It’s a good thing we have two mayors — Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. is expected to be at the Waimea Town tree lighting, Saturday evening, said Penny Young, and Mayor-elect Derek Kawakami is scheduled to be at the St. Rafael’s lighting festival in Koloa at the same time, said Brenda Sameshima. OK, so which one do we choose to go to?
Elizabeth Freeman opens the Festival of Lights, also on Saturday (same time, too) at the Historic County Building, and isn’t this First Saturday (last chance to get your Christmas goodies, here!) hosted by the Kapaa Business Association?
Happy birthday to Naoko Ogata (all of 101 years!), the oldest resident in the Hawaii Health Systems Corp., Kauai Region, and mahalo to Roy Miyashiro for the mochi to munch on. Mahalo, too, Sara Miura of Deja Vu Surf Hawaii — Christmas shirt? Yes!
