How swiftly the years have gone by! Sixty-two years since graduation day on June 6, 1953, we are still bonded by that Lanai spirit of lifelong friendships. On July 21, 2015, several classmates and guests converged at the Golden City Restaurant on North School Street in an impromptu class reunion.
We welcomed home Rufina Rabbon Kula who now resides in Texas and also a home in Molokai. Also, we enjoyed meeting our classmate’s son, Eddie Bruno Oroyan from Belgium who is a renowned dancer and choreographer and the recipient of several prestigious awards including the 2006 Artist of the Year, 2008 Outstanding Performer, and the 2009 Metro Magazine’s Keeper Award. We share Bruno’s pride and happiness in his son Eddie’s artistic accomplishments!
The luncheon was a savory buffet of delicious Chinese food mixed with nostalgic memories of our classmates. We laughed over many “Eh you remember” anecdotes which sparked more happy memories. All too soon for the newly 2015 octogenarieans of the Class of 1953 it was time to bid each other a fond aloha with many assurances of getting together again.
