CONGRATULATIONS to classmates and high school sweethearts, Solidad “Soli” Dela Calsada and Mariano “Mars” Masicampo, Class of 1955 as they celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary on May 18th.  They were blessed in marriage by Father Everett Gillian, Sacred Hearts Catholic Church, Lana’i City on May 18, 1958.

“Mars” joined the Air Force and travelled to many places with “Soli” until his retirement in 1978.  His last duty station was Vandenberg AFB, California.  They are blessed with four sons, one daughter, nine grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

Like most Lanaians, they ventured afar and finally settled in California.  “Soli” worked till retirement at the local WalMart and is enjoying her family to the fullest.  After retirement, “Mars” worked as a government satellite contractor and currently as a slot technician at the nearby Chumash Indian Resort and Casino.

Congratulations “Mars” and “Soli” and many more to come!
