    Girl Scouts Amber Mayne and Rikku Burns of Troop 616, Kapa‘a, watch as Mr. Boo checks out papa’s order of Girl Scout cookies Saturday during drive-thru sales at Wailua Shopping Center

The signs worked, girls!

Girl Scouts Amber Mayne and Rikku Burns, from Troop 616, Kapa‘a were wondering if the signs they placed along Kuhio Highway were effective Saturday during drive-thru cookie sales at the Wailua Shopping Center.

The Scouts were treated to an almost-constant flow of cars seeking cookies from beyond the Internet, including Mr. Boo who, in addition to getting one each of all the girls’ available flavors, even left them with a generous “support local!” tip.

The girls had planned to set up at the Coconut Marketplace following the Wailua Shopping Center gig to capitalize on the Saturday night drive-in movie. In the meantime, if you know your ZIP code, visit gshawaii.org/cookies for the cookies closest to your ZIP code and, more importantly, when they are scheduled to be there.

Kudos to Kelvin Moniz (he’s healthy!) and the East Kaua‘i Lions, the Kaua‘i Lions Club, Alaska Airlines and the King Kaumuali‘i Elementary School ‘ohana on a great food distribution for the Hanama‘ulu school. They even had extra coupons in the event some were “lost.”

Leona Perez was juggling the food distribution and a game at the Eastside Basketball League, and Vonn Ramos was able to squeeze in the distribution and still check out Mike and Wendy Martinez’s new office (mahalo for the macaroons from Sweet Spot. Gotta check online, Marynel Valenzuela said. And the bento and goodie bag!) that’s in the same building as the Kaua‘i United Way (did we make the $500,000, Lynette Medrano-Stine?) in the professional buildings near the old Kaua‘i Athletic Club and old Kukui Grove 4 Cinemas in Lihu‘e.
