2018 Waldorfaire Heartfelt Mahalo

Kat here . . .

Before I turn the floor over to Chairperson Jana Moore to make her many thank yous, I would like to thank her for all the work she's done over the last five years as Waldorfaire Chair.

Her familiarity with the event was truly a blessing for me in my first year. Thank you, Jana!

And now a few heartfelt words from her:


Dear Honolulu Waldorf School Ohana,

I cannot thank you all enough for once again making Waldorfaire such a magical experience for

our keiki and guests. Whether you were a shift volunteer, helped prep a booth, purchased scrip, or created something with Mrs. Bryce and Mrs. Knapp in a Crafternoon session for the toy shop, YOU made this Faire happen!

The Waldorfaire Committee wants to extend a special thank you to the Faire’s hero, Kepa, who ensured a smooth start to our Faire, as well as the countless contributions he makes to our school and keiki every day.

We also want to share our gratitude for the following individuals who really went the extra mile to ensure this year’s Faire went off without a hitch:

 Andrea/Samadhi Hawaii, Rustin Smith, Jillian Gold, Kat Fitzpatrick, Jessica Takei, Erika Takahashi, Silvia Jaimes, Joyce McCarthy, Astrid Tommasino, Jason & Hillary Godwise, Yumiko Tamura Loose, Olivia Busenbark, Gretchen Valentin, Lu Morelli Vine, Tarah Nelson, Kimberly Hakola, Linda Fuiji, Tracy Packer, Svetlana Bianchetti, Tomomi Sydow, Junko Horiguchi, Heather Mohr, Junko Munakata, Arlene Sato, Will Temple, Ann Marie Brege, and MANY more worked diligently behind the scenes.

Also, great big Mahalo, to our very own high school students who took a hand in making Waldorfaire a unique and exciting time! They created a new version of an old favorite (jousting) and hand-made the beautiful new scrip signs you saw throughout campus. Also, Nikolas Bianchetti and Myla Smith did a fantastic job of emceeing!

As I pass on the torch to the next Waldorfaire Chair, I’d greatly appreciate if you'd take one minute to fill out this very brief survey to assist her in planning Waldorfaire 2019:


It’s been an honor to serve as Chairperson and collaborate with so many passionate and talented people.


I look forward to supporting our school as a board member and behind-the-scenes volunteer, as well as seeing what our creative parent leaders produce in the years to come.


Thanks again and I hope you all have a Happy Halloween! :)

 Mahalo nui loa,

 Jana Moore
