Kudos to Marilyn Matsumoto and the Lihue Senior Center for hosting a great political coffee hour! Arthur Brun (have you checked out his fancy pen?) said he can’t believe that Aaron Uyeda was his Pop Warner coach back in the day. JoAnn Yukimura said 80 percent of the voter turnout (on Kauai) were kupuna.
Kudos to Nelson Batalion and all the Kauai Community College Student Life and ASUH-Kauai for hosting the Club Day (remember how Kelvin Moniz got the newest Lion Club going during last year’s event?).
This year, Lisa Murphy Allison was going crazy with her dice, the Starbucks gift cards going first. Taylor Shigemoto was trying to kasasa, and Rebecca Lenarth (mahalo for the Malama Pono blue pens) was looking for something to eat. Chef Martina Hildorfer was waiting for her class to end to go check out the wheat berries at Great Harvest Bread Co (seems like a lot of people heard Stacie Chiba-Miguel on Ron Wood’s FM97 show).
Congratulations to Stanley and Christine Camara on the new bakery and cafe that opened Wednesday from 6 a.m. (gotta go before 6 p.m. Friday because they close on Saturdays) next to Payless Shoes (Judge Kathleen Watanabe got a box for her grandchild’s diorama after buying socks).
