    The residents of the Samuel Mahelona Memorial Hospital get help from the Kauai Divas and Dudes in lining up along Ke Ala Hele Makalae, Saturday during the 10th Kauai Mayor-a-thon.

Alexis Guariguata of the United Kingdom and Sweden told Kenny Ishii he was glad he came to Kauai instead of going to Maui like his friends suggested. Alexis was helping Kenny (you know the Philippines Islands Hawaii Islands bicycle club was going to be there, too!) with the bicycles (yes, Dr. Randy Blake and Tommy Noyes were there, too) for all those people who took in the 10th Mayor-a-thon.

Josie Pablo got her Kauai Divas and Dudes (mahalo to Joe and Sue Fuetz of South Carolina who was helping daughter Leigh Fuetz with the Kauai Divas and Dudes!) involved to help with the residents from the Samuel Mahelona Memorial Hospital who have also made the effort to enjoy the breakfast grinds (great job, Mark Oyama and the Contemporary Flavors ‘ohana!) as well as the open air for the past 10 years!

OK, moving on, Brian Atendido was taking in the toro nagashi hosted by Rev. Kosen Ishikawa and the Kapaa Jodo Mission, Sunday at Wailua River. He made friends with Rev. Kohtoku Hirao of the Waimea Shingon Mission so bon dance is on his schedule for this weekend.

And don’t forget to visit Sherri Sanchez Holcomb at the Kauai Marriott Resort and Beach Club’s annual charity craft fair which runs, Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network. How many bento lunches, Chuck Brady?
