Lychee (or is it “litchi” or “lichee?”) tarts just hit the spot, so Carol Lovell of the Kaua‘i Museum made sure she got some “Asian” items for Saturday’s Family Day. And knowing Mark Oyama of Mark’s Place and Contemporary Flavors Catering, that’s probably a spin-off of their Monday dessert special. Gung hee fat choy! “Coach” Sean Magoun didn’t even attempt to pronounce that one, and Carol shed some light on the Chinese new year. Now, where is Wanda Shibata and company? Bev Pang was making sure the keiki didn’t run into each other at the Eastside Family Summit (congratulations, Bridget Arume and her committee on a great event!). Col. Jerald Knudsen said his Kapa‘a High School JROTC cadets had put in a lot of work to get the layout correct, and paddlers Derek Saiki and Ella Arume both came after the Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation regatta to help out. Donna Schulze had her pink heart dress on (Friday was Wear Red Day, in honor of women and cancer survivors, and Mary Williamson knew that), and Marissa Agena was there to welcome people through one of the gates. Bobby Schutz had time to enjoy some of the ono grinds (Francesco Garripoli said he spent two months asking for donations), and Carol Yotsuda had a lei of her grandson’s pictures, the grandson making his first sojourn into the public at her function. Even Mike Koerte made the trip “past the airport road stoplight.” Coaches John Kaneholani and Philip Baclayon were coaching ‘ukulele players instead of basketball players for this day, but watch out come Tuesday!
