Kudos to Greg Nelson of Maui who got up early to catch a flight from Maui to make the Countdown to the Charity Walk (yes, the BIG walk is this Saturday at the north Vidinha soccer fields starting with registration at 6:30 a.m. — are the Kauai Soccer Association games going too?) event Saturday at Kukui Grove Center.
Jill Briley of a biplane air tour firm said she almost cried Tuesday when she got to sit in the cockpit of the Samartian’s PurseDC-8 plane that touched down at Lihue Airport following a 10-hour, nonstop flight (Kaitlyn Lahm, the Samaritan’s Pursemedia coordinator, said she got a good sleep out of the trip) from North Carolina.
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?).
Cov Ratcliffe is an intern with the Kauai Chamber of Commerce, and one of his first duties was helping out at the Administrative Professionals Day celebration, held in partnership with the KQNG Radio Group (Ron Wiley is one of the May 10 Keiki Day VIP newspaper salespeople) at the Kauai Marriott Resort & Beach Club on Kalapaki Bay, where the Kauai Museum will open doors to its annual May Day celebration Tuesday from 11 a.m.
Dr. Kelly Robb was thrilled that Janice Bond was going to teach her and others how to make some of the fancy lei (she made the lei for the Lihue Business Association special guest speakers) at the Specific Chiropractic Center…comes right in time for graduation and Mother’s Day, too!
Kudos to St. Theresa School Principal Wendy Castillo (she had the connection for the pronto pups) and Duke Lang on another great carnival (the food that wasn’t sold is going to flood relief, Wendy said) that wrapped up Saturday night in Kekaha (yes, there is life on the Westside, too!).
