The 67th Year Reunion Weekend from April 26 to 28, 2013 was certainly "A Blast From The Past" for over 125 classmates, who with families and friends, celebrated their 85th Year birthday. Visiting the Honolulu Museum of Arts and the Doris Duke Shangri La Estate, lunch at the Tree Tops Restaurant at Paradise Park, a scenic Waianae Coast ride on the Hawaiian Railway Society train and entertained royally by the Prince of Hawaiian Comedy Frank De Lima evoked a lot of long forgotten but happy and pleasant memories. It was touching and heartwarming to see a few new faces, several returning classmates who we missed in recent years and most enlightening of all to see so many of our loyal and high-spirited classmates who attended in spite of slightly, limiting physical conditions. What an inspirational and encouraging group to behold!
TALK STORY 9 CALIFORNIA HOTEL, LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, SEPTEMBER 8 to 13, 2013: A Hospitality Room, Ample Talk Story Time, Hand Craft Classes, Shopping Trip, "Let's Party" At Triple 7 Restaurant at Main Street Station are Just a few of the events planned.
