As explained in an earlier post I reviewed the Punahou Bulletin class notes for reports of births of Punahou74 class members. What I found is shown below. This is a best effort. Some reports did not include a specific name but referenced the new baby with general terms such as “baby girl,” “youngster,” or “young man.” In such cases I would check the Punahou Directory for the reporter’s listed children and, as reported, place of residence. Four entries could not be confirmed and are shown in bold type. If these entries, or any other, needs to be deleted please let me know. I prefer that I be corrected rather than present an inaccurate listing.

In the interest of marking their 60th birthdays in a big way, three Punahou74 classmates are traveling to Honolulu to celebrate. They asked if it was possible to get together with other classmates while in town. I thought, “Why not?” And, while not missing a beat, Mary Jane Markoskie added, “What about karaoke?” What about karaoke indeed. Better yet, what about you singing karaoke right alongside us?

Neon KaraokeWe did this Before

Yes, I know we tried karaoke at our 24th reunion. Remember?

We had just finished putting on the Alumni Luau. Punahou graciously provided us with a “thank you” party for this major effort. After finishing our work on lower field, we concluded the evening by trekking up to the cafeteria for what, given our zombie-like state, promised to be a subdued and highly shortened affair.

But there was some hope. Upon arriving, a Continue Reading »
