May YAPI News and Notes
May YAPI was so much fun! It was a real family event. All but one performer had performed in April as well, and that one performer, Kendall Dane, performed regularly at YAPI a few years ago. It was the perfect way to end the YAPI spring season.
Thank you to everyone who helped to set up the equipment and tear it down. Thanks for the great audience that came to listen. A great big “thank you” to DuAnne Redus, owner of Maui Wowi, for supporting YAPI. It’s nice to have an appropriate venue for YAPI. Thanks also to all those special people who forward this on and help get the word out about YAPI!
