Hats off to Sandra Tedder and her committee on doing such a great job with the Kaua‘i Hospice “Concert in the Sky” that went off with a big bang even with the rains coming down just before the fireworks. That event was so busy, Rey Montemayor had help from Aaron Uyeda and Bill Countryman in grilling up that ono-looking chicken while down the way Chef Ed Mizuno and his Sheraton Kaua‘i staff had some real ono chili kalua pork.
Tina Brun had her ‘ohana in tow doing the Caesar salad again, and by the time she was ready for the ahi wrap, everything was sold out.
Larry Ephan and his family were at the Kekaha event and said that was a big hit as well. Hats off to St. Theresa School principal Mary Jean Buza (does Lita Buza read this from the Mainland?) and her committee for doing a bang-up job with that event as well.
Larry Manuel did a great job refurbishing the old kerosene stove that was part of the Plantation Days tent. They even had a cement pot mold for a 6-inch high (who said it was an ice cream maker?).
More kudos are in order to Pat Baniaga (how did he juggle the Bronco state championships and the Kaumakani Reunion on the same weekend?), Mark Domingcil and Dondi Viquelia for a great tournament.
This week, it’s Jean Souza’s turn, as the Family Ocean Fair is this Saturday at the Kilauea Lighthouse. Go early and catch the shuttle because there’s no parking at the lighthouse.
