 Upcoming 65th Birthday

Back in 2011 our class participated in a few reunion events to help celebrate our 60th birthday.  Included were a tennis & volleyball lunch and a joint dance with our classmates from Kaimuki, McKinley, and Roosevelt, a Las Vegas 60th Bash with McKinley and Roosevelt, and our own Falcons golf and banquet get together at the Oahu Country Club.

2016 will mark our 65th birthday and the reunion committee is contemplating similar activities.  Watch for more details.

Class of '69 Vegas Bash

A group of about 45, made up of '69 classmates from Kalani, McKinley, and Roosevelt along with some family and friends, just returned from their Las Vegas Bash 2015 trip.  Although the "headquarters" for the main activities was at The Orleans, the group successfully deposited a lot of their money equally throughout the Strip and the downtown casinos.  After the dust had settled, everyone ate a lot, had a lot of fun together during the bonding activities, and had a great time.
