Thanks Vernon for pointing that out.
We have lost so many, not only classmates but their relatives and friends.
Do take care everyone, not only yourselves but your loved ones too.

Another classmate also recently lost a close loved one.

Joined Gerri Barcenas and a whole bunch of classmates for lunch at the
Treetops restaurant in upper Manoa this past weekend.
Below a link to photos of that get-together.
Mahalo Gerri for the invite.

Thanks Manny, good to know we won't be afoul of any laws enforced by
your former employer.
Anyone having questions or comments and wishes to contact Manny, let
me know and I'll pass on his contact info.

For those not familiar with the Branson mentioned by Arline, it wouldn't
be too much of a stretch to say that the town is the entertainment capital
of the Midwest.
Here's more info for those still wondering:

Great to hear you're enjoying your new digs Betty.
Hope you can make it to our next, and your first, reunion wherever and
whenever that may be.

Mahalo for joining us.
The wait for lunch was longer due to my hectic schedule.
Anyhow, it was a loud noisy fun time with a great bunch of good pals.
By the way, I do say, no worries, your dashing different look with your beard
surprised us but it is a distinguished Harold look.
Here are some pics of us.
Be well.

A hui ho,

We can have a Casino Night without being in violation any of our laws.
We don,t have to wait till next year.
Pearl call me and I will help make this happen.
We can have dice, poker, black jack , tables with dealers, anything we want.
Anyone who wants to call me, Hal has my number.
Will be waiting for the calls.

Aloha all you young'uns.
Recently in a conversation with a couple of classmates, and we were talking
about a tour to Branson to hear music of our time.
Seems there are a couple of travel agencies that offer up that tour, Kobayashi
Travel is one of them.
Think anyone else might think this a good idea?
Bumped into Phyllis at the golf course and she was with a 1961 grad and got
into discussing our upcoming golf adcventure and mentioned that Shinty
was thinking of getting the 61 class golfers.
Phyllis might be able to provide a contact person/phone number.
Seems that group doesn't have good turnouts when they have golf outings.
Always a great delight to open & read yours (and everybody else's) posting.
HAPPY & safe Memorial
