting short stories pertaining to the life of King Lunalilo.
