It’s described as Christmas in July for Kalaupapa – the one day each year when a barge arrives carrying the settlement’s supplies for an entire year. Goods include pallets of food stuff, cars, large appliances, furniture, and construction materials and in the most recent trip, a new truck for our sisters who serve on the peninsula! The new truck replaces a much-used van. Its purchase was well-timed as there wasn’t a long time between buying it and getting it shipped on the barge!
