Kudos to Terry-Ann Moses and the Friendship House ohana on hosting the annual employers’ appreciation luncheon at the Kauai Marriott Resort &Beach Club (and congratulations to the Kauai Marriott for hosting the event each year). Kurt Nagata did a fabulous job as master of ceremonies (what do you call bears with no teeth?), and it’s always a pleasure to watch The Friendlies perform.
Kelvin Moniz was able to break away from the activities at the Kauai Independent Food Bank, and kudos to Debra Thompson, who started only recently at Friendship House.
Kudos to all those young people (high school students) who were working hard to help others — the Kauai High School Leo Club at the KIFB for packing the Backpack meals so Leona Perez and Kelvin could tend to the federal workers involved in the partial government shutdown, and the Kapaa High School Key Club for helping at Laundry Love presented by the All Saints Episcopal Church and Preschool (welcome, the Rev. Ray Sheldon, who will be at All Saints through March), and kudos to Geoff Shields and David Murray on starting this free laundry program for the fourth year!
