Happy Camper for Monday, June 29, 2020

    Carol Wood, manager of Coconuts Fish Cafe in Kaua‘i Village Shopping Center in Waipouli, where they enjoyed great participation during Teachers Day and graduation specials, is ready to welcome diners for dine-in or take-out daily from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

    Hanalei Taro and Juice Co. is in the house. Brad Nakayama gets out of the kitchen and to Puhi Park Produce Saturday. It is Hanalei’s Taro first appearance at the market presented by Grove Farm.

    Kaua‘i Police Department Sgt. Darla Nonaka, Pastor John Cabelo of New Hope Lihu‘e and KPD Chief Todd Raybuck celebrate the final Police, Pastors & Platters drive-thru Saturday at the Puakea Golf Course in Lihu‘e. Over 6,000 free breakfast meals were served up during its nine-week run.

    The Kaua‘i Fashion Week team did not do virtual Saturday when the team volunteered at the final Police, Pastors & Platters drive-thru breakfast giveaway at Puakea Golf Course in Lihu‘e.

    Meka Gonzales, Claudia Leong and Lena Leong enjoy the shade while greeting diners to the Police, Pastors & Platters breakfast drive-thru giveaway Saturday at Puakea Golf Course in Lihu‘e.

Kudos to Pastor John Cabelo, Kaua‘i Police Deparatment Chief Todd Raybuck and all the ‘ohana at New Hope Lihu‘e and KPD for hosting the Police, Pastors &Platters drive-thru breakfast giveaway the past nine weeks at Puakea Golf Course in Lihu‘e (yes, Fran Roach was out distributing bully-free stickers, too).

Pastor John said New Hope Lihu‘e returns to in-person church at the Kaua‘i Veterans Center Sunday, but he’ll think about doing the drive-thru meal distribution at least once a month.

Marynel and Rommel Valenzuela had their Kaua‘i Fashion Week (they couldn’t host the red-carpet event this year, but did a virtual meeting because Sue Kanoho was missing the event) team helping along with Phil Worwa, who had his new (not enough time yet to apply the “Santa” ID) red Jeep pickup. Phil is getting excited about Robert Medeiros allowing them disc-golf play at Kukuiolono Golf Course and Park in Kalaheo from this Sunday, July 5 (they go trout fishing this weekend) following the same Father’s Day ‘ohana event.

Kudos to Brad Nakayama for getting out of the kitchen and bringing Hanalei Taro &Juice Co. back over the bridge. He made his first appearance at Puhi Park Produce Saturday (even county Managing Director Michael Dahilig was checking out the place), where Greg Askew of Ono Pops was excited about an Ono Pop fan donating the locally-produced treat to the Kuhio Medical Center staff under the Ono Pops’ 50% donation program.

We might have missed the health-care workers’ campaign at Coconuts Fish Cafe at Kaua‘i Village Shopping Center in Waipouli (have you checked out that ice cream place?), but Carol Wood said they have other specials to either dine-in or take-out daily.

OK, back to the pop-up market at The Shops at Kukui‘ula. What’s the Keawe Roots’ take-out special?
