Back to School Luau

Faith Lutheran Church held its annual back to school luau at the Dacotah Pavilion in Chautauqua Park Wednesday. The luau was meant to fire kids up about going back to school, which started in Valley City Wednesday, and get them excited about Sunday school.

The Rev. Jolene Knudson-Hanse said this is the fifth year the church has hosted the luau. She said a luau theme was decided to offer a family meal that kids would want to come to.

In addition to a meal featuring pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, coleslaw, watermelon and corn on the cob, the event also featured games for kids, such as a cupcake walk and limbo.
