What a crazy weekend — Kim Coco Iwamoto came down to spend time with grandma at the Lihue Hongwanji bon dance (the nishime plate was the first to sell out, and the flying saucer lines were manageable) before handing out lollipops at the Kauai Pride Parade and Festival (did you see the feather eyelashes?).
Happy birthday, Mark Perriello, who celebrated his special day with nearly 400 people at the Kauai Chamber of Commerce second quarter general membership meeting presented by Corteva Agriscience and featuring Hawaii farm-to-plate food at the Kauai Marriott Resort & Beach Club Thursday.
One of the priceless things about the Samuel Mahelona Memorial Hospital beach outings (Happy birthday, Efrenia Pagulayan of Kauai Veterans Memorial Hospital!) is the appearance of Gary Smith and the Kilauea Social Club (gonna have to settle for postage-stamp-sized photo here), who volunteers with entertainment that everyone can enjoy!
PUHI — The presence of Swim Kauai Aquatics founders, Coach Ro and Mary Davis, added to the excitement of the SKA summer meet that wrapped up June 8 at the YMCA pool. Seven swimmers topped the meet with perfect meets, or best times in all of their respective swims.
WAILUA — Samuel Mahelona Memorial Hospital resident Phyllis Goias said it was great to feel the sand, and Kauai Veterans Memorial Hospital resident Efrenia Pagulayan was modest in celebrating her 89th birthday Tuesday at Lydgate Park.
NAWILIWILI — The to‘au and eels were biting, Sunday as more than 65 keiki anglers up to 13 years old took to the shoreline of the Nawiliwili Small Boat Harbor for the annual Father’s Day Keiki Fishing Tournament presented by the Nawiliwili Yacht Club.
