Class of 1933

The East Room at the Pagoda Hotel will be the setting for the gala 70th Reunion for this class on November 4, 2003. This class meets regularly every year with attendance of about 120, including classmates and spouses and friends, but for this important milestone event, hopes to double that number.

For information. call Carol (Nishimura) Oda at (808) 596-2117 or Hinayo (Fujii) Shichida at (808) 941-3672.

Class of 1938

July 26, 2003 has been selected as the date for the 65th Reunion for this class and the place chosen is the Pagoda Hotel. The following persons may be contacted:

  • Ralph Kaiura: (808) 732-3132
  • Ethel (Michimoto) Kiyonaga: (808) 988-6792
  • Edna (Wlson) Rennoe: (808) 536-8058
  • Hilda (Mock) Pang: (808) 734-7536

Class of 1943

Several classmates are planning a get-together in 2010 to celebrate our turning 85. A no-host lunch at Chinn's Buffet Restaurant on Waialae Ave, across from Kahala Mall in Honolulu, has been suggested. In order to make timely reservations, we need to have input from classmates as to their interest in attending.

Also, we would like to know which month would be convenient for most classmates.

Please contact Maile Lorch Duvauchelle at (808) 833-8842, by email to, or by mail to 5122 Likini St. #213, Honolulu, HI 96818. 

Class of 1946


Once again, the format for the reunion will allow all attendees to have a relaxing and fun time with fellow classmates, spouses and friends.  No lengthy speeches or program is planned which will give classmates more quality time to get together with each other.  Of course, refreshments and pupus will be served as usual for their enjoyment and upon their early arrival.

A nice change is happening this year, in that we are going to have a sit-down served, complete lunch service which should make it more comfortable and enjoyable.  Honolulu Country Club Special Events Coordinator Dean Horikami and Executive Chef Elden Rodrigues have graciously consented to our request and will be offering each person the selection of one exquisite entree of their favorite dish from three choices (Steamed Basa Chinese Style with Soy & Ginger with rice or Chicken Florentine with Mornay Cream Sauce atop Spinach with Mashed Potatoes and Seasoned Vegetables or Vegetarian Pasta with Julienne of Fresh Vegetables, Shiitake Mushrooms and Basil in Olive Oil over Penne Pasta).  We look forward to another successful and memorable reunion especially with this wonderful change in our menu and lunch service.  


Our tradition continues with Talk Story 11, Las Vegas at the California Hotel, from in on Sunday, September 20, 2015 and out on Friday, September 25, 2015. We are happy to inform you that a group of classmates and spouses have stepped forward and are committed to having the annual Las Vegas Reunion. This very close-knit group, although small in numbers (35) but huge in heart and loyalty continues to have a jolly good time and are willing to keep our Fall Las Vegas Reunion going for many years to come.  All classmates, Families and Friends are invited to join them for another rousing time.  Further information will be mailed out in August 2015 to only classmates who respond that they are planning or interested in attending TS11.  Please don't miss this opportunity to hook up with this fun-loving-happy-go-lucky bunch, so be sure to send in your form. 

For all and further information on both reunion functions, please contact Edmund Leong 373-3882 or Ernest Uyetake 595-4057.  For air travel, rooms and meals including Vacation-Hawaii Hawaiian Deals contact Gail Matsumoto 220-6890 or 623-1674.
