Happy Camper for Wednesday, June 1, 2022

Ryan Bosma has it all — a Kobe Bryant (and all the other 2015-16 Lakers, too!) autograph on a Lakers’ basketball with a letter of authenticity to boot; Mike Tyson autographed boxing gloves, and much more, with sales proceeds going to the Make A Wish Foundation.

You just never know what you can find on a stop to the Summer Pop Swap! Ryan said he’ll be at the next Kukui Grove Center Pop Swap, so you just gotta keep your eyes on that calendar.

Jean Souza and the Kaua‘i Ocean Discovery will be celebrating World Ocean Day Saturday with a honu (most popular temporary tattoo) theme.

Mark Jeffers and The Storybook Theatre of Hawai‘i will be at the Dolphin Touch Wellness Center in Kapa‘a on the actual World Ocean Day, Wednesday, June 8. Check out the website,, for more details.

Kudos, Frank Cruz of Cruz Control (no, the music was provided by the Sunset Swing Band) for doing a great job with the sound (did he make the Pau Hana Market?) at the first in-person Memorial Day observances (great job, Aida Cruz!) at the Kaua‘i Veterans Cemetery, where Ed Kawamura Sr. was able to attend in-person because the Shinnyo Floating Lantern was a “virtual experience” again this year.

Mahalo, Sarah Tochiki (yes, there will be a Veterans Day Parade, too!), for making Taps Across America happen (Darryl and Leilani Low said they were coming, but the weather was too nice).

OK, this Saturday has a mess of things going on in addition to the World Ocean Day (yes, the Kaua‘i Society of Artists gallery is open from noon). There’s the funeral for Jose Bulatao in Koloa (where you gonna park, Randy Francisco?), the Pride Parade in Lihu‘e, and Sgt. Major Keith Castaneda will have the Waimea High School JROTC helping at the Friends of Kaumuali‘i event.
