FAREWELL LUNCH Sadly, Mike and Fran Johnshoy and JoAnne Machin are moving to the mainland. We will be serving a special lunch in their honor on Sunday, May 21, immediately following church services. These three church members have been the epitome of volunteerism, and Koloa Union Church and members will certainly miss their presence.
