Alumni learned more about the fine art of sake.
, a Kamehameha Schools graduate, kindly volunteered his expertise in honor of his father Richard Papa
’49. Liloa skillfully tempted the palettes as he guided alumni through the world of sake. Guests tasted five different sake, each paired with a special kaiseki dish and topped off with a full dinner buffet. The event pleased everyone who attended, from those who had never tasted sake before to those who consider it their drink of choice. Special thanks to IAA board members Norman Cheng
’95, Sara Murakami
’85, and Sherri Iha
’84 for organizing the event.

Alumni and their families got into the Halloween spirit during an afternoon of bowling.
Nearly 100 alumni and members of their families gathered on October 30 at Aiea Bowl for the spooktacular ‘Iolani Alumni Association Halloween Bowling Party and Costume Contest! These spirited Raiders put their best game forth as they bowled in costume, chowing down Aiea Bowl’s famously tasty food for lunch in between frames. Parents and children wowed the crowd during the costume contest, with Delwyn Wong
’91 and his baby son taking home one of the first costume contest prizes. This event, hosted by the IAA, was a fun, relaxing way to enjoy Halloween as a family — and with alumni!

On APEC Thursday, November 10, 2011, almost four dozen alumni gathered at Uncle Bo’s Restaurant in Kapahulu for a fabulous evening of fellowship and free food hosted by the ‘Iolani Alumni Association (IAA).

’86 for making the event possible.
