Moai Celebrate Sixth Poreko


The Fraternal Order of Moai was founded in Columbus, Ohio, six years ago today on January 1, 2005. In the darkness a torch was lit and in the light of that torch was a circle of faces which founded the Fellowship.

That circle continues to grow and 2010 was a busy year for the Fellowship as we gathered to work and play at events like Ohana Luau at the Lake, Festiki, the Northeast Tiki Tour and of course our first national convention. Moai also gathered at countless other formal and informal events around the country while looking for more people who are "Moai material."

The year was also busy in the main administration hut as the Order added a seventh chapter in Denver, Colorado, and incorporated as a nonprofit corporation and became The Fraternal Order of Moai, Inc.

After a busy night of celebrating Poreko today may be spent on more mundane chores like packing up instruments, cleaning glasses and bar tools but then it will be time to start work on our projects and good works for 2011. Be sure to come out and see us at a F.O.M. sponsored event or anywhere else that the Moai may gather, just look for events with any combination of tiki, rum and tomfoolery.

Keep the torches burning,
