Happy Camper for Friday, March 2, 2018

    The Tsunami Taiko Chinese lion celebrating the Chinese New Year in February parades past the Kodomo no Hi displays set up by Pearl Shimizu and the Kauai Japanese Cultural Society for the celebration Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Kukui Grove Center center stage area.

    Jim Guerber commends Russell Fernandes of Kauai Veterans Express for his skill on the forklift after Fernandes jockeyed one of three new fermentation vats into the brewery at the Kauai Beer Company on Rice Street in Lihue.

Happy retirement to Wanda Fujimoto, who wrapped up a 44-year chapter of her life with the Bank of Hawaii (two years in Hawaii Kai and 42 years in Lihue!) Wednesday (she said she did not set her alarm Thursday).

Happy birthday to Sharon Lasker, who celebrates her special day today, and birthday greetings to Kathy Peters, both at the Regency at Puakea, whose birthday (yes, it’s this month, too) falls on the same date as Jennifer, who used to live in the “blue house in Kilauea.”

Congratulations to Anna Bazalar of the Kauai Barre and Soul place that completed its first classes this week. Kauai Barre and Soul is within walking distance of “the place between work and home,” and Jim Guerber was admiring the skill of Kauai Veterans Express driver Russell Fernandes on the forklift as they jockeyed a new fermentation vat into place.

Jim said they have two more vats in place as Kauai Beer Company (they’re helping with Chris Young’s Kauai Brewers Festival benefiting the Junior Achievement program coming up April 28 at the Poipu Athletic Club, and Scott Hailer had one of the few remaining promotional caps available) expands to include more space for people to enjoy between work and home.

OK, time to go check out Lesah Merritt and the Safeway store at the Hokulei Village, who joins the Girl Scout cookie market sales sites this weekend.
