The annual LACA – Las Vegas Scholarship Luncheon is scheduled for September 22, 2018 at the California Hotel from noon to 4:00 p.m. Click to download the registration form. Please register early with your classmates or family. The program includes authentic Hawaiian music, an onolicious buffet lunch, a silent auction and door prizes with time to share your treasured memories of Lana’i. The LACA board looks forward to another year of making memories and in turn you all are providing for the annual award of scholarships for deserving seniors.
Memories make Lana’i special to all who have lived there, gone to school and or spent endless summers picking pine in the dusty red fields. Upcoming events in July will certainly create more memorable times for alumni and community folks.
Many Lana’i community folks and alumni are planning an 80th observation of Lana’i High School for the weekend of July 7, 2018. Another parade of classes from all years is encouraged to participate – decorating vehicles, walking together in class attire, and cheering for your class! The Saturday parade will go around Dole Square and is sure to garner many a cheer for alumni and current students. Details are being worked out amongst class representatives with Juan Degamo. Please check with your classmates on any plans for your class participation.
A school assembly is planned for Friday, July 6 at the high school. Please check the school’s website for more information and or contact Juan Degamo and or the Lanai Community Association on Facebook. Details not available at print time.
That Saturday afternoon will kick off the annual Pineapple Festival in Dole Park with music, food booths, vendors, and community booths. Check the Lanai Today website for more information as the date for the festival nears. There will also be information on special ferry times from Lahaina to Lanai for folks wanting to ferry over and return that evening.
The Class of 1970 and Class of 1971 meet almost quarterly at the Zippy’s on Vineyard Blvd. in Honolulu to share breakfast and talk story about Lana’i. The last gathering had about 30 folks and lasted from breakfast to almost lunch time!
