Kaua‘i Police Department Chief Todd Raybuck (yes, he’s an East Kaua‘i Lion!) and Coach R-O-B-E-R-T Kubota of Pono Market talk story at the East Kaua‘i Lions Club’s partnership with King Kaumuali‘i Elementary School in Sunday’s spaghetti fundraiser at the Hanama‘ulu school.

Kaua‘i High School’s Vilbert Oligo, center, points out Paul Nigel’s anti-glare treatment while they watch schoolmate Dillon Fulks play a singles match in Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation tennis on Saturday at the Po‘ipu Kai tennis courts. Nigel, who plays doubles for the Raiders, will be with the team at the Waimea High courts this weekend.

Congratulations, Principal Jason Yoshida, the King Kaumuali‘i Elementary School staff and the East Kaua‘i Lions Club on a great spaghetti plate event! Roy Nishida said they couldn’t do it without the help of the Wailua Meat Co., which donated more than 200 pounds of beef for the sauce, the Kaua‘i Kookie bakery, which did all the work with the garlic bread, and the EK Lions Club incoming President Crystal Bargayo, who footed the bill for the paper goods, and the EK Lions who took care of the corn and water. Guy Higa had all those Service Rentals coolers for the water, and Stephen Fujii was going crazy collating all those tickets. Kaua‘i Police Department Chief Todd Raybuck said the event reminded him of the fun and service from the Pastors, Police, and Platters event during the pandemic.
