Tell us about summer
We love our summers in Hawai'i and don't try to tell us our Islands don't have a summer. It's a subtle distinction, but it's there, in things like fresh lychee, later daylight hours and rush hour without as much rush.
Help us capture it by sharing your summer joys. What do you treasure or try to get done during the summertime? Call 525-8035 or write firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday. Please keep your responses to fewer than 50 words, and include your name, neighborhood and daytime phone number.
