Maureen Nuccio-Hiraga said she might do the Bark for Life Saturday because she works the afternoon shift. Diann Hartman said the Bark for Life will be at the Hokuala property with registration starting at 7 a.m.
Kelvin Moniz (he’s still excited about officiating last week’s preseason football game in Hanapepe) is more concerned about the Kauai Independent Food Bank’s 23rd anniversary bash (tickets are really reasonable) where Rowena Cobb said the program will be kept light so people can just enjoy the food, entertainment, and prizes. Hope Leona Perez shakes that bug so she can be part of the festivities, too.
Kudos to Terri Kaniho and all the Kauai credit unions who turned over more than $32,000 to the Kauai Independent Food Bank from its Fifteen in Fifteen food drive. Credit for this success goes to the people who supported all those Friday markets and special sales (who got Keith Uyeno’s Korean blanket?) to help raise funds.
Mary Paterson said people can support education when they attend Savor (one of the first events to be held at Po‘oku Meadow), a wine and chocolate “epicurean experience” benefiting education and youth scholarships from the Kauai North Shore Community Foundation. It starts at 6 p.m. on Saturday.
