RHS'69 gets a lot of internet visitors too but this may be a bit harder to explain.

Maybe it's just a fun place to check out. Webmaster Courtney Harrington takes a look at some of the people (and some of the places) that dropped by to see what's happening.

Once a year, the RHS'69 Reunion Committee throws a slam-bang Christmas Party...a month late.

Everyone is too busy in December so the party happens sometime in


Dayle Hoopai and Bev Lum grabbed their reporter pencils and fill us in on the doings.

Apologies to the Four Seasons...

It was a night, oo-oo what a night.

It was it really was such a night.

The Most Excellent Gastronomical Event

Monday, May 27, 2019

Once a year thousands of people descend on Waikiki for the annual Charity Walk. It's a bit more complcated than walking. You're eating to one end of Waikiki and back.

If you have heard the term, "herding cats", then you have a good idea of what RHS'69 Reunion chair Vincent Yim is doing these days.

RHS'69's Golden 50th

Sunday, September 1, 2019

No success is dependent on one person. Collaboration is always the key since any one process affects the outcome of the total.

Planning for the 50th Reunion began a year ago.  Four members of the Reunion Committee look back on how great the 50th was.

Years in the planning, the RHS'69 Cruise was a big success. Art and Josie Akana were the wagon masters that put this adventure together and held our hands all the way.

We set a blog record for the number of pictures and videos. Take a look.

Of Flies and Fishes

Monday, December 2, 2019

There's an old story about a mosquito landing at an Alaskan airport.

The ground crew gave it 200 gallons of fuel before they figured out it wasn't a 747.

They grow big in the 49th state.

But this story is about fish and not jet sized-bugs although little bugs is another story.
