Celebrate Spring At Manana Fair

Manana Elementary School’s PTO already has more than 80 vendors lined up for its eighth annual “Celebrate Spring” Craft Fair, set for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 18 on the Pearl City campus.

“Vendors love our craft fair because of our helpful volunteers and the good number of visitors,” said Cheryl Katano, Manana’s parent involver.

The fair will offer inflatables, games, and food favorites like beef stew, Spam musubi, teri chicken bowls, fried noodles, KC Waffle Dogs, Domino’s pizza, and beverages. The school is located at 1147 Kumano St.

The nonprofit PTO supports each grade level with “extra” funds for classroom supplies and projects, field trips, chorus, JPO, track and the arts, among other causes. The goal for this year’s fair proceeds is to purchase new laptops for teachers and students.

“Parents, teachers, cafeteria staff, custodians, office staff, students and community groups come together and volunteer their time to help out,” added PTO president Tricia Andrasko. “We do it for our kids.”
