Happy Camper for Friday, April 7, 2017

What was on Art Umezu’s mind?

He was so engrossed in what he was doing, he never even stopped to say aloha, said Glenna Ueunten during the Tuesday sunshine market at the Historic County Building.

Dan Fort said Florrie (Toyofuku) is still MIA, and Terry Philips said the cauliflower (they don’t even have these types at the supermarket) was gorgeous.

A meeting with Edie Ignacio Neumiller and the Kauai Status of Women was a perfect reason to stop by and check out what’s new at the sunshine market which now has shortened hours of 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in front of the Historic County Building.

Don’t forget to check out the Sequential Transition to Education in the Public Schools on Saturday at the Kukui Grove Center. Jeanie Odo said she’s been doing this program for the past 15 years, helping young families get their keiki ready for the public school experience. Cathy Shanks has been doing this from the time she worked with People Attentive To Children, and Marissa Sandblom has made sure Grove Farm takes care of all the workers who have information, many interactive, on getting the keiki ready for school.

And there’s still time to check out Juno Apalla and the Mother’s March (used to be the March of Dimes) that starts with registration from 6:45 a.m. at Lydgate Park.
