    Winona Steed, right, knows why the piece by artist Miza Sumida did not get selected for the 2019 ART Kauai exhibit that opens Friday at the Kauai Society of Artists gallery at the Kukui Grove Center.

    Vases wait for flowers for the opening of 2019 ART Kauai at the Kauai Society of Artists gallery at the Kukui Grove Center.

Eunice Burgonio (she was ‘the Greeter’ at the Lihue United Church of Christ’s Labor Day Breakfast!) said the Regency at Puakea (she’s almost like the ‘Fun Giver’ as the Activities Coordinator) is hosting a craft fair, Wednesday from 3 p.m. until the evening hours in observance of National Assisted Living Week.

This is a change from previous fairs where the assisted living and retirement facility used to have the event in the mornings, ending right after lunch. The change allows more people time to visit following work, or after picking up students from the neighboring Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School.

Kudos to Melissa McFerrin Warrack and David Sosner on the wide range of activities going on (Justin Pajella said the Red Raider homecoming parade had ironed itself out by the time it reached Jamba Juice, and Melissa got photos of a lot of ‘beauty queens’ during the Cover Search) at the Kukui Grove Center.

The doors to the space going to be occupied by the Ocean Discovery Center were open, but no one was there…and, is Joi Labok (her ceramic work can be seen at the Kapaa roundabout among places) who created Puhi for the 2018 ART Kauai going to be present when the Opening Reception opens the 2019 ART Kauai exhibit, Friday (do we have enough time for a few minutes before getting to the football game at Hanapepe Stadium?).

Finally, don’t forget the Elder Law Day, Friday morning presented by the Legal Aid Society at the Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall.
