    Should you plan to be in Southern California in August...
    
    It's time to mark your calendars and make ready those blue muumuus and 
    assorted Hawaiian garb for the one time each year when flowered prints and tartan 
    plaids blend in perfect harmony.  It's once again the San Gabriel Valley 
    Branch's annual

    *Pali means cliff in the Hawaiian language.
    *Muumuu is the loose traditional Hawaiian dress originally designed by
