Happy Camper

Congratulations to Guy Higa, Steven Fujii and all those East Kauai Lions Club members on another great breakfast. Paul Ito said no one was going golfing after, but Kelvin Moniz said about 14 of them were going to celebrate after the breakfast with a round at Puakea Golf Course. Roy Nishida had those ono (and sweet!) pineapple from Maui, again, and the secret behind the miso soup was the hard work being put in by the team of Mike Furukawa and Ellen Furukawa. Erin Garlie is home for a stint of student teaching, and got to enjoy breakfast (she knew which line to stand in). Of course, dad Ron Garlie is a Lion. John Uyeno, former publisher of The Garden Island, was on hand, as was Kiyoto Okimoto and John Ochoco, and was doing double duty as cameraman and all-around cleaner-upper. Good job, too, to Dorothy Hoe and the Kaua‘i High School Leo Club members, who were out starting at 5:30 a.m. to help out. And some had so much fun, they didn’t leave at the end of their shift. Raymond Duarte had a busy day, since he was over at the Kaua‘i Community College Performing Arts Center getting ready for the Sunday-night ballet performance. Good thing he got to eat breakfast following their musical gig.

Over at the KCC Performing Arts Center, Kent Tanigawa was working with Raymond, and both Jose Bulatao and Alan Villaflor were thrilled to have Ramon Obusan and his group on the island for the special performance. Wanda Shibata skipped breakfast so she could go to Sunday’s performance, but said it was worth it!

Finally, congratulations to Aletha Kaohi and Waimea town for being designated as one of the 2006 Dozen Distinctive Destinations of the National Trust for Historic Preservation! They’re the first in the state to have this honor.
