OK, the Kauai Visitor Industry Charity Walk is history, but people are still buzzing about all the fun, good food, and that Rubbah Slippah Drop (if Joyce Vidinha wasn’t so busy with tabulating all the collections, she would’ve gotten a slippah, too) presented by the Hawaii USA credit union!
Mother’s Day (kudos to Dave Sosner, Melissa McFerrin-Warrack of Kukui Grove Center on providing another Mother’s Day experience option!) is also pau (Harvey Maeda is already revving up for Father’s Day!). Jolene Spence and the Garden Island Trollers are also sharpening up their pencils for a boat (as opposed to shoreline) fishing contest to celebrate Father’s Day.
Now, it’s on to bon dance (Josie Pablo and the Samuel Mahelona Memorial Hospital, look for Elaine Morita’s photo on the wall, open the bon dance season Friday with their annual bon dance for the hospital’s residents when dinner plates go on sale from 5:30 p.m.).
Saturday morning, Jean Souza and the Hanapepe-Eleele community association invite people to the Kauai Community Disaster Preparedness Fair at the Hanapepe Armory from 9 a.m. where there is a wealth of information on what to do if a disaster strikes. One of those participating groups is the American Medical Response, whose Cody Bonilla had his two-wheeled version of response in action at the charity walk.
And Emily Medeiros reminds women soccer players of the 7th annual Ladies Adult Soccer Breast Cancer Awareness event that takes place June 1 at the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Sports Park (it’s near Lydgate Park) with registration starting at 4 p.m.
