As Punahou celebrates the graduation of the class of 2016 this weekend, there will be one thing missing from the occasion, something that once was a seventy-year campus tradition: the bestowing of a class gift.

As anyone knows, flowers can add real elegance and beauty to a party setting. Thanks to the artistry of Babs Miyano Young, our Friday night party was greatly enhanced by the stunning floral presentation that she assembled for the historic Morgan manse.

But back to the flowers.
