Kudos to all those Waimea Alumni and Friends Foundation on coordinating that amazing corn sale. Alvin Kyono said Hartung Brothers grew all (25,000-plus ears!) the corn, and even threw in a promotional banner the WAFF could use at Hofgaard Park in beautiful downtown Waimea.
Yes, even the Waimea Town Celebration Ambassador of Aloha Malama Award recipient Basilio “Bunga” Fuertes was helping move all those bags of corn. Russ Hasegawa (he was with the corn party. Lions Naoko Ho and Kay Hill did not let lunch hour go by, serving it up at the Waimea Neighborhood Center) said WAFF is so lucky to have friends like Hartung Brothers, and “the shrimp guys,” Kaua‘i Shrimp.
Mahalo, coach Leo Anguay, for getting some corn over to Ron Wood at FM97’s Puhi studio so the town guys could enjoy some of that sweet corn. Sally Cravens said it was really sweet, and good!
More kudos to Toni Wass, Lea Ingram, and all those quilters from the Kaua‘i Guilt Guild, and Nene Quilters on a great opening day for the Kaua‘i Quilt Show that continues through Feb. 23 at the Kaua‘i Society of Artists gallery in Kukui Grove Center in Lihu‘e. Dang, that Darth Vader quilt sold real fast.
Cheryl Brady (What? The quilt wasn’t ready yet?) said to wait until Sydney Brady gets her quilt into the show, and who’s that artist who came up with the “Ruby Grapefruit” miniature? Didn’t just use ruby (for Vicky’s Fabrics’ 40th anniversary) material, used the name as well in addition to adding external leaves.
OK, time to go check the kickoff of the NFL Super Bowl LVI. Don’t forget, it’s Valentine’s Day and the Pau Hana Market at KGC Monday.
