Lisa Lida did it again. She had a chorus performance Thursday and following that was able to get results of the 3 G’s Nation (Cecil Gee was officiating) to the paper. No wonder she’s one of the “Gee’s Table” girls.
Tristan Rosare was doing scorekeeping duties Thursday and graduating Friday night along with Lauren James. So, how many of the graduates came out to play ball on Saturday?
On the subject of graduations, mahalo to Melissa Nobriga for making sure all the clearances were at the gate. Kaua‘i police officer Mark Ozaki said K-PAL Flag Football starts this Saturday. Mark and officer Ken Carvalho (he did a good job with the D.A.R.E. graduation) were on duty at the Kaua‘i High School event.
Raymond Duarte was doing sound duty at the Kapa‘a High School exercises and Herbie Kawamura and Ralph Nishimoto were in charge of photos. Annette Hashimoto was so busy being proud she didn’t have time to think up any new words.
Our graduates were fortunate in having such great keynote speakers — “Coach” Bill Arakaki in Waimea, Governor Linda Lingle at Kaua‘i, and Congresswoman Mazie Hirono at Kapa‘a. Kudos to all and the leaders of the committees that plan the event.
Lyle Tabata and Myles Uyesono of Boy Scout Troop 148 didn’t have any time to breathe since they were helping with parking at Vidinha Stadium and were already anticipating the “Taste of Hawai‘i.”
