Theresa Koki celebrated her return from Honolulu by attending the Zonta Club’s “Eat Dessert First” event Friday. Kaua‘i mayor Bryan Baptiste did the same, and Lt. Mark Scribner must’ve been happy directing desserts instead of traffic at parades.
Hats off to Robin Savage, according to one patron, this year’s event chair. For some of the Kapa‘a High School students, it was a busy day as Stephanie Kawamura was at the sports leadership summit (congratulations to Bill Arakaki and his committee on a great event!) during the day and still had energy to lug trays of cake through all that people traffic. The Kapa‘a High School Junior ROTC cadets are real troopers, having to direct people while the evening sprinkles came down in the cold (!) wind.
Meanwhile, up at the Bernice Hundley, Greg Gonsalves was at the summit and still made it back to host the OC16 crews and the basketball game (somebody must’ve messed with Aunty ‘Net because she was nowhere to be found, or did she go home with the varsity crowd?).
Lynn and Gerald Muramoto are getting ready for Valentine’s Day with their orchids all on sale outside the Kaua‘i Museum (Dale Rosenfeld was enjoying herself at the “Eat Dessert First” event). Lynn told me about the arrival of Lorraine Minatoishi Palumbo and Michael Schuster who were checking out the Japanese architecture show going on now at the museum.
‘Nuff said. It’s off to check out the KIF basketball championships and see what kind of food they have on sale.
