The lovely Ginger, spokeshorse for the Carousel of Aloha.

Ginger and company had a GREAT time at the Hilo Orchid Society show this weekend. Ginger, of course, was decked out in her orchid-colored saddle. She enjoyed posing posing for pictures with lots of young friends.

Over forty people signed up to learn more about the Carousel!

Newest board member, Leilehua Yuen, was there, learning the ropes, from Juanette Baysa, Galyn Williams, and the rest of the crew.
