    Florence “Florrie” Toyofuku shows off her head lei to the folks at Moloaa Bay Coffee and Chocolate Saturday at the Kauai Community Market, a partnership with the Kauai County Farm Bureau and Kauai Community College.

Florence Toyofuku (when did she change her name from “Florrie?”) was busy making a head lei Saturday with the help of Elvrine Chow (she had Kealia Farms sunflowers for a night class) and Aida Koene during the Kauai Community Market.

Grandma Isobel Storch (she still calls her “Florrie”) said the little preschooler was getting excited about making coral from clay (exciting news for Katherine Muzik) with Katie Nalesere at “The Ocean Around Us” at Kukui Grove Center once the market closed at the Kauai Community College parking lot.

Marissa Tanji had a direct line for the Kimberly Hope McDonough violin music (Amy Chun and Char Jensen both said they have another musical lineup Saturday), and Ferdinand Dosono was busy cooking up a batch of bulgogi (Korean grilled beef), and Chef Dave Boucher had samples of his dark honey for tasting (it’s a reason to visit the market because the beekeepers change from week to week).

OK, time to get ready for Eat Dessert First (have you gotten your tickets for the Feb. 13 event yet?) with Edie Ignacio Neumiller (she was partying at the Kauai Filipino Chamber of Commerce installation at the Koloa Landing Saturday night).
