While working on the 40th reunion committee there was a moment of levity when it was discovered that four of the committee members were born a mere three days apart during the month of February. With 60th birthdays coming up in 2016 it was time to celebrate!
Two of the committee birthday members were able to attend a get together at Ryan’s on March 5. Gaye Miyasaki stopped by to drop off some caramel cuts before hand. Babs Miyano Young, Lisa Yamaguchi Bowden, and Monica Del Piano Campanis were there for the duration.
Of course, with so much estrogen at the table, the theme of the evening was “princess.” The guests of honor enthusiastically donned their pink tiaras while Babs gifted all with anthurium bouquets worthy of any beauty queen. Oh, and let’s not forget the chocolate! Lisa answered the call for that feminine favorite by handing out boxes of yummy Hawaiian Crown “Hapa Chocolate Hearts” straight from her pineapple company.
After dinner a chorus of “Happy Birthday” was followed by the quick extinguishing of the six birthday candles that stood atop the pink-frosted home-baked vanilla birthday cake. In a clever extension of the theme, decorative paper tiaras encircled the cake’s top. Monica snapped pictures of all of the festivities.
Girl fun to the max!
The group is looking to reach out to three classmates who are headed to Hawaii to celebrate their birthdays at the start of April. Karaoke anyone? Let’s keep the party going.
Oh, and who were the other committee birthday members who passed on the Ryan’s opportunity? Sorry to have missed you Linda and Derek! Hope you had a happy 60th birthday too!
