Fern installed as flooring officer
George Fern, owner of Kauai Floors, was recently installed as secretary and Kaua’i director of the Hawaii Flooring Association. The action happened at the association’s 14th Biennial Convention on O’ahu.
Sweet corn is main Kaua’i vegetable crop
Sweet corn was the major vegetable crop grown on Kaua’i last year, according to the state Department of Agriculture. In 2001, some 975,000 pounds of vegetables and melons were harvested on Kaua’i, with a farm value of $1,058,000, from 120 harvested acres.
The island produces only 1 percent of the state’s total melon and vegetable production, and the 2001 production was down 17 percent from 2000 results.
Po’ipu Beach guide for 2003 is out
The 2003 Poipu Beach Guide has been printed for the Poipu Beach Resort Association. Some 35,000 copies were printed, after production work done by Koloa’s Tsunami Marketing. The brochures feature lots of information about South Shore hotels, restaurants, activities and other businesses and attractions, and will be used for continuing promotional efforts of PBRA.
