Judy Lenthall had a new look when she showed up at the Salvation Army mahalo luncheon. Judy said she was inspired by Makana Duncan’s gesture of giving her hair to Locks of Love and cut her hair and sent it in memory of Kaua‘i Mayor Bryan Baptiste.
Sandy Higa of Kmart (you can’t pass that place without Marlena Bunao’s malasada pulling you to the booth) had the second pallet of school supplies ready for the Kaua‘i Board of Realtors who are concentrating on taking care of the middle and high schools. But beyond getting ready for back to school, she is excited about the two new categories for the store’s annual shoreline fishing contest this weekend.
And it’s going to be a busy weekend as Teddy Blake wants more people to get involved with Hapa Road, one of four events which open the weeklong Koloa Plantation Days celebration.
Out on the Eastside, Fig Mitchell (mahalo for the O‘ahu updates) and the Kawaihau Community Little League is gearing up for the state Majors tournament which opens Friday afternoon with two games at the Main Diamond.
Janice Bond was thrilled to be able to get her houseguests Justin and Brandi Spaleny to the Kapa‘a Hongwanji bon dance (Roy Nishida was in charge of the new towels). The Spalenys are back from Iraq and were spending quality time with 14-month-old Adrienne who lost little time getting acquainted with other toddlers at the event.
