Hi 69‘ers!

In  February, the committee had our belated Christmas Party.  

It was held at Dwayne and Jan Nasu’s home.  We ordered a sushi bar.

Here’s the sushi man...

Wes Mukawa roasted a prime rib and salmon while everyone else

brought pupus, salads and desert.  Dining was set up in the garage.


Trust me their cars are parked in luxury,  better than most living rooms.

Black and white tile floor, wet bar, flat screen TV, Bose sound system

and a commercial roll down door to the back area BBQ set up!  

Dwayne’s ultimate toy is an automobile lift for a third car.  Yes, some of us could have dined  with a car over our heads except Dwayne moved it off and parked it outside.

In their yard is a tri-waterfall that should be at Hilton Hawaiian Village!  The living room has 4 large pocket sliding glass doors. It opens to the patio and the water fall garden.  

Did I mention there was a sushi bar?

After dinner we transfered from the garage over to the living room and patio. There waiting were Arthur Akana and Ipo’s husband, Leo, playing music and sang for us. Even Russell Shiroma got into it and sang a couple for us.

Ipo did a couple hula and before the end of the evening everyone sang along too!  Thank you Dwayne and Jan for a wonderful party.

Last night we had our March meeting and Lisa Lee Reed and Courtney Harrington printed up 500 post card reminders for the “Save the Date”  45th Class of 69 Reunion. You should get it in the mail before the end of this week!  It will be at the Moili’ili Room of the Japanese Cultural Center on August 16.  RSVP on our website now by clicking here.

We are planning a full dinner buffet, entertainment, memorabilia’s and seeing old friends.  The highlight will be “The Pledge”  for 5 years we have been receiving your annual pledge and the Summer’s End fundraisers.  Our goal is to raise more than $19,690 and donate it to Roosevelt at our 45th Reunion!


Christmas in a Garage

Vincent is really an elf. No one knows that.

It’s his deepest, darkest secret.

We managed to smuggle out a picture of him when he was working at Santa’s toy factory at the North Pole just before Christmas.
