    Norman Ka‘awa Solomon provides a nice blend of Thanksgiving and Mele Kalikimaka, Wednesday during the Salvation Army’s community luncheon at the Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall.

Happy anniversary to Aileen Winters of the Rotary Club of Kauai who spent her evening briefing participants in the annual (who knows when it started?) Lights on Rice holiday parade Tuesday evening (and where was Dr. Tyler Chihara, and Ron Wiley?) at Vidinha Stadium. The parade is Dec. 1 with already more than a thousand walkers and 60 units with a 70-foot float, and the chairs haven’t appeared on the sidewalk, yet.

Meanwhile, mahalo to The Salvation Army, both Lihue and Hanapepe Corps, on the great Thanksgiving meal Wednesday! Larry Rivera was able to tumble out of bed (it’s cold!) and make it to the stage right after Marilyn Matsumoto and her jolly Lihue Ukulele Seniors. Dickie Chang came to check and see if Norman Ka‘awa Solomon made it on time, and Stu Burley (he’s the new Kauai Veterans Council commandant, according to Janice Bond) was able to get a good meal before his guests arrive for Thanksgiving.
