  • Stacie Chiba-Miguel / Special to The Garden Island

    Were you in that line leading to the opening of Orly’s Patisserie Tuesday morning at the Hokulei Village Shopping Center in Puhi?

    No face masks needed when enjoying meals with social distancing at the collection of food trucks in Koloa, along Weliweli Road and anchored by Eden Coffee.

Were you in that line to Orly’s Patisserie when Orly Yadao opened the doors to his shop Tuesday morning (like real early — 6:30 a.m.)? Chantal Zarbaugh had plans to grab some of the goodies before heading to the Kaua‘i Government Employees Federal Credit Union Kilauea Branch, which had plans to open for business that day too.

Meanwhile, congratulations to Tess Shimabukuro (she had the best security in place) and the Gather Federal Credit Union who opened its Koloa branch Monday in the shadow of Sugar Mill Coffee (although you couldn’t beat the aroma of a fresh pot coming from Eden Coffee), where Terri Kaniho had Show Aloha Challenge T-shirts available. Hurry, only got to Sept. 11 to support those meals for kupuna.

Chucky Boy Chock (great job leading those Menehune during the COVID-19 shutdown) said the Kaua‘i Museum website is acting up, so people need to call 245-6931 to schedule reservations for tours (definitely worth the two hours) when the museum opens its doors to new, special, COVID-19-shortened schedule of hours and days (Lyah Kama-Drake can still fit in her KKOA kupuna meals delivery and lead one of the tours too).

And, there’s only one more day remaining to take in the extensive quilt variety offered by the Six Island Quilters — Julie Fregeau, Cindy Halasey, Jeni Hardy, Lea Ingram (Carol Pratt said Lea takes David Pratt’s old shirts and turns them into quilts), Lesley Morris and Toni Wass — before the mid-year (got delayed because of the pandemic) exhibit closes Thursday at 6 p.m.
