No, the Kamehameha Day parade is not today. It’s next week Saturday. People watching the Junior Series races at Nawiliwili Harbor (Alvin Kurasaki was one of the fishermen who had lines out) kept mixing up the dates since Monday is the holiday. Sharon Gibson of the NYC said they started their Laser races Monday, and the turnout has been pretty good…check them out, Mondays at 5:30 from the jetty wall … Dennis Chun was enjoying the afternoon from one of the parking niches.
Kahanu Smith (he was helping at the Taste of Hawai‘i) said the parade will take place next Saturday from 10 a.m. from the county building to Vidinha Stadium. Rosie Bukoski (she’s excited about her grand-nephew qualifying for the Pitch, Hit, and Run Regionals) will proably be there for the ho‘olaule‘a before leaving for San Diego … she’s not going to miss the chance to watch her relative play in a major league stadium.
Hats off to Macy’s manager Debbie Chuckas and her Kukui Grove ‘ohana for the concerted effort they’re putting forth to try and help the Kaua‘i Food Bank.
Congratulations to the Koloa School fifth graders on their final recycling presentation to Kate Layne of the Easter Seals … mahalo, too, for the recycling hat! Lions Donald Quon and Dave Myers of the Koloa Lions Club wrapped up their winner presentations for the “Sight is Beautiful” poster contest at the school’s awards assembly.
OK, ‘nuff said … did you get the bon dance last night at the Waimea Shingon Mission? Last chance tonight before it moves to Kapa‘a Jodo Mission next week.
