Lynn Tilker of Del Mar, California, said she’s no fool — she waited a couple of hours and was born on April 2. Happy Birthday, Lynn! She and Lori Wamstad (different from Laurie Nakama) flew in from California for the weekend, just to help at the MS Sunset Stroll at the Kapaa Beach Park.
Kudos to Cynthia Edralin, who remembers the first MS Walk (and Roll!) organized by Mel Rapozo (he had a cold but came out anyway) because his brother has MS and he started the walk 18 years ago. Cynthia, who got tremendous support from Chico and Lance Edralin, who produced a CD with proceeds benefiting multiple sclerosis, said she’s been walking for just 15 years.
Kelsey and Kirstein McDevitt and their family from Spokane, Washington, are on vacation and, after hearing about the Sunset Stroll, joined up with Laurie and Sharron Weber and Lorraine Wichman (happy belated birthday, March 28), and even Katie Beer, to walk (er, run?) to help fight MS.
Congratulations to Denise and (Coach) Z Zumwalt on the opening of The Flip Flop Shop Saturday at Kukui Grove Center. They’re located right next door to Jamba Juice and Genki Sushi and has slippahs (that’s Ron Wiley’s word) that are even approved by the lifeguards … actually, a percentage of sales benefit the Hawaii Lifeguard Association, and Mandy Martinez said they come with a guarantee.
