It’s a good thing we have two mayors — Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. is expected to be at the Waimea Town tree lighting, Saturday evening, said Penny Young, and Mayor-elect Derek Kawakami is scheduled to be at the St. Rafael’s lighting festival in Koloa at the same time, said Brenda Sameshima. OK, so which one do we choose to go to?
Liko Pereira (how come there is a delay in some smartphones?), Harriet Watanabe and County Council Chair Mel Rapozo didn’t let the 25th Kauai Christmas Parade stop them from watching the Kapaa High School football team battle the Lahainaluna Lunas for the First Hawaiian Bank Hawaii High School Athletic Association Division II football title Saturday afternoon at Kukui Grove Center.
Happy birthday to Wendy Oyama (great job with the tie-died outfits and the Pokemon headgear!), who spent her special day serving up turkey lunches at the Kapaa Interfaith Association Thanksgiving luncheon at the All Saints Episcopal Church gym in Kapaa!
Kudos to Fred Atkins, Chef Johnny Saguid, and the Luau Kalamaku kitchen crew volunteers for stepping up and helping The Salvation Army Capt. Bill Simon with the annual The Salvation Army community Thanksgiving luncheon that is being served up today from 10:30 a.m. at the Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall!
Was it county Planning Department Director Michael Dahilig’s birthday? Whatever the reason, congratulations to the coordinators of the Rice Street Block Party on a great event for filling the section of Rice Street from the intersection of Kalena/Hardy streets to Umi street with revelers of all ages!
Jim Benkert said the next time you see Bikes on Rice (Street) will be the holiday ride when the bike riders light up their metal steeds and participate in the annual Lights on Rice holiday parade, Friday, Dec. 7 (saved your spots, yet?), starting at 6:30 p.m.
Yikes! It’s Wednesday already and Sharon Lasker of the Regency at Puakea invites people to their Fourth annual Holiday Craft Fair and Rummage Sale (they got good stuff) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There’s even lunch of a Portuguese bean soup, cornbread and water available … Missy Saiki said the All Saints craft fair is Dec. 8 (not 3!) in Kapaa.
