Happy Camper

Congratulations to Stu Burley, who became a grandpa for the seventh time! His latest grandson’s name? In honor of the Steelers who won the Super Bowl, Steeler Burley. And, earlier in the week, Stu’s daughter Surrey Parongao joined Sheraton Kauai Manager Angela Vento in accepting their Kauaiopoly set from the Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School students. Stu was at the Annual ACF Brunch, and was checking out the food before getting to the Tech Fair. Chef Mark Sassone was working the pancake section with Chef Guy Higa, and Chef Ed Mizuno was down at the omelette section. He’ll also be at the Kalaheo School Career Day, Mar. 1. Peggy Cha had her regular station where she greeted all the people as they came in, and Dr. Ramon Dela Pena had parking duty. Not to fear, Dennis Chun was doing ‘opala duty, and Raymond Duarte was wrapping up a super busy weekend . Lessee now, tennis, the Lihue Cafe gig, and then, KCC for brunch, and bass duty, too? Marina Octavio was doing a late-night party, and still made it to brunch, and Billy Gibson got to join Peggy and Dan Spriggs of the Rotary Club of Kapa‘a, who presented 20 students with scholarships.

Of course, Kaua‘i Mayor Bryan J. Baptiste was checking out the crowd (Janet Kahalekomo said he told her not to forget Prince Kuhio Day), and wife Annette Baptiste was checking out the trucks. Wayne Miyata was busy with his ceramic students, and Alicia Vegas was spending some time with dad Joseph Vegas at his table. Jaime and Josie Pablo had daughter and Miss Kauai Filipina Veronica Pablo on hand for the event, and Laurie Suganuma knew how to get the mileage out of the Meadow Gold — get a whole jug!
