The First Monday blog for the week

So far, I am getting little feedback and I even came across one that said, "It will never work." But I have to try. I believe "we" the residents can help each other in this entire Wai'anae Coast.

"The Lord loveth a cheerful giver.  He also accepteth from a grouch."

To begin with, I should help the number one contributor of information in this coast and that is Westside Stories, the monthly publication. If we help them, we will be helping the rest. Should be pretty simple. They cover pretty much of what is important on the Wai'anae Coast.

Most of their information concerns activity during the day and they are doing a terrific job of informing the residents. I expect to fan a few sparks in the direction of "after hours," defining it as after dark. Not that much difference except that we will never cover as much ground as they do.

Second and the most regularly social part of the "fun" department is the weekly Farmer's Market. More people are going to meet there and buy and sell in the good old fashion social way. They have entertainment frequently which adds to the social atmosphere. Their emails also furnish much information about the Waianae Coast. If we help them we will also be helping the people that they help.

Meanwhile. I have my neighbors down the street. A fine bunch of people.

Third: we have to make contact with the famous WCCHC, (Wai'anae Coast Comprehensive Health Center) because they also do much for the entire Coast community. We help them we will be helping the people that they help. I hope to make contact with them soon and get some feedback for our blog.


          Every Tuesday from 10am-1pm at the Wai`anae Coast Comprehensive Health Center's breezeway, Hawai`i Foodbank certified vendors will be selling Senior Farmers' Market coupon-eligible fresh produce.  EBT/SNAP benefits also accepted.  Market is open to all.  Senior coupons and EBT benefits can also be used at the Wai`anae Farmers' Market every Saturday at Wai`anae High School from 8am-11:30am.  For more information, please call 697-3599!

And a big project on my agenda will be a personal one and that is to get people interested in line dancing and partner dancing and eventually having a Saturday night hoedown at the Wai'anae District Park. They have the most beautiful dance floor in West Oahu but from the records, it has never been used for dancing. Nice? I would like to see people dancing on the Wai'anae Coast.

"I Went To Your Wedding" by Patti Page

And yes, we will need all the help we can get for the benefit of all and the only rule we have so far is, "Nobody has to do anything." And for now we shall limit "Our Coast" from Nanakuli to Makua Valley.

This Agenda has not been engraved on stone. With time and help from others it will form by itself into something worthwhile. Yes, I know blogging is something completely new to the Coast but it will not be for long.
