LIHU‘E — With World Oceans Day celebrated today, Kukui Grove Center went with the marine theme in many of its planned activities for everyone in the family last weekend.
LIHU‘E — Pa‘u riders have always been integral to regal parades such as the King Kamehameha Day celebration, Aloha Week celebration and more.
Saturday was a day for foot bling, as Zonta Club of Kaua‘i members Cyndi Ayonon, Rebecca Carnate (she was even helping East Kaua‘i Lions Club prexy Janice Bond and John Baxter with sales of the Mama Lucy’s plate-lunch tickets!) and Edie Ignacio Neumiller made a day out of visiting the Kaua‘i Society of Artists Washed Up Marine Debris Art Show — World Ocean Day is Tuesday! — where Wynde Thomas was supposed to have a piece on exhibit.
LIHU‘E — The unveiling was not a big production Friday. But the honor the Go for Broke Soldiers commemorative stamp represents is big, as Norman Hashisaka, a veteran with the Military Intelligence Service during World War II, represented WWII veterans, including those from the 100th Infantry Battalion and the 442 Regimental Combat Team from Kaua‘i.
Kudos to Ashton Varner and the County Housing Agency on coordinating the outreach services for the Shelter In Place residents at the Salt Pond Beach Park. The effort was overlapped by the Kaua‘i Fire Department conducting water lifesaving exercises, and county Department of Parks & Recreation worker Simplicia Tugade making sure the beach was clean before the visitors arrived.
LIHU‘E — Does your ZIP code start with 967? If so, that qualifies you for a new, statewide, keiki feeding program made available by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Summer School Food Service, Hawai‘i Child Nutrition Program and a dedicated team of statewide food access coordinators.
HANAPEPE — Grace Meek of Project Vision said they left the HieHie Mobile Shower at home Thursday during coordinated outreach services being offered to the homeless community at Salt Pond Beach Park.
LIHU‘E — In an effort to increase awareness of sea turtles during this important time of a turtle’s life, and to enlist the public’s help with proper human behavior around sea turtles, The Kaua‘i Ocean Discovery coordinated the most recent Grab-&-Go Ocean Learning Kits on the topic of sea turtles.
What? Melissa McFerrin-Warrack (she was thrilled to see Sue Kanoho enjoying the U.S. Air Force Band of the Pacific musical ensemble Small Kine!) was enjoying a bowl of pancit from the Pau Hana Market Monday at Kukui Grove Center in Lihu‘e to wrap up a long weekend.
