I thought I should volunteer for this event next year...since I am also a part of Koloa community.
One of the ideas I had afer looking at exhibit, was.....Koloa Jodo Mission could display plantation items.
For example, this is an old food shelf, called "Safe" here in Hawaii. As you know, "safe" in English means "a secured box for valuable things or money against theft", but this "Safe" is to protect food against flies or gekko or other insects.
In Japan, it is called "Hae-cho" or "Hai-cho." "Hae" means "fly" and "cho" means net. I think "safe" is very good naming as a mixed culture.
It's amazing that we are still using this old "safe" and some other things seen at Museum. Our temple can be a good "living museum"...just my thouhghts.
