Mary Figaroa of Big Save was getting a little nervous about the shopping spree Saturday, but that’s only the start of the excitement. This week the people at Big Save host the Easter egg hunt starting at 9 a.m. Saturday on the historic County Building lawn. Actually, Mary and Gary Furugen did a great job hosting that shopping spree, and Kelvin Moniz, or Judy Lenthall, should’ve been there, since Allen Kapali said he was going to give some of his take to those at the Kauai Food Bank, but didn’t know what they needed. Are they open on Saturday?
Was nice to see Glenna Ueunten and the Ryukyukoku Matsuri Daiko members at the Family Child Fair (congratulations to Bridget Arume, Jeanny Odo, Monica Ka’auwai, and all those hard workers for putting together a great show!) at Kukui Grove Center Saturday. Mahalo, too, to Cathy Shanks, for making sure it didn’t slip through the cracks. Daniel Hamada (haven’t seen him around for a while, either), state Department of Education Kaua’i district superintendent, was there, as was Laurie Yoshida, Lingle’s Kaua’i liaison, who was able to bring her daughter following governor duty. Edie Ignacio was trying to find the anti-drug table, and since Chris Aguilar was at History Day, this time it was Kevin Aguilar who did JROTC duty along with basketball player Chaelyn Briones (where was Joanna Andres?), and K-PAL (Kaua’i Police Activities League) wrestlers Ross Rentrop, Jacob and Matthew Jimenez? If you haven’t checked out those matches, you’re running out of time.
