    Jeannie Yukitomo, Taylor Shigemoto and Susan Murakami of Hawai‘iUSA Federal Credit Union came to the Kaua‘i Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours at the Puakea Golf Course to meet some of the neighbors to their credit union that enjoyed a soft opening Monday at Kukui Grove Center.

    Kala‘ea Lake, Liliana Estep and Taylor Garcia of Shell of Life in the Anchor Cove Shopping Center would’ve preferred to have masks, but settle on disinfecting hand wipes instead.

Yes, Kala‘ea Lake (he’s Laola Lake’s son who just moved back from Las Vegas), Liliana Estep and Taylor Garcia of Shell of a Life in the Anchor Cove Shopping Center would’ve loved to have face masks, but are thankful they are still able to get disinfecting hand wipes instead. They have the wipes close at hand while they work and are more mindful of hygiene in order to protect themselves from the COVID-19. Now, who’s got toilet paper?

Kudos to Mark Perriello and Fran Roach and the crews for a great Kaua‘i Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours gathering at the Puakea Golf Club and Puakea Grill, where Frank Cruz did a great job providing music from the lanai. Kudos, too, to Liz Hahn, who was making her first appearance as Kaua‘i Originals, representing her son Aaron Habermann (gotta check out that Green Flash), who had some of his artwork available.

Richard Dias said the Puakea chips (he was there when the first ones rolled out of the Puakea Grill. It used to be Ho‘okipa Cafe) are still there, and now you can get noodles all day. How about the hot dogs?

Taylor Shigemoto brought Jeannie Yukitomo and Susan Murakami from the Hawai‘iUSA Federal Credit Union to meet their new neighbors after opening the Kukui Grove Center branch (Jeannie said they’ve been busy distributing the Spring Reading Challenge materials) Monday.

OK, time to get ready for St. Patrick’s Day after all those cancellations, suspensions and postponements due to concern over COVID-19. Maybe it’s time for a green beer.
