Hawaiian S.H.I.R.T Dance 2005

A great time was had by all at the Hawaiian S.H.I.R.T. dance. People began arriving as early as 11:30 AM to get a good seat next to the dance floor and the dance didn't even start until 1:00 PM. There were plenty of exhausted dancers 6 hours later when the event closed. Many of the women this year decided to place flowers in their hair in addition to donning colorful clothing, and our photographer tried to capture as many of them as possible. Hope you enjoy our colorful look. In case you were wondering why S.H.I.R.T. - it's an acronym for Selling's Hard for Individual Raffle Tickets. We discontinued our free room night raffle ticket sales for our festival and replaced it with this dance. It's certainly more fun and less work.
