Hats off to Michelle Swartman and the Maryl Group for being so generous with coordinating a visit by Miss Hawai‘i Pilialoha Gaison to Koloa School! You had to be there to fully appreciate the response of the students who got a glimpse of her.
And kudos to Debbie Lindsey, and all the Koloa School staff for being such wonderful hosts to our queen.
More pats on the back to Theresa Koki and the county and all the organizers on the latest Youth Summit that was held Monday! It’s always great to see how everyone comes together to help each other … even Leah Scovel was there, although she couldn’t make it when Aleigha Scovel got to have lunch with Miss Hawai‘i.
Moana Taa (she started out with the Keiki Injury Prevention Coalition) was there along with Lt. Mark Scribner of the Shattered Dreams program, and with all the vendors present, Rebecca Smith had to be there since it involved youngsters. Val Saiki was there, too, and said they were a little too late to do the cigarette butt cleanup for this year’s Earth Day.
Therese Jasper has been stocking up on UH wear, but Jolynne Uyesono said they still have a good supply left at the KCC Bookstore … if you drop in now, you can see how their new computer operates. With the UH graduation taking place on Mother’s Day, how many Kauaians will be doing Mother’s Day brunch on O‘ahu?
Happy Children’s Day, Kaua‘i. Or, more traditionally, Happy Boys Day!
