    Zombies from Aloha Dance Studio go through a version of “Thriller” Friday night when Freaky Fridays opened for a month’s run at Kukui Grove Center.

    The zombies from Aloha Dance Studio were out in force Friday when the 2018 edition of Freaky Fridays was unveiled before surprised shoppers at Kukui Grove Center.

Kudos to Tiffany Dick and the Aloha Dance Studio on opening the 2018 edition of Freaky Fridays at Kukui Grove Center (Tiffany said one of the zombies even scared Melissa McFerrin-Warrack!). The event is a unique Halloween event helping raise funds for the Aloha Dance Studio off- island competitions while providing shoppers at the mall a nice change of pace.

Freaky Fridays include a community haunted house that opened on the same night with a list of nonprofit organizations that benefit from the haunting experience, and Melissa is already waiting for Monday when the play area gets blessed.

Kudos to Kauai High School volleyball program represented by Coach Kehau Regidor who demonstrated a great gesture of sportsmanship when she and the team took time out to publicly wish Shyann Freitas a speedy recovery between the Kauai Interscholastic Federation volleyball games, and kudos to both coaches and players on one of the most thrilling volleyball games of the season!

Congratulations to Josie Pablo, who organized and coordinated all those Hawaii Health Systems Corporation (they even made it to the Career Expo Saturday!) personnel and community volunteers on a great cancer walk on Ke Ala Hele Makalae Friday. Bev Brody may have left her boots at home, but that did not stop her from getting excited about what was taking place on the multi-use path. She even wants Catherine Paleka to connect for the Rice Street block party.
