Dwayne and Jan Nasu for allowing us to take over their upstairs office, making it our committee clubhouse. Dwayne would be rich if he accepted tips from everyone when he valeted their cars.
Wesley Mukawa, for cooking dinner for every meeting, for years - $7.00 for a home cooked meal. The best price in town.
JoAnn Oshima for taking the minutes when Brian Taniguchi (our oldest committee member) can't make a meeting.
Lani Harrington, who has been balancing our books and keeping all the records straight for all the events.
Then there is her husband, Courtney, our webmaster who designed and maintains our "RHS Class of 1969.com" website. He's Punahou '63 but we forgive him. This past summer we were nationally recognized as one of the best websites for keeping Alumnus informed of our activities.
Where has the year gone?

Vincent Yim, the RHS Class of '69 Reunion Commttee chair ponders life...and time.
Christmas just passed and in a few days 2015 will be history.
When we were young, time seemed to stand still and would take forever for a day to go by. Now 50 years later we look back to account for what we have accomplished.
So much more to be done and not enough time in a day to do it. We were all told this when growing up and now we are the ones echoing it to the ones that seem to think time is standing still.
The two highlights of the year were going to Japan in March and Las Vegas in September. Both times we joined forces with Kalani and McKinley. Thirty-eight classmates and friends enjoyed what Bobby Chinen (McKinley '69 and Chris Imoto (McKinley '69) put together, so much that they are going to schedule another Japan tour this coming March.
Forty-seven tried their luck in Las Vegas and it was a blast. Before we came home everyone said let's do it again!
Kaimuki Class of '69 wants to join us for a multi-school 65th Birthday Party. We've had several meetings and we are scheduling multiple events.
In September is planned a mini golf tournament and an evening of karaoke. Then on September 24th we have reserved the Manoa Grand Ballroom for a dinner function and maybe end the evening with a dance. Then we will cap off the year in mid-November with a visit to Las Vegas. All the details will be announced in February on the website.
Back to time - so much of it - but never enough to do everything we want. It has been thirty-six years since our 10th year reunion and the committee has been meeting regularly ever since. We are blessed to have dedicated classmates coming out monthly to the meetings.
There are a few I would want to thank for going above and beyond:
To everyone else - thank you for all the desserts and putting up with my yapping!
Thank You All.
Merry Christmas and have a Prosperous 2016.
P. S. Next year, remember to sign up for Medicare! Yes! We qualify.
