Lesah Merritt of Safeway made it just in time for a photo in front of the Kauai Marriott’s Christmas tree display set up in the resort’s porte cochere and Suzette A. Racca was worried about getting stage fright while performing her mele she wrote about Niihau in 2007.
Kudos to Dave Jordan, the vocational coordinator at Friendship House, and all the Friendship House ohana on hosting employers of Friendship House and community members with disabilities to a great mahalo banquet during this special time of the year!
Ed Bales will always have a Christmas, said Elizabeth Freeman of the Festival of Lights who put Ed’s Christmas tree on display in time for the residents of the Samuel Mahelona Memorial Hospital to see during their special outing to view the display of lights (once people catch a glimpse of Santa, you can’t close the doors) … Jill Kosen said Ron got soaking wet (how big was that umbrella?) at Wednesday’s soccer game, and Kesomei Fonua (he’s been playing basketball since the fourth grade) and Teili Fonua have the same No. 22 jerseys for Kapaa High School’s junior varsity and varsity boys basketball teams. Now, is that sister from the fifth grade going to have No. 22, too?
Merry Christmas, Kauai!
