Kudos to Elyse Litvack and The Mokihana Club on a great scholarship fundraising concert featuring Keola Beamer (how many of you remember when they used to play at Territorial Tavern, or Arakawa’s?)!
It was nice to see the support demonstrated by the Kauai Community College nursing students who were scholarship recipients, and what a great lineup of things to bid on at the silent auction!
Of course, since the event was at the Aqua Kauai Beach Resort, Nelson Batalion was working the event along with Sandy Ka‘auwai.
It would have been nice to check out the E Kani Kapila event with Kimberly Hope (nope, Aowl Owen is performing Sunday with The Talbott Brothers (they’re from Oregon!) as a benefit for the old camp at Koke‘e).
Need things to do this weekend?
Check out the Anahola Beach Park on Saturday for the 9th annual Anahola Prince Kuhio Day Celebration from 11 a.m. when the late Hosea K. Lovell will be honored for his contributions as a community leader and advocate of the Hawaiian people.
And since we’re on the road to Waimea (isn’t it volleyball?) Friday (leave early to avoid that pau hana traffic!), stop by the Talk Story Bookstore to meet Judith Burtner and her new book on the Robinson family.
