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.

Thanks to Gaye, the celebration continues.

60 Kanreki

For those lucky enough to reach their 60th birthdays, Japanese tradition celebrates the idea of growing older and rebirth in the form of a kanreki.

During this time of 60th birthday celebrations for many classmates Gaye has been using the term “kanreki” to describe the festivities. If you’re like me perhaps you’re wondering what kanreki means. I looked it up:

Kanreki is a celebration held on a man’s 60th birthday. Kan means “return” and reki means “calendar.” At 60, according to the Chinese zodiac, a person has returned to the calendar sign under which the person was born. … the person is beginning his or her life all over again.
