The Lightning Myth

It's often said that lightning never strikes the same place twice, but that's absolutely not true.
In fact, lightning likes to strike the same place twice.  Lightning will actually seek out those places or things that attract lightning.  For example, the radio mast on top of the Empire State Building in New York has be hit by lightning for than 50 times!

As 69 Falcon alumni, our young lives, like lightning, struck each other many times some 42 years ago and again in five to ten year increments (reunions).  Just like lightning, we all like to strike the same place again and again to enjoy each other's company and exchange stories.  The Kalani Alumni Committee has worked hard to provide a place and time for us to do just that.  They have also gone out to seek new "places and things that attract lightning" by meeting with three other class of 69 alumni groups: McKinley, Roosevelt, and Kaimuki High Schools.

Start planning your lightning strikes now.  Contact and talk to your class of 69 alumni and also your friends from other schools, and make plans to meet at the Birthday Bash events in July (JCC) and November(Las Vegas).  And most importantly, reserve August 12 for our Kalani Birthday Bash event at the Oahu Country Club.
