Happy birthday to Clammie at the 7-Eleven in Lihue, who got the day off on New Year’s, and mahalo to Daisy at Kauai Veterans Memorial Hospital (congratulations on getting the Kauai New Year’s baby!), who helped coordinate coverage of the new 2019 arrival. Mahalo too, to Faith Campbell of Wilcox Health for making sure their new arrival (texts work well!) was not going to be forgotten.
Finally, mahalo (and congratulations!) to Chanc Dean for texting the photo of the happy family!
Kudos to Lance Segawa and the Hawaii Health Systems Corporation, Kauai Region on the opening of its Walk In Clinic Wednesday! Dr. Holly Poag left the clinic in the hands of Lead Nurse Brian Fern while she took a break from the clinic to man an outreach table that was set up at The Kauai Culinary Market.
Helaine Perel (Wednesday was the first day she wasn’t at The Shops at Kukuiula) said people were waiting for the clinic to open because she was getting inquiries ahead of the opening day, and Dr. Hoag said there were four people waiting when they opened the doors.
It was also nice to visit with Tiffany Lum (no, she wasn’t doing the silk-screening!), who was helping out at the Crazy Shirts (did you see the new “darker red” red-dirt shirts, yet? Or, how about the “volcanic ash?”).
