Happy Camper for Monday, April 22, 2024

Teya Silva was just one of the more than 60 vendors taking part in The Beach House Craft Fair on Sunday near Prince Kuhio Park where the high water mark from last week’s flooding clearly marked the height of flood waters.

Teya, a dancer with Halau Ka Lei Mokihana O Leina‘ala and Kumu Hula Leina‘ala Pavao Jardin, was selling cookies as a fundraiser to help getting to the annual Queen Lili‘uokalani Keiki Hula festival that takes place on O‘ahu later in July.

“I’m not a soloist because Kumu did not name me,” the 8-year veteran dancer said. “I’m just one of the group of 22 dancers, who are going to the Keiki Hula. The halau will be competing for solo titles in Master Keiki, Miss Keiki, and Kaikamahine.”

In addition to the hula fundraising cookies, Silva also had the unadvertised Diamond Bakery cookies not sold in stores as a fundraiser for community volleyball.

Madi Jimenez of Mailelani’s (they’re planning on participating at the Wailua Bay Creators Fair next Sunday at the Hilton Garden Inn) said Halau Ka Pa Hula O Hinano with Kumu Hula Troy Hinano Lazaro has more than two dozen vendors planning to attend the May Day Is Lei Day Celebration on May 1 at Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Hall from 1 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The halau will be presenting its May Day Is Lei Day showcase from 7:30 p.m.

Frances Calapatia got help from her son Jayden and his family in getting some Beach House supporter wear on the tables for shoppers along the beach front marketplace. Now, Edwin Vea said he’s working on getting some food from the restaurant.
