Rescue tubes in governor’s chamber

Melinda Uohara of the Kauai Chamber of Commerce public relations committee said there are only a few tables remaining for the Kauai Lifeguard Association's 4th Wave Celebration. Dr. Monty Downs and Andy Melamed are shown with the display board for KLA, a new Chamber member, during the New Member Showcase, Thursday at the Chamber's 2nd Quarter Membership Meeting at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa.

We’ve all enjoyed seeing rescue tubes on our beaches and we’ve rejoiced in the lives that have been saved because of them and the Samaritans who have used them to rescue people in distress. However, we never expected to see them in the governor’s chambers!
