Happy birthday to Joy Kouchi who spent part of her special day, Tuesday, helping husband Ron who was part of the political forum at the Waimea Theater.
Kudos to the Westside business association for hosting this great event, and all of the candidates who crossed over the bridge to attend.
But before then, Matt Humphreys had a big smile as he, Doug Sears and the rest of the Grand Hyatt Kaua‘i ‘ohana hosted beneficiaries from this year’s Visitor Industry Charity Walk.
But it didn’t stop there as Matt, Doug and other Hyatt people dropped in on the Koloa Early School (Robin Jumper even offered to do photos) for the Jumpstart Read for the Record (the orange shirts looked great) event, Thursday.
Diann Hartman said this is the second year the Hyatt’s done the reading event and this year, the group was joined by Corduroy and Lisa, the main characters in the selected book.
Phil Baclayon was at the kickoff for the Holomua After School program at Kapa‘a Middle School, and so was Tim Delavega and the crew from Channel 26. They were having a ball with Lt. Gov. James “Duke” Aiona and the school’s student council officers. But Phil had to rush off to basketball before taking care of the Kapa‘a High School basketball furniture sale this morning at Rosa’s in the Arzadon Industrial Park.
Doors open at 9 a.m. and Phil said they’ve got a lot of good furniture.
OK, time to stand in line at the Lihu‘e Christian Church bazaar and then check out some of the goodies at the Friends of the Lihu‘e Library book sale (it runs through 2 p.m., tomorrow if you can’t make it, today).
