|Click to see pictures from our recent luau|
|On Saturday, October 12, the area that is known as Poinciana Park – bordering Belvedere Road
on the north, Hampton Road on the south, and Parker Ave. on the east – went South Sea
sensational, a luau beyond the 86 people who RSVP’d’s wildest dreams!!!
The first stop on our luau’s journey was the appetizer house, hosted by Sonda and Joe Rocchio.
Sonda had an “Aloha” sign made to welcome her guests, who feasted on delicious appetizers
with succulent sauces.
Greeted by president Tom Conboy and past president Jon Burgess, guests enjoyed meeting their
neighbors and catching up with each others’ summer activities.
Moving on, guests walked one block over to Andrews Road to the Yoakley house, hosted by
John and Mary Yoakley Inglis. Serious entrees were in the making, and neighbors enjoyed
wonderful pork and chicken dishes with rice sides while they casually watched the
sun set slowly in the sky.
But the fun was just beginning. Two doors to the east, at Claire and Rob Schroetenboard’s new
home, awaited fiery delights, and not just dessert. All were treated to a Polynesian show,
complete with dancing girls and fire eating native dancers. Young and old alike were
captivated by the spectacular performance that accompanied our final stop of the evening.
If you missed this fantastic performance and feast, don’t worry. Poinciana Park’s board is working
hard to keep our neighborhood cohesive and active in the months to come.
