Program

The preliminary program on Oahu is listed below.  There will also be events in Hilo (July 6) and Maui (July 7), with details soon to be provided.

Please contribute to the program!

We want everyone to come with a memory or two to share.  It could be an anecdote or travail. Let us know if you need to show a slide or two, if you have a sentence or two or several paragraphs.

We would also request that you send us any questions you would like to pose to our panel of Directors and Acting Directors.
