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.

Gordon Choy, Sandy Asato Nishimoto, Keith Kurahashi (MHS), Ann Moniz Suen, Harold Fujii (RHS), Jo Amioka Chikuma, Chris Sumiye Imoto (MHS) and Wes Mukawa (RHS)

  1. Wish more Kalani Alumni had attended the recent Las Vegas reunion - win or lose, It Was Fun! Hope other alumni consider joining future Las Vegas trips to reconnect. Time marches on and when you get too old it is difficult to travel so do it while you can.
    Want to thank Bobby and Jo Ann for organizing the Kalani gang as they always do an exceptional job and I want to thank Bobby for keeping and maintaining this blog site. We should do what RHS does; they keep a list of the alumni and contact info (emails) and constantly search for missing alumni members so we can contact each other if only to just say hello and hope you are doing well.
    Best Regards from the SF Bay Area.
