Kudos to Darryl Low and the Coconut Marketplace on the re-opening of the twice-weekly farmers’ market Tuesday that featured a new concept in food trucks — the Y. Hata &Co. truck that brought some of its Value Plus Kaua‘i Store “restaurant packages and bundles” to the public, led by Paula Jepas, the Y. Hata Kaua‘i manager.
The market that opens from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. was not the only excitement, as Chris Machorek, Jaye Gayagas Youn, Barbara Gusman (she’s a East Kaua‘i Lion, too) hosted the Sheraton Kaua‘i Coconut Beach furloughed associates to a hot meal and food package, where the East Kaua‘i Lions and Zonta Club of Kaua‘i worked in tandem to help serve the goodies. They did the same last week at the Kaua‘i Marriott Resort &Beach Club, where Chuck Brady and Paul Toner spearheaded the effort for the Kaua‘i Marriott associates and their families. Kudos on the heart-warming teamwork.
David Sosner and Melissa McFerrin-Warrack of Kukui Grove Center (nope, the dine-in area at the food court is still waiting on the green light, and face masks are mandatory in stores and outside) are excited about today, when Macy’s comes back when the doors open at 11 a.m., just in time for graduation shopping and the Memorial Day weekend.
Congratulations to all the high school (and yes, even the Kaua‘i Community College) graduates on getting through this chapter of life, and best wishes for a great road ahead.
Stay safe and well, Kaua‘i.
