Yes, it’s Back to School Bash Saturday from 9:30 a.m. (that’s when the Fun Fair starts! The registration line forms even earlier!) at the Kukui Grove Center.
Elyse Litvak (Kumu’s Cupboard is also getting ready for Back to School!) and Sheila Bradley (she was one of the crafters at the Kauai Hospice Concert in the Sky) will be manning the “bookstore” where the first 500 keiki (you have to be present to register) get a free book. Elyse was saying how she would’ve gone to First Saturday had she known there was Ethiopian food (it was so good Noel Brooks had a clean plate!) … now, she has to wait until the August event.
Debi Thompson’s daughter came to the Concert in the Sky because there is no Kumu’s Cupboard on the Big Island where she is an elementary school teacher … maybe she’ll be around to check out the Back to School Bash where more than 1,800 school students will get a bag of school supplies.
Denise Roberts and Joycelyn Arford (she’s the Prize Goddess, and yes, Shaka Burgers is supposed to open this week at the Central Pacific Bank parking lot) didn’t lose a step from the Concert in the Sky to prep for the big Saturday shindig, and if there is no Senior Softball at the same time, Ron Wood said he wouldn’t mind helping, too … Melissa McFerrin-Warrack of Kukui Grove said if Miss Hawaii United States wanted to help, she would welcome the effort, too.
Remember, keiki and parents, you have to be present to claim your free bag of school supplies.
