Kudos to Angela Hoover of the Girl Scouts of Hawaii, Kauai, and all the Boy Scouts (Blaze Batoon was camping with Troop 148 at Salt Pond Beach Park for the weekend) for showing up and helping at the Memorial Day observance presented by the Kauai Veterans Council! Kudos to all the keiki at the public schools for making all the lei, and more mahalo to everyone else who took time to remember our veterans!
