Happy Camper for Wednesday, November 16, 2022

Kudos, Lexi Jones and the Downtown Lihu‘e Night Market on hosting Danell Sugioka and the Project Vision (is masking the mobile hot shower like the O‘ahu unit going to help?) and FilCOM CARES as a preview of the two-day Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week event that takes place starting Wednesday at The Salvation Army Hanapepe Corps (they have free hot Thanksgiving meals coming up on Nov. 23, too!).

On the West Side, kudos to the Rev. Tomo Hojo, Ralph Fujinaka and the West Kaua‘i Hongwanji Mission on the 25th anniversary celebration of the successful consolidation of the three West Side Buddhist temples as a hedge against declining membership and the ever-increasing costs of maintaining separate facilities.

Miss those Kaua‘i Christmas Parades since the retirement of Ralph, Flo Tazaki and others, but Laine Griffith and the Kalaheo School Sunshine Express continue the holiday tradition by visiting Kukui Grove Center in Lihu‘e on Thursday with a preview of the school’s student-based production, at 6:30 p.m. (what great dinner entertainment in the food court area).

Amy Chun’s jabong tree is going off, and Louise Nguyem of San Jose, California, got to enjoy some of that bounty when she and mom Naly got to the Pau Hana Market (they’re launching a Holiday Recipe Contest with applications available on Nov. 21) early (the market opens at 3 p.m.).

And, don’t forget — Saturday is the Kaua‘i Handworks (has it been 43 years already?) craft fair that opens from 8:30 a.m. at the Kaua‘i Veterans Center in Lihu‘e!
