Well, with more than 25% of our graduating members in attendance, I’d like to see what a “smaller” reunion class is. As you can see in the photo below, Punahou74 showed up in force!

They say that bad news comes in threes. This is the third announcement of a classmate’s passing that I have had to make since our 40th reunion last June. I pray that we have reached the end of this distressing string.
