Congratulations to Ross Martineau, Gaylene Sinclair, Sandie Moss, Duane Bishop, Kat Kelly and Coral Turner, who all won gift bags during the Small Business Saturday event at the Kauai Community Market, where drawings for gift bags containing items from the market vendors were given away as part of the observance.
Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. (he was the grand marshal for the Kauai Christmas Parade, but didn’t have a convertible … he walked!) had a proclamation for small business for some of the shops at Kukui Grove Center, and Marissa Fahnstrom of Monkeypod Jam was not worried about running out of Small Business Saturday swag.
Laurie Ho took care of the market and adjourned to the Kauai Handworks craft fair, where Carol Yotsuda was promoting her Dec. 12 “Life Beyond the Blackout Curtains” at the new Kauai Community College Fine Arts Auditorium, which was recently dedicated. Carol said this is the first and last time she’ll be doing a public appearance.
Tracy Bauman (she said the All Saints’ craft fair is coming up Dec. 9 at the All Saints’ Episcopal Church gym in Kapaa) said the Dodgeball girl was celebrating her 21st birthday with Sybil Nishioka at the place everyone goes to celebrate their 21st birthday.
