The Tuesday class (Phyllis Nakamura said if you want to see former Mayor Maryanne Kusaka you gotta check out the Saturday class), led by Evelyn Ritter (she did a lot of the artwork in the Kauai Museum), loves the character of its new workplace at the Kauai Museum courtyard.

Kudos to Denise Ching and Lily Williams who flew in for Honolulu to help coordinate the Career Expo (Cherie Cabading was able to work the Times Supermarket table, and still make it to the KIF football game!) at the Kukui Grove Center.

Happy Camper for Monday, October 8, 2018

Edwin Vea (he’s got the Beach House craft fair Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Poipu) scored some of the Waimea Senior Center temari holiday ornaments (Melanie Okamoto was able to get some for her Christmas tree too), and Sumako Ichimasa got Marian Ogata one of the adenium bonsai from the annual Senior Food and Craft Fair (kudos to Na Kupuna Council and the county Department of Parks and Recreation in presenting this event) Saturday at the Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall in Lihue.

Happy Camper for Sunday, October 7, 2018

Kudos to Tiffany Dick and the Aloha Dance Studio on opening the 2018 edition of Freaky Fridays at Kukui Grove Center (Tiffany said one of the zombies even scared Melissa McFerrin-Warrack!). The event is a unique Halloween event helping raise funds for the Aloha Dance Studio off- island competitions while providing shoppers at the mall a nice change of pace.

Wow! Kudos to all those who are observing October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month (the Kauai Interscholastic Federation volleyball officials all have pink whistles and lanyards; Kapaa and Waimea high school girls are in pink warmups, and there is still more to find). Edie Ignacio Neumiller got the county Department of Water to do pink, and Alden Alayvilla said the Historic County Building is lit up in pink (so is that shopping stop in Kapaa across Otsuka’s) for October.

Happy birthday, Waileia Edwards, who got solid support from her Kauai High School volleyball team Saturday night. The team was so generous in their support of Waileia’s birthday, they even sent out birthday cake to the parking lot security corps.

Kudos to Bryden Kaauwai (he wasn’t playing in the band Thursday, said Nina Saraos) and his Red Raider organizers on the first Raider Parade celebrating homecoming at Kukui Grove Center (Melissa McFerrin-Warrack said she never experienced anything like it before).

Happy Camper for Friday, September 28, 2018

Kudos to the Kauai High School homecoming committtee on hosting the first-ever (can’t remember one in the past 70 years, at least) homecoming parade Thursday at Kukui Grove Center.
