Since 2009 I have posted an thank you to those who have volunteered during Punahou74’s annual shift at the Punahou Carnival. This year a second thank you is given, a thank you to our most reliable volunteers.
Punahou calls them the “True Blue Buff ‘n’ Blue” donors, those who reliably give each year when asked. These donors are the gems. Those who form the nexus of solid support upon which future plans and dreams can be built.
Punahou74 has its own “True Blue” malasada workers. The workers who solidly support the class effort on a regular basis. Those who enter the tent when called, ready to get their hands doughy.
Time to recognize them.
The word cloud below was developed from listings and photos of shift volunteers who served from 2009 to 2017: nine years of service. To simplify, last names only were used (maiden names for the females). The more times a name appears on the list, the bolder the name appears in the cloud. I am sure you will recognize these names. If you get a chance, thank the individuals who bear them.
Note: Apologies to Catherine Tompkison who was on the malasada crew in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. Her name was on my list but not picked up by the application. She’s obviously one of our malasada heroes and highly worthy of commendation.
Thanks to all who have worked over for Punahou74 the last nine years. Special thanks to those of you who make a bold effort year in and year out.
