Elizabeth Makizuru of the Kauaibots said it was good to have spring break because they need to work on their robot before the March 30 competition at the Stan Sheriff Center at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
Elizabeth said they got sleeping bags for the San Diego competition so they could even sleep over, if necessary. Caleb Hartshorn was asking if he could stay until 10 p.m. Friday.
Kudos to Gen. Mary Kay Hertog, Johnette Chun, Charlene Dorsey and Barbara Gusman on coordinating the great get-together, workshop and fellowship event for women in the Armed Forces. Johnette said it’s a good seed effort and more women will come out.
Ed Kawamura Sr. was totally enjoying himself — especially on that special Pono Neuro chair (even veteran Paula Schultz and Barbara got to try it) that had him relaxed while everyone else was listening to the guest speakers.
More kudos to La Contrades and her Anahola Prince Kuhio Day Celebration ohana on a great event (mahalo to County Councilmember Arthur Brun, who got rid of his roast pork plate after his kids did not want it), and Madie Jimenez of Mailelani said it was a not-bad event. Bradford Kaeo had a couple of National Maritime College of Technology home-stay students in tow as she “put money back into Kauai.”
