    Butch Keahiolalo shows Elijah Frank the ropes on installing lights on the monkeypod trees for the Festival of Lights which opens to the public, Dec. 1.

Melani Otani of Lip Sense lipsticks and Paparazzi jewelry (Sharon Sahara and Bernie Sakoda came to the Regency at Puakea craft fair specifically for that) will be at the Kekaha Elementary School craft fair from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Sheila Bradley of Usborne Books said she’ll be doing the Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School Media class craft fair which starts at 8 a.m. in Puhi. But, she’s really interested in hooking up with the Christmas Craft Fair coming up Nov. 25 at the Wilcox School cafeteria.

Congratulations to Sharon Lasker and her crew at the Regency at Puakea on hosting their annual craft fair (Chantal Zarbaugh is a real pro at shopping — she even had an assistant to help her carry stuff, and Carol Manera Texeira is now a mother to some hens and chickens, among other succulents). Haunani Pacheco (how’s the Mayor of Kilauea doing?) came to check on her daughter-in-law’s progress with sales of the Kalihiwai Ridge plants (the air must be really good for those healthy air plants).

Kudos to Elizabeth Freeman who got her corps of volunteers to start working on the Festival of Lights which opens to the public with opening ceremonies at 6 p.m., Dec. 1 (Lois Ricciardi noted the Kauai Chorale needs to be in place by 5:45 p.m.).

    Isn’t it too early for x-mas lights? That is 14 days more.
