Happy Camper for Sunday, July 5, 2020

    Kelvin Moniz of the Kaua‘i Independent Food Bank gets help from Demetrio Tolentino and Alicia Leong in loading the collection (130 pounds of food and more than $1,400 in monetary funds!) from the Contractors Association of Kaua‘i meeting, Thursday at Gaylord’s.

    The highest King Tide was on July 4, but the water levels were pretty high, Friday as the boat ramp at the Nawiliwili Small Boat Harbor is already under water as Mark Oyama waits on his passenger.

No big gatherings is the message officials encouraged for the Fourth of July as Hawai‘i records more new COVID-19 cases…great time of do those quiet neighborhood walks (Brian Atendido found a pueo, but had no camera, and what new safe beach did Sabrina Bodon find? John Feagans is still trying to get back from Japan — his new re-scheduled date is now in August!).

Mahalo Dick Olsen on the heads-up for the Kaua‘i Sailing Association Keiki Camp graduation (Carl Andersson was trying to get out on the water!) that filled the Nawiliwili Small Boat Harbor with keiki having a lot of fun aboard those Toppers! Kudos to Shale Shore and her Junior Leaders on the week-long camp on learning how to sail. Shale said we need to get back to where we can do those Easter Egg Hunts (on the water!) and the All Hands on Deck! regatta, again!

More kudos to Rae Hiramoto and the Gaylord’s crew for accommodating the Contractors Association of Kaua‘i who gave away seven scholarships, and collected 130 pounds of food and more than $1,400 for the Kaua‘i Independent Food Bank (yep, Kelvin Moniz had to work late, too) during their big meeting.

Barbara Green of the Kaua‘i Filipino Women’s Club was skillful enough to get Mayor Derek S.K. Kawakami and members of the Kaua‘i County Council to stop by and congratulate the club’s scholarship recipients (gotta make it happen just in time for pau hana)…how about the Terno Ball? Is it going to happen?
