Happy Camper for April 15, 2016

Weylon Ruiz (you remember him from the Kauai County Farm Bureau Fair?) said staying home was driving him crazy so he had to come out and help set up for the St. Theresa Carnival after school Tuesday.

He brought along his friends, Barak Aviguetero and Layne Santiago, and between the three of them, had a blast in the carnival refrigerator, now we know why they had to make room for the ice and hot dogs. They said they like event chair Duke Lang and pretty much were like puppies, following the chair around the grounds.

Nakili Kauwe (ask her about how you use a nail, the pounding kine, to “cut” duct tape) came with her parents to help, and Camille Hesapene said they got people from all over helping.

Mary Jean Buza-Sims (her husband Robert was helping with the Hanapepe Seniors beautification project in the morning) said this is the last time she’ll be enjoying the carnival, and Ursuline Munar said this is the last time people can come out and talk story with the principal who’s been there for 10 years.

Camille Hesapene said people can also visit with Mary Jean when they host the school’s May Day program on May 7.
