    The St. Theresa School group is ready to take a Safe Route to School walk Wednesday from the Kekaha Neighborhood Center.

    Bev Brody and Lee Steinmetz, far left, join the St. Theresa School flag-raising Wednesday following the school’s first ever Walk to School event as part of Catholic Schools Week.

Bev Brody has been in the health-service business for 118 years (you never know what kind of stuff you learn at Walk to School), according to an e-correspondence she got from Linkdin. Congratulations to Principal Wendy Castillo and all those St. Theresa School people for hooking up with Bev and Lee Steinmetz to host their first Walk to School event!

In the meantime, there is more excitement coming up when Jean Souza (great to have you back from furlough!) and Malia Nobrega join forces with Melissa McFerrin-Warrack in hosting the second OceanFest that opens with a blessing this evening at Kukui Grove Center, near the play court area. The Ocean Around Us will feature the life-like, inflatable, walk-in humpback whale throughout the weekend.

Saturday, OceanFest shifts to Hawaiian with bingo in olelo Hawaii and the free screening of Disney’s “Moana” in the Hawaiian language.

And, it’s not over because on Sunday (yes, it is National Football League Super Bowl Sunday!), Melissa said the Chinese lion will welcome the Year of the Boar starting at noon (how much time do we have before kickoff?), and don’t forget the Souper Sunday event with Susan Pittman and the special soup created by Chef Johnny Saguid of Gaylord’s that benefits the Lihue Lutheran Church Mobile Munchies program!
