Kailua High Firing Up Its Thanksgiving Imu

Kailua High School’s athletic program will have its annual Thanksgiving imu roast Nov. 26-27 on campus, and cooking space is on sale now to the public for $25 per aluminum tray of thawed, seasoned and well-wrapped meat. Of that price, $5 goes to cover the imu expenses, and the rest goes to school sports.

Trays should be delivered between 3 and 4:30 p.m. Nov. 26 at the imu site near the school parking lot, across from the Air Force JROTC building. Pickup time is 8 to 9:30 a.m. Nov. 27. Mail-in deadline is Nov. 14, and the imu pit is limited to 400 orders. According to Todd Hendricks, the retired KHS teacher who coordinates the fundraiser, space usually sells out by the end of October.

Weight limit is 25 pounds per tray. (If cooking pork butt, roast or ham, make three deep cuts in each piece of meat.) Mail checks, payable to Kailua High School, to 451 Ulumanu Drive, Kailua HI 96734. Write “Attention: IMU” on the lower left corner of the envelope. Enclose phone number and a self-addressed stamped envelope for the imu tag and receipt.
