With the rollout of Punahou School’s Alumni Week 2017, reunion 2019 is nudging its way on to the edge of Punahou74’s consciousness. In one year the reunion countdown will begin. Good to know that Punahou74 is still strong … and still celebrating together.

Alumni Week’s Thursday night is an “Alumni Celebration.” It’s open to all alumni (+ friends and family) and offers good food, good music, and good times.

While it’s an alumni party, most of the attendees tend to be from reunion classes. And that’s something that Punahou74 will wait another two years to experience.

But this doesn’t stop the great Punahou School class of 1974.

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.

Punahou's Main Gates were a gift of the classes of 1931 and 1931.

Punahou’s Main Gates were a gift of the classes of 1931 and 1931.

Class gifts are a way for alumni to benefit current and future students while honoring their alma mater.  Punahou’s records document the gifts received from graduates dating back to 1904.

Commencement was a week-long affair in those days and featured events such as graduation, a dance, and Class Day. It was during this celebration on June 18, 1904 that class president, Harold Castle, introduced the first class gift. He spoke from the balcony to those gathered on the shady lawn in front of Pauahi Hall:

Mr. Castle said that (more…)

We all enjoyed them at the Friday night 40th reunion party. Why not learn how to replicate the pleasure for yourself?

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.

We all knew Babs had it. After all, she was and is one of our leading Punahou74 artists. As our reunion artist, we’ve proudly worn and enjoyed her artwork for years.

But back to the flowers.

If you were at the Friday night party held during our 40th reunion you enjoyed the music of several classmates, one of whom was Fred Randolph. If you liked what you heard you may be interested in Fred’s new CD.

The album is called “Song Without Singing.” Now, truth be told, I am a political junkie and my audio listening is devoted to  talk radio and audiobooks (love that history). That said, from what I have heard, Fred’s album is (more…)
