Weʻll be at the Sunday Farmerʻs Markets with our free give aways! 


To help the community come together after the COVID-19 pandemic, 

"Messages of Mahalo" was created as a writable wall mural in the heart of Kailua. Alongside Pali Lanes, Doni Chong created and designed the mural as a way to honor those impacted by the pandemic.  She especially wanted to honor the first responders, health care workers, doctors, and nurses who helped so many. 


 When things are uncertain people need a puʻuhonua, or place of refuge. Pali Lanes has been an iconic gathering place for many generations in Kailua, and itʻs only fitting that itʻs the home of "Message of Mahalo."


 The mural will be on display from May 2020 to November 2020.  

Doni invites the public to write a positive message of mahalo, gratitude, hope, healing, and inspiration.
