Welcome back, Angela Wright, Jack and Susan Gardner and Katie Michelmore! They are the veteran volunteers who were here two years ago Thanksgiving to help build homes for Habitat for Humanity. On this trip, Angela got to work with Bob McNamara in laying out landscaping instead of just pounding nails.
Chala Vidinha made it to the radio station even after being at the Waimea Town Celebration … yep, he knew about the traffic, too. But it was still a good event with all kinds of fun (Ken Carvalho was there with his Fun and K’wazy Rides) and people like Ashley Ho‘okano were able to experience their first flip.
Stel Pimental was busy working her craft area and anxiously awaiting the arrival of Starla Marie (how come she never had a fancy name like that when we knew her?), and it’s not a Westside event unless Pat Pablo and her West Kaua‘i Methodist Church crew are on hand with those ono malasadas. Priscilla Badua forgot how busy it was during the Kaua‘i Museum craft fair. They even got Jose Bulatao to help them in the kitchen.
Leialoha San Agustin (how many recognize that team mom’s name for the Kalawai tournament winners?) was busy fishing out corn for St. Theresa School, and Mary Rapacon had her troops out raising funds for the Koloa Pop Warner uniforms … how many roast pork plates cover the cost? Leah Scovel wasn’t there because she was getting ready for the KSA soccer games Sunday … OK, a Nonaka on the Waimea team, a Scovel on the Kaua‘i team … anyone on the Kapa‘a team? And where do we sit when the KIF baseball season starts?
