Final committee meeting

On Monday, August 26th, the mainland reunion committee met at Cynthia (Sodetani) Iwai’s home to complete planning for our reunion in October. With less than two months to go, the committee finalized plans and made assignments for our week of fun in the sun in October.

The committee has planned two events at the Orleans Hotel & Casino:

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.


Make New Memories at the Picnic/Luau this October 2017

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.

See you at the 50th Reunion part II.
