    Hostesses to the Chamber of Commerce Second Quarterly Meeting Cheryl Lum, Rose Ramos-Benzel, Sally Cravens, Morgan Lopez, and Liane Pestrella, Wednesday at the Sheraton Kaua‘i Coconut Beach where the audience was treated to a preview of Luau Ka Hikina.

Kudos to the Kaua‘i Lifeguard Association for all that hard work over the past couple of days to get the Keiki and Junior Lifeguards program underway — Dr. Monty Downs said he used to be able to do 100 compressions in a minute when he was in the Emergency Room! — and still have time to not only help with the Kaua‘i Independent Food Bank (yes, Kelvin Moniz, KLA was at the Chamber of Commerce Second Quarter General Meeting on Wednesday night, too!) food distribution in Anahola. They even donated to KIFB to help get more food for those who are looking at food insecurity…yes, even water counts as Michelle Panoke of the Hawai‘i Foodbank Kaua‘i was picking up a cartful of water donated by a shopper at the Pau Hana Market on Monday at the Kukui Grove Center!
