    Shoppers seek out treasures in the Lihue Neighborhood Center that is filled with items for the county Agency on Elderly Affairs Memory Keepers’ rummage sale benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association.

    How come Donna Olivas’ “together” (second from left) is not highlighted? She takes her place with the county Agency on Elderly Affairs Memory Keepers (and where is Johnny Yago’s T-shirt?) at the rummage sale to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Lihue Neighborhood Center.

The Memory Keepers from the county’s Agency on Elderly Affairs walked in the Alzheimer’s Walk last week. But their efforts continued as the group hosted its last big rummage sale (what was the oldest version of the Nu Wave cooker?) Saturday at the Lihue Neighborhood Center, where Johnny Yago was getting in his exercise by sweeping the floors, Rose Manago was busy folding clothes (ever see a Sonic shirt?), and El Doi was running all over the place. Patricia Gonsalves said they will next be at the Grove Farm Swap Meet so people have to keep reading for details.

The event was over in time for the Saturday opening of the Kauai County Farm Bureau Fair, where Brian Miyamoto, the Hawaii Farm Bureau executive director, was busy keeping track of the Kapaa High National Honor Society, or was it the Kauai High School Key Club?

The Kauai High School Key Club had members over at the Mokihana Aquatics Fun Meet (how did Janice Bond manage to be there and still make it to the farm fair with Coach Shige of Pearl City Aquatics?) with Coach Orlando “O” Anaya, and the Waimea High School JROTC (who is that new first sergeant?), which did colors as well as helped with hospitality.

And there were the Waimea High School Interact Club who helped with the Hawaii Medical Service Association Keiki Parade at the fair (Denise Roberts said it takes a lot to blow up those inflatables), and Randy Yokoyama didn’t know what kind of pineapple he had — it just happened to be a blue-ribbon winner.
