Dr. Kelly Robb (Dr. Addison Bulosan was still recovering from the Kauai Filipino Chamber of Commerce meeting) did not have an American Cancer Society Relay For Life shirt (they were available in different colors this year!), but did have a special lei (did she learn how to do that from Janice Bond Thursday night?).
Janice was having a whirlwind of a day, starting with the Kauai Visitor Industry Charity Walk pancake breakfast at the Aqua Kauai Beach Resort (how many of you remember Turquoise “Toto” Santos flipping pancakes at the American Culinary Federation breakfast?). From there, it was off to the Filipino chamber quarterly meeting (Laurie Yoshida’s first as the organization’s president), and then flying to the Foodland Princeville, where the East Kauai Lions Club (yes, she had her Lions vest on at the Filipino chamber meeting) presented the North Shore Lions Club (Gary Pacheco got surprised by a contribution from Lucas Moore) with some help for disaster relief, and Lions District 50 Governor Blayne Hanagami came in from the Big Island for more disaster relief.
And then, it was off to visit Stu Burley (he had to get a Relay luminaria), another lei, and stopping at the Relay For Life (great job, Patti Ragasa Ornellas!) to place the luminaria in the Circle of Hope (hats off to Penny Vess on being the Ambassador of Hope!).
And don’t forget — Tuesday is May Day (Troy Lazaro said they have things going on at the Marriott’s Waiohai Beach Club, too) with Chucky Boy Chock and the Kauai Museum ohana at the Kauai Marriott Resort and Beach Club, Puna Court area (Lyah Kama-Drake said there will be bento, too!).
