As reported by: Agnes
(Stephanie arrived late with fianc`e Bill Laxton due to unannounced guests stopping by their home)... Despite the delay, excitement
was in the air! I could tell that everyone rushed from work to home to prepare for the first night's event.
nice to see everyone there and looking great! Everyone couldn't wait to catch-up on 20 years of time since most of us did
not see each other although we may live on the same island or neighboring islands.It all started with a welcome speech by
Douglas and myself and the presentation of leis. A big Mahalo goes out to Elma Bruno for all the hard work in making leis
enough for all(3)days of the reunion. Once leis were given out, we all rushed for the delicious seafood buffet. The food
and desserts were great. While everyone was enjoying the food and each other's company, we presented door prizes ranging
from dinners, hotel accommodations, gold jewelry and gift certificates collected by myself from Merchants and vendors all
over the South/North Kohala. We managed to have prizes for everyone who attended. You should have been there for the "blow
job" drinking contest by some of our innocent classmates...it was all just for the fun! Many stayed until the end.
The night ended with lots of laughters, hugs, kisses and good memories...all caught on video tape. From California, the farthest
traveled this reunion was Paulette(Nani Neula)Mendez and her husband.
