Kauai Fire Department Chief Robert Westerman was feeling pretty good about being in the lead for the county’s food drive for the Kauai Independent Food Bank. That was only until the Planning Department showed up with its huge load of 50-pound bags of rice.
Cyndi Ayonon (she said the Kauai Filipino Chamber of Commerce will be awarding scholarships on May 6) said the Mayor’s Office still finished in the top five. Bobby Ayonon had to drive out to Kilauea and Princeville in the rain so left the excitement early. Lyle Tabata said Destry Shibuya is working on his Eagle Scout project, Saturday—early!
It was good to see Rhan Honjo (he said the Vietnam veterans are having a big event this year) and the Nawiliwili Yacht Club Race Committee following all these weeks of track and field competition. Pika the yacht dog was a new addition to the spectators and was more interested in his neighbor who had snacks than the race which took place under Kona (ever see boats stand still in water?) weather.
Don’t forget — the Kauai Museum May Day lei contest moves to the Kauai Marriott Resort & Beach Club Puna Court Monday (Tweety Juarez is getting excited about the Regency at Puakea moving its May Day ceremonies outside this year).
