Just a quick post to say “mahalo plenty” for all of the hard work last night at Ewa Malasadas.
We came in force and filled the tent to sweet perfection. Thanks to all of the classmates, spouses, family, and friends who made Punahou74’s 2014 Carnival effort a DEFINITE SUCCESS. Nancy Dew Metcalf and I couldn’t have done it without the unfailing support of each and every one of you.
Some were new to the booth. Some traveled from afar. Whatever path each person took it was to a good place. Thanks for making the effort.
I’m sharing a few pictures here (many more were in the tent than are pictured) taken courtesy of Mike Mikasa, who put his brand new Samsumg Galaxy Note 3 phone (extra big screen for those 40+ y.o. eyes) to good use. There are plenty more pictures to come but we first want to get the pictures up, organized, and labeled for you before we make them public. We’re also assembling the list of who attended so please give me some time to get this together to give you all the proper “thank you” that you each deserve. It will be worth the wait!
Again, thanks for all of the support. I’d normally sign off saying “see you next year” but, as you know, the next reunion opportunity is coming a lot sooner than that–in four months to be specific–and we’ll see you all then if not sooner. That said, I’ll just say “a hui hou” for now!

Editor’s Note: You’re probably mumbling, “Hey, Lynne. Why are the pictures so small and who are these people? Help me out here!”
Relax. I’m prepping you for reunion by offering you a facial recognition training exercise and giving you the opportunity to identify those pictured yourself. (You’ll thank me later, believe me!)
Click on each picture if you need a larger version to look at. I had to keep the photos small to fit more of them on here.
For the type A personalities out there (and I am sure that includes most of you) you can score your success by earning one point per classmate identified (22 total) plus three points for identifying both the first and last name of the mystery spouse shown in Picture H below: 25 points total. Here’s the scale:
- 20+ points: Reunion Ready! (Please, may I attend reunion with you? No. Really.)
- 13-19 points: You might want to pull out your copy of the Oahuan and take a look at it to brush up.
- 6-12 points: Consider attending reunion with a classmate who’s a social butterfly or upgrade your eyeglass prescription to “fast scope” the name tags from afar.
- 5 points and below: Are you sure you graduated or were even at Punahou with us? Heck, I even named one of the classmates shown in this blog to get you jumpstarted!
Not sure who you see? Need some help with the answers?
To respond as our kids text, “NP.” I will post the answer key here in a week. (Click here to be forwarded to the answer key post.) Until then, ask your friends and classmates for help if you really have to know and work it out together. Good luck and let me know how you do!
