The committee has planned two events at the Orleans Hotel & Casino:
1. Banquet dinner on October 22, Tuesday, 6pm-11pm.
2. Brunch on October 23, Wednesday, 9am-1pm
We plan on lots of free time to meet up with old friends and to make new ones! To help fund this event and keep the cost low, we are once again asking our generous classmates to make donations toward this event. Thank you to Greg Tsuda and Linda (Higa) Nyman for getting the donation fund started! Donations may be sent to our Mainland treasurer Linda at her address noted above.
The committee is working on creating another successful event as they have in the past. Our first planning meeting will be January 5th, 2019 at Nolan Higa’s home in Los Angeles.
If you haven’t been to any of the past reunions, make a point to attend this one. It will be a blast to meet old friends again. This will be the last formal event for our class of 67 so don’t miss this opportunity to meet up with old/new friends.
Thanks again to our Rudy Obrero for another awesome original art work that will grace our reunion T-shirt. The mainland committee challenged him to come up with another new one and he never fails to impress.

The planning committee is hard at work taking care of all the details to insure a fun time. Register now to help the committee with their planning.
Been to the school since graduation? Greg Tsuda thought it would be interesting to look at the campus today. Here is a photo and a short video of the campus.
