For the second year in a row, USO Great Lakes hosted an end of the summer Hawaiian Luau. Members of the local Elks Club roasted succulent pigs, Texas Roadhouse provided side dishes, and volunteers helped to secure both a shaved ice truck and authentic purple sweet potatoes from Hawaii to nearly 350 service members and their families. People in attendance were treated to a traditional Hawaiian dance show, corn hole games, and festive competitions.
Thank you to the USO volunteers and donors who made this event possible.
