Mahalo to Russell Furusho for the alert on Justin Uegawa’s hole-in-one Sunday at the Puakea Golf Course. Mary Bea Porter King stopped off en route to Anna Sloggett’s 100th birthday celebration and Jeannie Warren was doing the team mom thingie — dropping off son La‘akea, doing snacks for cheerleading practice and back to the golf course. Gail Oride was waiting for an open cart and it’s always nice to see Rachel Kyono. This time she was doing photos of the winners.
Happy birthday to Anna … was nice to see Chris Faye and Roberta Wallace Cable both doing camera duty at the function. Paige, Russ and Erik Talvi were all hard at work and David Penhallow did a great job as the event host. Anna has been having a lot of birthday celebrations, but Sunday one is the real deal since she was born on Sept. 17, 1906.
And since Roger Cable wasn’t on Papa‘au (they race again, tomorrow), he had a chance to talk about that killer first turn at last week’s race.
Russ was also working Monday when Lt. Gov. James Aiona Jr. visited Kilohana to present Tom Tannery, Kaua‘i Mayor Bryan Baptiste and the YMCA group with a check for their Kaua‘i ‘Ohana facility … think about it, in less than a week, more than $3.6 million have changed hands at Kilohana.
Donna Schulze was getting excited because George was going to try out his new knees at dancing. She said they’re going to bring music to the doctor on George’s next visit so they can dance for him.
OK, ‘nuff said … it’s time to wind up for Waimea and the volleyball games out there.
