    Makepa sounds the pu as students from Kanuikapono Public Charter School prepare to lead the state anthem Saturday during the Prince Kuhio Day celebration presented by Ka Hale Pono at Anahola Beach Park.

    Coach Alroy Enos is surrounded by his family and government dignitaries who agree that Enos possesses characteristics close to Prince Kuhio Saturday during the Ka Hale Pono Prince Kuhio Day celebration at Anahola Beach Park.

    Coach Alroy Enos is honored for having characteristics close to Prince Kuhio Saturday during Prince Kuhio Day festivities at Anahola Beach Park.

Kyla Koerte (she put in a full shift at DejaVu Surf Hawaii before helping Teresa Caires with Girl Scout Troop 823 market sales) said there was a leprechaun running around Kukui Grove Center Saturday passing out “coins.” The leprechaun was joined by the Easter Bunny (it’s got a lot of appearances scheduled before Easter on April 1), who has a photo setup similar to Photos with Santa at the mall … and, you can also stop by for the free social media creation by Jenny Ihara-Takase at DejaVu, too.

Pauline Ibia (anyone try that free Walmart.com pick up yet?) said they had corned beef and cabbage for the food booth (and the boys) at the Kauai Interscholastic Federation baseball games, where the aroma of that St. Patrick’s Day food was teasing Keith Burgess to have food “just for fun.”

Kudos to La Contrades, Kaliko Santos, Lady Ipo Kahaunaele-Ferreira and all Ka Hale Pono people for organizing the Anahola Prince Kuhio Day celebration, where Coach Alroy Enos was honored for having characteristics similar to Prince Kuhio.

The tribute drew a crowd of supporters including County Council Chair Mel Rapozo, who had to rush off to spend time in the dunking booth at Rob’s Good Times Grill and then host his fundraiser Sunday! Kelvin Moniz missed the Lions Walk For Sight (used eyeglass recycling!), but scored some energy bars (homemade with aloha, no less!) from someone who said they had once used the services of the Kauai Independent Food Bank, and now, it was time to return the favor.

Don’t forget to check out all the Prince Kuhio celebration activities this week on the Southside!
