Prince Kuhio Hotel
The reunion committee members belatedly would like to thank the 165 people who attended our 20th-year reunion dinner and 70 who came to the picnic in August. We appreciate the great feedback we've received since then and it sounds like everyone had a good time.
It was fun finding out what everyone was doing after 20 years... The folks who have become parents - and grandparents... Those who found job succes at home and on the Mainland... Even someone who retired after 20 years of military service! We also appreciate all those who made the trip from the Neighbor Islands, and the Mainland from such places as Virginia, Texas, Pennsylvania and California.
For those of you who didn't make it: We missed you!
We hope to stay in contact with all those on the mailing list and plan something for the 25th-year reunion (2002!) as many of you suggested. Most of the class members who attended the reunion said they would like to have something informal for the 25th. The committee made a pact to meet in the year 2000 to start talking about what we want to do. We don't want to limit the organization to the current committee. We'd like to include more people and already have offers of help. If you are interested, please contact us at the address or phone number below.
The committee was asked to ID the group picture taken at the reunion (some folks came too late; typical of our class, eh?). We believe we got all the IDs correct! If not, give Bart a call so he can correct the original. We don't look that much older, do we?
