So, not only was the moon full (it’s called the “beaver moon” because the Indians knew the beavers would go to their lodges for the winter because it’s the last full moon before winter), there was an eclipse (called a “penumbral lunar eclipse”) that started around 9:30 p.m. and lasted for about four hours. What a way to end the month!
Ernie Domingo spent all his money (good thing he had lunch first) contributing to the Friends of the Children’s Justice Center (Holly Walker said we all take care of the same children), Catholic Charities of Hawai‘i, the YWCA of Kaua‘i, the Zonta Club of Kaua‘i and the Girl Scouts of Hawai‘i Saturday after he found out they were collecting as well as distributing resources for people who help prevent domestic violence against women.
Kudos to Laurie Ho and Amy Chun for advocating for Small Business Saturday (Aletha Thomas of Monkeypod Jam said they had little fanfare about the event), where they supported the Puhi Park Produce for the fruits and vegetables for the Kukui Grove Center display, where Bev Pang came to help. And who wanted the longan after visiting the barber?
Laurie and Amy return Monday for the Pau Hana Market starting at 3 p.m. in the Sports Authority parking lot.
Kudos, too, to Emilia Knudsen for being a real trooper, working Friday (she could do this because Alaka‘i O Kaua‘i is on a hybrid schedule because of the increasing COVID-19 case counts) and Saturday at the Kaua‘i Society of Artists gallery, where she is planning to raise money for keiki Christmas presents (if they can’t get food, they can’t get presents).
