Evy Huijskes of Holland is a guest of Lion Sandi Sterker. Sandi said Evy was here for the Lions Youth Camp, and now that she graduated high school, came back to spend time here before college starts.
Gary and Elaine Saiki (more Lions) were fully involved with the West Kauai Hongwanji, Hanapepe Temple, bon dance which opened the Kauai bon dance season.
Carol Yotsuda (she’s a Kouchi girl) was still talking about lucking out with the National Donut Day (she was one of the lucky ones who didn’t have the lines), and Jill Kouchi was talking about Masami remembering driving the van to bring Japanese School students home after school. Their parents were former ministers at the WKHM Hanapepe Temple.
Galen Kaohi (his grandmother, Aletha Kaohi, was the librarian at the Hanapepe Public Library during the times Masami was driving the van of Japanese School students) was hanging with Sandi’s group, and another retired librarian, Karen Ikemoto, met up with Ora Tashiro (Friends of the Hanapepe Public Library) for some food before the dancing started.
This week’s bon dance moves to the Lihue Hongwanji on Friday (anybody got the dinner menu?) and Saturday, where doors to the food, games and country store open at 6 p.m., and dancing starts at 7:30 p.m.
