Continuing our look at what some RHS'69 alumni have been doing to keep busy during the lockdown and s-l-o-w reopening, home projects seem to be at the top of the list.
RHS'69 Reunion Committee chair Vincent Yim, who renovates old buildings on the side, really tackled his fix-it list. If you're not tired after reading this, you are better than we are.

You wear a mask and you are looking out for others.
If you don't think a mask is important, you are rolling the dice with your life and others. You can have the virus and not show symptoms. Welcome to being a "spreader". You infect someone and they'll go on to infect someone else. Eventually one of those could die. Because you didn't think it was necessary.
You really want to go there?
Wear a mask when outside and stay 6-feet away from others.
Have you taken a unique picture that just says "Hawaii"? We'd love to feature it on our front page for a week or so.
The picture needs to be high resolution and at least 900 pixels wide, in focus and proper exposure. Anything, scenery, the people, characters, water, sunrise or sunset. It just has to be about Hawaii.
and attach it to an email for us. Sending a picture denotes your permission to post it as well as permission for any post production for cropping, color correcting or adjustments per our judgement.

.For three months it was lockdown in Hawaii because of the pandemic.
It worked and we are safest state in the nation.
So what did we do? A selected few from RHS'69 tell us how they kept busy.

While a mask helps you - a bit - it more helps those around you.
A non-medical mask will not completely block the COVID-19 virus. But it will block the large droplets from someone's mouth when they are talking or coughing in your face.
More importantly they block your coughs and droplets getting into their face when you are close to someone else.
Its been difficult getting the annual RHS'69 Karaoke event for this year off the ground. The COVID-19 pandemic required rescheduling it from May to November.
That date has now been postponed again due to the nationwide increase in infections. Protecting the health of the participants is the primary and most important reason.
A new date of April 24, 2021 has been set aside for the event, conditions permitting.
We will keep you updated as it gets closer both here and in our

Roosevelt High School, Honolulu, Hawaii
Aloha. Welcome to the Roosevelt High School Class of 1969 Reunion Committee website. We're one of the most active high school reunion groups in Hawaii. Maybe anywhere.
To visitor's planning to come Hawaii.
Let's talk about coronavid-19. We're not going to pick on you - we got our own problems.
What we are going to ask is...don't come. Our state government loosened up the restrictions, the crazy people started hanging out with no masks 1-foot apart and now our infection rates are skyrocketing. When we were 20-years old we thought nothing would touch us either. So, thing's are getting locked down again.
When you fly into Hawaii you'll be met at the airport with an large group of people handing you notices and forms. Essentially they say you *must* quarantine yourself and your traveling companions for 14 days. You have no choice. Your hotel will give you a key that works once, just to get into the room. You cannot leave for 14 days. If you do, the hotel or someone will report you and you will get a very expensive ticket or arrested and sent home on the next plane.
Why would you want to come all the way here to sit looking out the window for two weeks. Many people seem to think they can ignore the quarantine cause they are special. Surprise - you're not.
Everyday the newspaper has stories of people getting busted for going to the beach, eating out or being entitled.
It's not worth it. Put it off for now and when the time is right come and enjoy us. You'll have a lot better time without waiting to get busted. It won't be that long.
