    Capt. Rod Green and Barbara Gusman open the Toys For Tots campaign Friday at the Kaua‘i Veterans Center in Lihu‘e after corporate policy forced them away from Walmart. They are accepting new, unwrapped toys for needy young Kauaians each Friday from 5 to 8 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. The last scheduled drop-off is Monday, Dec. 21, but Green says donations will be accepted beyond that date, and that toys can be dropped off at any fire station.

    Holly Walker represents the Friends of the Children’s Justice Center, which helps the Zonta Club of Kaua‘i with its 16 Days of Activism, collecting supplies for the YWCA of Kaua‘i women’s shelter Saturday at Kukui Grove Center in Lihu‘e.

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!
