About 100 people, mostly veterans and their families, spent a few hours Saturday at the Aquatic Center for a Family Day celebration.
The second annual Veterans Treatment Court Family Day was attended by veterans in the court system and their families, court employees and supporters of the Treatment Court, including local veterans service organizations and other organizations that offered information of help to veterans.
Judge Mitchell Kalauli, his brother, and Michael Eigenbrodt of Interagency, formed a band once again to play music during the picnic, and many people took part in the judge’s Hawaiian dance lessons. Tables were laden with hamburgers, hot dogs, chili, and Judge Kalauli’s homemade Hawaiian rice. Children enjoyed a bounce house, and adults enjoyed horseshoes and other games.
Judge Kalauli instituted Family Day as a way to promote camaraderie among the veterans in the court system.
