As Regina Yarchever Heit so kindly reminded her facebook friends, Punahou74 graduated 44 years ago on June 1, 1974.

74 graduation

June 1, 1974: Punahou74 on stage at the Honolulu International Center.

And that was that. Our last time together as a class … or was it?

As promised in the malasada mahalo post, here are the pictures that go with the story. Scenes shown here were taken during the malasada shift on Friday night, February 2 and haku lei making at Dole Cafeteria on January 30. Mahalo to Gaye Miyasaki and Catherine Tompkison for their photographs.

Thanks again to all who made a Punahou74 impact at Carnival. You are among the 4,000 volunteers who made Carnival happen.

See you in 2019!

“What, me worry?” Yes. Me worry plenty! Going into Friday there was a concern that Punahou74 would not meet its malasada shift commitment and would be about 15% short of the people we needed. And many of these volunteers were “tentatives.” When it came to shift time, would the malasadas have to be make themselves?

Taj Malasadas 2018

TAJ MALASADAS is the name of this year’s Ewa Malasada booth. As the Taj Mahal is one of the world’s architectural wonders so too is a Punahou’s malasada one of the world’s culinary wonders!

As I’ve said before … they don’t make themselves, you know.

Alton Komori, Patti Look, and Leslie Ching Allen making the malasadas at Punahou Carnival 2017. Definitely hands-on work!

Sad to say, we need a few more volunteers to fill the tent on Friday. How about you?

Who: Punahou74 classmates, spouses, family, and friends. Yes, ask everybody you know. Pedigree will not be checked at the tent entrance! Punahou74 will once again be sharing the shift with Punahou70.

What: Ewa Malasada Shift

When: Friday, February 2, 2017 from 4:45 pm to 8 pm

Where: Ewa Malasada booth (between Pauahi and Montague Halls)*

Why: Because we are the great Punahou class of 1974!

To volunteer please comment on this blog, on the Punahou74 facebook page,  or email Nancy Dew Metcalf.

Thanks to the following Punahou74 classmates, family, and friends who have already volunteered. See a familiar name? Great time to reconnect! See an unfamiliar name? Great time to make a new friend!

Remember to (more…)

Catherine Tompkison models one of her floral lei. She says that she made more than 30 lei for Punahou Carnival 2017. 100% sold, of course!

After years of hearing, “I’d like to help but, gee … the malasada booth? Can’t we do something else?” Now you can.

Waiting Malasada Customers

A common sight at the malasada booth: anxious customers waiting for their malasadas.

It’s a recognized problem. One that was known even 45 years ago when Punahou74 was running the show. (more…)

The Punahou Alumni Association’s recognition of outstanding alumni has become a regular part of the school’s Alumni Week in the last few years. Despite 2017 being a non-reunion year, Punahou74’s presence at the ceremony was hard to ignore. You should’ve been there!

2017 PAA Awards

AWARDS READY TO GO. Marcia’s and Scott’s are the second and third in line. Since they were first given out in 1954, 165 awards have been made to alumni. The oldest recipient? O-in-Life winner George Paul Cooke of the class of 1895. Twelve 1970-decade graduates have also won over time: four of them members from the great class of 1974!

No, it’s not because of the kalua sliders, chicken potstickers, shrimp cocktail, and caramel cuts that filled our plates that attendance was a must-do. It’s because it is no (more…)
