Yes, even Santa (aka Phil Worwa — he’s wrapping up his staycation in paradise) has a face mask when he dropped in on the Kama‘aina Days and Orly’s Patisserie (did you see that cake valued at $1,500) Saturday at the Hokulei Village Shopping Center in Puhi.
Kaua‘i Police Department Chief Todd Raybuck didn’t fool around Tuesday during the Bikes on Rice (it only happens once a month) family ride. He brought his entire ‘ohana, including the two family dogs (great dog carriers made for bicycles). Ashton Varner discovered her VIP bike is a veteran from the Nancy Budd days before she upgraded to a higher level of equipment, and was Dr. Randy Blake one of the group leaders?
East Kaua‘i Lions Club President Janice Bond said she was the teacher for both Jaye Gayagas-Youn (she was guarding her cereal kingdom) of the Sheraton Kaua‘i Coconut Beach, and former county Public Information Officer Mary Daubert, who appeared for the first time to help with food distribution for the employees of the Waipouli resort.
Tiana Ramos is missing not having basketball on our courts (watching virtual is all right, but can’t beat the real thing) when she did the photo-bomb thing with Lihu‘e Pharmacy Pharmacist Kevin Glick (mahalo for the help with the flu-shot artwork) and all those pretties.
John Feagans (he’s still trying to get back to Kaua‘i’s Westside but the flights keep getting canceled) is probably going to spend the holidays in Japan. He got a head start on the winter by getting his snow shovel in the car and installing snow tires before the Oct. 1 deadline.
Kudos to the Center for Spiritual Living ‘ohana on surpassing its $25,000 goal during the CSL telethon (how did Charles Woolfork get fellow emcee Patrick to wear that dress?) fundraiser Saturday, where RoseAnne Jones was taking a break from setting up ART Kaua‘i (it’s set to open today from noon at the Kaua‘i Society of Artists gallery at Kukui Grove Center) to man the phones with Sue Wood.
Thank you, Nannie Ann Apalla, for letting us know that Seth Womble (do you realize there’s a Seth Womble just around the corner at the Kaua‘i Beer Company?) and Trysen Kaneshige are working on a mural that will grace the wall of the M. Tanaka Store building on Kalena Street in Lihu‘e.
