Shelley Gerardo and Lillian Vierra said “The Joy of Christmas” lights display at the St. Raphael Church in Koloa is on from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through December.
Marina Pascua was checking out the outdoor displays before starting work on the inside of the church, and Father Arlan Intal was excited about creating that fancy tower, and the operational ferris wheel that are part of the display that is scattered throughout the St. Raphael property.
Kudos to the St. Raphael ‘ohana for coming up with this display that is a part of its fundraising for the church’s roof and windows.
Kudos, too, to Gerald Hirata, Carla Dusenberry (she has a “new adventure!”) on a great Bodhi Day service for the Kauai Buddhist Council.
Gerald always likes to link history with the current, and in addition to the Gannenmono and plantation life exhibits, said the Bodhi Tree planted next to the World Peace Kannon Statue is from India in the same area where the Buddha was Enlightened.
OK, today is The Culinary Market, a partnership with the Kauai County Farm Bureau and The Shops at Kukuiula where Rabbi Michoel Goldman and Zisel Goldman will be doing potato latkes during the Chef’s Demo and the menorah will be lit at sundown.
