Happy Camper for Friday, March 29, 2019

Mahalo to Janice Akiyama (and Chef Jason Sunada of Kokoro!), the good folks at FM97, and KQNG Radio Group (when is Ron Wiley’s anniversary?), the readers, and everybody who kept the Happy Camper’s birthday a secret!

Happy Camper for Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Kathy Kovala is still rocking and rolling after all these years. She was hosting an open house (Barbara Gusman took the opportunity to try some Oki’s Box Lunch fried chicken) where she demonstrated and talked about the rock-and-roll technique she uses with watercolor…she’s got a series of classes this week at the Kauai Society of Artists gallery at Kukui Grove Center.

Kudos to Moani Tolentino (she’s the new Hawaiian culture director at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa!), who got help from Sandi Quinsaat in hosting a great, two-day Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole (the state and county are closed Tuesday for the Kuhio holiday) Celebration (we need to call it a “ho‘olaule‘a”)!
