Kilauea is not very close to where everything was taking place Saturday, said East Kaua‘i Lions Club President Janice Bond, who was waiting on the club’s newest member, County Councilmember Felicia Cowden, to make an appearance at the Lions Celebrate America’s Birthday flag-waving (we needed Ed Keopuhiwa’s ‘ukulele — he’s got a Kamaka — rendering of “God Bless America”), where Dickie Chang (he said they’ve got a huge Chinatown on O‘ahu shindig in the works for after this COVID-19 thing), Harvey Kinoshita and Ron Garlie were competing for who had the biggest flag, and Roy Nishida had one of those clear, plastic, full-face masks created by the Cyber Lions (they’re from O‘ahu, too).
