Building upon an idea that was used for both Punahou School’s 175th and Wo Center 25th anniversaries, a fun surprise was on display when I arrived on the Punahou School campus on June 8.

The idea that I reference is the use of banners to line Slade Drive, the road that one enters via the main gate. What excited me this June was something altogether different from what had been previously displayed. The anniversary banners had announced the event in question. The banners I was reading offered a variety of messages, each (more…)

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.

“Hey, where’s the party?” (Stein Rafto photo)

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.

June 9, 2016 was a day to party on the Punahou campus; a day that would include one of the last celebrations of the 175th anniversary year.

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…)
