Kudos to Victoria and Steve Franks of King’s Chapel and all of their ohana on hosting not just one, but two Easter Egg hunts where more than 14,000 colorful eggs were strewn (those volunteers got this thing down pat!) just before thousands of keiki were let loose. It’s a shame that Victoria and Steve’s daughter was battling a bout of bronchitis and missed seeing the results of the Easter program she authored and even pre-recorded in anticipation of her pending illness.
Mahalo to the Rev. Ryan Newman and his All Saints’ Episcopal Church and Preschool ohana on hosting the first Clean Feet and Cold Water (it’s a good thing it didn’t happen the same time as volleyball so Wayne Doliente could participate), which was set against the backdrop of Maundy Thursday. And, of course, mahalo for all the information on Easter and the history of why it is one of the important observances for the church.
Everything started a couple of weeks ago when Nelson Batalion, John Constantino and the Kauai Community College Student Activities Council did their first egg hunt coinciding with a Movie on the Lawn event at the college’s gazebo lawn.
And, for the last-second effort, Koloa Landing Resort has the Easter Bunny out from 9 a.m. with an Easter Egg Hunt at 10:30 a.m., the Ohana Christian Fellowship (mahalo for letting the Multiple Sclerosis Sunset Stroll “borrow” some of the facilities) has a lunch with an Easter Egg Hunt, and the Kauai Marriott and the Courtyard by Marriott have petting zoos until 2 p.m., according to Ed Kawamura.
Happy Easter, Kauai!
