The rains that dumped on Friday afternoon couldn’t stop Val Faford from Hale ‘Opio from continuing on with the Bully Free Concert and Youth Resource Fair at Kukui Grove Center (yes, Kauai Police Department was there, too) in the on-again, off-again heavy rain.
Val Faford of Hale ‘Opio was having a lot of fun processing the “passports” from keiki during the appearance of Uncle Wayne (and friend) who had the Island School preschool and kindergarteners cemented to the floor during the Family Fun Day at Kukui Grove Center Wednesda
Who would think that popcorn (it’s the gourmet kine!) would go with comic books and other collectibles, but Sumiko’s was doing a thriving business Saturday when Kukui Grove Center hosted a Spooktacular Saturday comic and collectibles swap coordinated by Bubbah’s Toy Box…the Cantu family

The Tres Amigos — David Johnens, Ramon Martinez and Johnny Mitsis — had no problem filling their event card Saturday while they welcomed the day in the cool (it helped with the morning rains, too) outside the Lihue Neighborhood Center, where The Memory Keepers (the county Agency on Elderly Affairs’ team in the Alzheimer’s Walk benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association) were hosting their annual rummage sale with Donna Olivas Kaohi (she couldn’t join Jim Jung and Grace Delos Reyes at the Kukui Grove Center children’s story hour), Johnny Yago (he was out of his active living gear), Rose Manago and Patricia Gonsalves.
Kudos to Josie Pablo and her ohana from both the Samuel Mahelona Memorial Hospital and the Kauai Veterans Memorial Hospital (even Steve Kline got to enjoy the festivities) on the biggest SMMH Breast Cancer Walk to date (this was the seventh year they’ve done this)!
