‘Gathering of Eagles’ planned on Feb. 11 in Nawiliwili

Leaders of the Kauai District, Boy Scouts of America, invite Eagle Scouts to share their tales on the road of achieving the highest rank in Scouting at a Gathering of Eagles to be held at The Terrace Restaurant at Kauai Lagoons on Feb. 11 at 6 p.m.

Come and meet other Eagle Scouts, learn more about Scouting on Kaua‘i, reminisce about Scouting days, and become reacquainted to the ideals of an Eagle Scout, organizers said in a press release.

There will also be discussion on the possibility of forming a Kaua‘i sub chapter of The National Eagle Scout Association (NSEA), to be known tentatively as the Kaua‘i “Eagles’ Nest.” The Feb. 11 event will feature a no-host buffet dinner. Contact the district Scout office at 245-5942 for further details and tickets to the event.

Spouses and other friends are invited to join in the festivities.

Last meeting on bike path tomorrow in Kapa‘a

The last of three public-information meetings for the Kapa‘a-to-Kealia portion of the planned coastal bike and pedestrian path from Kalapaki Beach to Anahola will be held on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Kapa‘a Middle School cafeteria on ‘Olohena Road.

The final project design will be presented, and construction issues will be discussed at this meeting, states a press release.

This project is part of the county’s proposed Nawiliwili to Anahola shared-use path.

The Kapa‘a to Kealia section will extend from Lihi Park near Pono Kai Resort in Kapa‘a, to ‘Ahihi Point in Kealia.

An equestrian trail is planned along a portion of the path.
