    Lindsey Bosshard brought a sampling of Kaua‘i Hemp Co. products to the farmers’ market and craft fair Friday, coordinated by the county’s Kaua‘i Made program in the Office of Economic Development and the Sheraton Kaua‘i Coconut Beach in Waipouli, at the hotel.

    “He must be life-sized,” said Cayetano Butay, who celebrated Pokemon Day by bringing his Pokemon to the pop-up collectible station Saturday next to GameStop at Kukui Grove Center in Lihu‘e.

    Hali‘i “Rai Rai” Keamoai is excited about picking up her birthday cake Saturday at Kaua‘i Bakery in Kukui Grove Center in Lihu‘e.

Happy birthday, Hali‘i Keamoai (she said “call me Rai Rai”), who celebrated her excitement at picking up her birthday cake Saturday at Kaua‘i Bakery in Kukui Grove Center in Lihu‘e (yep, they still had guava malasada).

Hali‘i’s unicorn outfit should have qualified her for the Read Across America dress-up and the special book premium, and Gretchen Pascual was true to her word of helping out at the busy event where Taylor Shigemoto and Morgan Lopez announced the special reading challenge for spring break: Read eight books and earn a free book from Hawai‘iUSA Federal Credit Union, which sponsored the giveaway of 117 books (and more. Application forms available for books at the Hawai‘iUSA outreach office near Times Supermarket) in the event that was booked solid on the first day.

Melody Pigao of the Kilohana Clothing Co. (check out that Kaua‘i Coffee bag that headlined the farmers’ market and craft fair at the Sheraton Kaua‘i Coconut Beach in Waipouli Friday) was still recovering from the Friday-night event at Eastside property). Jack Goodman made it a point not to miss the entry day for the Kaua‘i Society of Artists Spring Show (it’s opening Friday, and you’re going to be in for a treat!).

Girl Scout Kaua‘i Director Angela Hoover said to order your cookies early, because GS Troop 775 (they’re from all over, Sabrina Bodon!) already ran out of Thin Mints during last week’s outing at the Wailua Shopping Center. The girls were able to re-stock in time for the pickups Friday at the GS Kaua‘i Service Center off Rice Street in Lihu‘e, near the Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Hall, but once the flavors are gone, it’s a long wait until next year’s season. The key to ordering is gshawaii.org/cookies.
