Class of ’69 Birthday Bash 2016
65 Years!!


To celebrate our 65th birthday in 2016, a courageous group comprised of Class of ’69 members from Kaimuki, Kalani, McKinley, and Roosevelt High Schools has been busy planning activities for September that will culminate with a big birthday bash event.

So many of us are connected in some way from attending elementary and intermediate schools together as well as through work, extended families, and friends in our adult lives.  It is only fitting that we join together to celebrate this “once in a lifetime achievement” … and have fun!

Preliminary activities like a golf tournament and karaoke night are designed as “ice breakers” before the birthday bash event on Saturday.

2015 LV Bash Friday Night Banquet

The Prime Rib Loft at The Orleans was the site for the group's banquet.  Classmates from the three schools wore their school colors and had a fabulous dinner.  The prizes for the McKinley sponsored "Crazy Bowling" event were awarded following dessert.








Winners of the Walk the Strip Scavenger Hunt

The team made up of Keith Kurahashi, Dayle Hoopai (RHS), Joanne Amioka Chikuma (KHS), and  Ann Moniz Suen (KHS) edged out their closest competition by a few points with some very creative and funny picture submissions.

Team 1 won $100 cash for their first place finish.  The scavenger challenge probably lasted longer than the prize money, but they had a great workout and now own the bragging rights.
