Happy Camper for Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2016

Mahalo to Uncle Les Gushiken (no wonder he couldn’t go to the Mahelona Hospital Christmas luncheon) for the ono kalo bread at the Kalo Festival held at the Halulu Fishpond.

Kudos to Stacy Sproat Beck and the Waipa ‘ohana on a great event that allows people to check out the Halulu Fishpond. Denise Wardlow was busy helping with the silent auction that had some great incentives from the Westin Princeville.

Karen Sherwood was busy with her craft tent (her son produces some great t-shirt art, too) that featured her dying prowess, including indigo (she said if you use the whole plant, it’s teal) products.

Mahalo to Ed Kawamura and his ‘ohana on a great mochi tsuki Sunday (a week ahead of Christmas). Ed said there was no time to do mochi after Christmas because of work, so they had to do it early.

Gerald Ako and the HGEA crew also worked on their annual kadomatsu (hurry and get yours before it sells out) to benefit the Charles Kendall Scholarship. Becky Komaki got to do kitchen duty so everyone got Portuguese Bean Soup (Ken Morikawa and his ‘ohana were distributing their own version at the Waimea Lighted Parade where it hit the spot in the cold, windy, rain).
