Sarah Thompson said there will be some watermelons (and popcorn!) at Sen. Ron Kouchi’s booth when the Kauai County Farm Bureau opens Thursday evening starting at 6 p.m. — the signboard at the Elsie Wilcox Elementary School said there is no school Friday!
Kudos to Sarah (you have to see that fancy popcorn they’re going to ship to the mainland!) and the Beck’s Hybrids ‘ohana on delivering a bunch of Kauai-grown produce to both Kauai Veterans Memorial Hospital, and now, the Department of Education!
Hawaii State Farm Bureau President Brian Miyamoto said he’s coming back Thursday to help the Kauai County Farm Bureau people with the fair, and is bringing over some help from the state office to kokua, too. Hannah and James Huang said they’ve been “growing down” in preparation for vacation, but are sure to have stuff for the fair, and Bridget “Aunty Bridget” Orsatelli had her energetic 4-Hers moving stuff everywhere ahead of the Thursday opening.
Stephen Fujii (anyone got juniper specimen for sale?) said the Kauai Bonsai Club is having one of only four certified “sensei” coming to do demonstrations and talks at the fair, and of course, there are the EK Fernandez rides and midway (the Kapaa JROTC will be doing one of the games), and Mary Lardizabal will have her Kapaa Middle School chorus and ukulele band performing on opening night!!
