OK, Folks. It's great to catch up with all my Radford friends online. However, nothing beats getting together face-to-face...and that's exactly what our upcoming reunion (Class of '77 in Vegas in early September) is all about.

If you're like me, and you plan to attend but haven't signed up yet; please sign up ASAP. I've been messaging Iris Linogon Kikuchi (who is kind enough to arrange our reunion), and as of now, there are only about 40 people signed up. We had a huge class, so please help get the word out to anyone who hasn't RSVPd yet, or who might not know about the reunion.

Our 40th Reunion will only happen once, so let's not miss the opportunity to get all the Rams back together (friends from several other classes, 1975-1980 are also invited to attend), and have a great weekend in Vegas...catching up and remembering old times (while we still can).

See Iris Linogon Kikuchi's posts in the Radford and Radford '77 groups on Facebook for more info and to know how to respond. If nothing else, post a question here and I’m sure you’ll get all the info you need about the Reunion.

Looking forward to catching up with everyone in September!

I never thought it would be possible to attend a class reunion since I graduated in Hawaii! Iris has made my dream come true. My best friend lived in Hawaii over 11 years and she graduated from Moanalua. We knew each other through Pearl Harbor Baptist Church.

I have bought my plane tickets, made reservations at the hotel and am planning to send Iris a check tomorrow. I plan on using UBER once I am there to attend the Caribbean Coctail Party at Bahama Breeze! Then on Saturday, we will be chauffered to the Dinner Buffet at Flamingo Banquet Hall.

There is going to be so much fun! It's VEGAS! I've never been but I've seen movies.....

Huge mahalo to Iris and Pat for keeping the extended ohana and aloha going both on the mainland and in the islands for class of '77. I know how laborious it is to research and produce an event like this, (which is why I flamed out fast after the 10th and 20th I think!) so am eager to see fresh faces for the 40th and catch up on a coupla decades... Just booked my flight and see that we're now at the Westin for Sat. night so am hubbing there too. Looking forward to reflecting on hugs and happiness from a simpler time...See you soon! :) --Amy J.

Hey Amy,

Aloha all! Been away from the site for years. Currently I'm Hawaii visiting my family in Aliamanu. Celebrated my 58th birthday with them! Drove by Radford the other day and saw the sign about recent Reunion in September. Dang, missed. Hopefully the next.
Take care.

Monica Penic (Rosenthal)

Aloha! I was only at Radford for the 1st year then my family left Hickam AFB. Anyway, I see there is a 60th Birthday celebration in the works. I will try to make that, but in the meantime, I am returning to Ohau/Walkiki/Ewa Beach the first week of March, 2-9, 2019. Would love to connect with friends if at all possible. Sharon, Iris, LeeAnn, Melisa, Rorie, and others

Not sure if anyone is looking at this anymore, but I am sending this message with great saddness - Clifford Chong recently passed away due to natural causes.  He was living in New Jersey, still a bachelor.  His family will be holding a celebration of life later this year, once the we can gather in larger groups again.  Clifford was a good friend and the best man at my wedding over 21 years ago.  May he rest in peace.

Patricia Breault

I'm so sorry to hear that Erik.  I remember him well and am saddened to hear he passed.  If you send me details, I can add him to the "In Memory" page as well as the class FB page.  Maybe include a photo from your wedding as well that he was in? My email is

Thanks for letting us all know and yes, there are a lot of us still following this website.

I Remember Clifford from the Interact club. Nice guy. Even as I grow older my classmates will be forever young in my memories.

So sad to hear of Clifford's passing. I remember him as a studious fellow classmate. My prayers and condolences go out to his family and friends and wish him eternal peace.

Julie Nishioka (Takaesu)

I remember Clifford as smart, soft-spoken and hard-working. Sad to hear of his passing. Thank you for letting us know, Erik. So sorry for your loss of a good friend.

Amy Jussel

So sorry to hear of this loss. I just picture Clifford in his aloha shirts, laughing with you, Erik, and the warmth and ease of how you two there was always some inside joke we weren't privy to; likely smart, reserved w/a little wry wit...

Michael Schenaker

Saddened by this loss to the Radford Ohana...Clifford was always a cheerful presence during my years at RHS.

Aloha Classmates!

Just a reminder - "SAVE THE DATE" for the 45th 1977 Class Reunion on Fri-Sat October 14-15, 2022. We are in the planning stages and need everyone to respond to the questions, so we know how many of you to expect, if you will need hotel accomodations and if you want extra activities planned for the event.

Tentatively, it will be a 2-day event with a "MEET & GREET" social hour on the evening of FRIDAY OCT 14 and DINNER at a Restaurant/Hotel Ballroom on SATURDAY OCT 15.

For this reunion to be successful, we need everyone to encourage other classmates to register on our website and keep your email address current. We have a Radford Class of 1977 Facebook page so connect to that social media, as we will post updates periodically. 

We still need volunteers, so NO BE SHAME, and email me if you can KOKUA at

Huge mahalo to you Iris for all your hard work trying to rally folks...and to Pat Breault for multiyears prior as well...I will definitely resurface to help coordinate the 50th in Hawaii and hope we can all start touching base with our own ohana to start extracting fresh emails and snail mails to outreach (if Xmas cards are still a thing)...

(p.s. I've been off FB since my folks passed in '17 so miss hearing how everyone's doing, but the datamining and privacy policy where they were literally trying to tap into grief and track my moves made me put them in the "ethically bankrupt" category...I'm still at the same address and am thinking if anyone has a pro version of Zoom we might start having quarterly or half-year 'mini reunions' w/other class years on either end of ours to start figuring out where people are as well...) 

Hugs and hellos to all ... Amy
