Happy Dollars

Virginia and Bob J. are $10 happy because they went to the D5000 website and got some Rotary shirts on sale.  They are also headed to Kona to bring in the new year.
Art T. is $10 happy.  His background picture was a beautiful picture of the activity at the Halemaumau Crater.  He went very early in the morning and there were no crowds.  He also wants to wish us Happy New Year.
Marlene is $2 happy.  She got her COVID vaccine.
Paula U. is $10 happy.  She got to see her grandchildren on Christmas Day and looks forward to when she can spend some time with them.
Sharon S. is $10 happy.  They had a family gathering of 8 together for Christmas.
Junichi N. is $10 happy.  He and his wife have been in Japan for 3 weeks now and they are healthy.  Stuff is also cheap!  He got a head of cabbage bigger than his head and it costs $1.00.
Mary B. is $10 happy.  She is looking forward to 2021.  She ended 2020 by breaking her leg!
