Oh, have we been busy - Part Two
There's little doubt the RHS'69 reunion committee is one of the busiest alumni organizations in Hawaii and maybe much of the mainland.
There's almost always something going on and RHS'69 alumni like to do it together.
Reunion committee chair Vincent Yim takes a look back at a jam packed schedule for 2018.
We did not list the 7 dances
organized by Joann Chikuma (KHS
'69), our Disco Queen or the recent
Las Vegas get-away headed by Sandy
Nishimoto, Alan's better half.
And when was the last time you
walked Waikiki? Thanks to Bobby
Imoto (KHS'69) he got a couple of us to participate in the Waikiki Charity Walk or
should I say it was more a feast.
One of the year's highlights was when 86
of us went to the Bruno Mars concert and
we all sat together on the VIP areas,
reserve parking, private restroom,
buffet and bar.
Thanks to Harold Fujii for hustling
11 classmates to volunteer for the
Salvation Army Thanksgiving Dinner, a wonderful time to give.
Remember the April night we all were
fighting for the mic at the three-peat
Karaoke Night put together by Robin
Yafuso and Harold.
Then the Beach House Luau
where 60 plus of us showed up and
Arthur Akana and his group entertained,
and Bev Lum and Wes Mukawa prepared
the fabulous luaus.
We even had professional singing
lessons from Craig Shimizu, Veda's
(WHS'69) husband or the surprise
ballroom dance class by Debbie
Yes, it is that time of year to reflect
on the past few months to cherish the
fond memories. Now is not the time to
sit back and get fat. There are places to go, things to do and meet new friends.
Time is only good when you use it to
the max! Merry Christmas and
may you have a healthy and
Happy New Year.
Sad to say we lost a dear friend
from Manoa, Reggie Oka (St. Louis
69). It is when we lose a friend that
we look back at all the great times we
had...life, so short that we need to make
the most of what is left. Our childhood
friends are intrenched into our past,
good memories and rascal times
too...those were the days.
It's that time for all to look back at this year.
Yes, we all said "Where has the year gone?" Did we spend quality time with our family, friends and classmates? The Reunion Committee is blessed to have one or more events every month for this year. Take a look at our major events for each month.
