    Jeffrey Andres creates stylized kadomatsu arrangements at the Kauai Community Market at Kauai Community College Saturday.

Congratulations to Liz Hahn of Kauai Bettas, who was named the Ambassador of Bettas by Flare magazine, the official publication of the International Betta Congress! Liz finished the year as No. 3 breeder in North America. She was showing off her new developing crown tail plakat Saturday at the Kauai Community Market at Kauai Community College.

Elvrine Chow’s brother wasn’t doing kadomatsu this year, but no matter because Laurena Silva and Jeffrey Andres were going crazy creating the New Year’s arrangements at KCC, where Ellie Harrison of Zurich, Switzerland, had the honor of getting the last limeade from Alan Van Zee.

Ellie said it was worth coming halfway around the world to get that drink, and Melissa McFerrin-Warrack said a customer said something similar about Ursa Swift of Midnight Bear’s croissants.

Over at Kalapaki Beach, Jeff Haigh was trying to figure out how to keep the little shovels from messing up his developing sand sculpture while Tawny Coronel and Pahoa Naihe were engaged in a beach volleyball pick up game “to get exercise.”

Jessica Wright said they play volleyball every Saturday because it’s a good way to get to know people.
