Alumni Day of Service
A key part of Alumni week, the Alumni Day of Service give
alumni the opportunity to participate in environmental stewardship service
projects that Punahou students experience during the school year. In 2014, nearly a hundred committed individuals
participated in one of several Alumni Day of Service options: cultural and
ecological restoration at Kualoa Ranch and the ahupua‘a of Hakipu`u; working at
MA`O Organic Farms in Lualualei Valley; and rediscovering the hidden life of
our very own spring, Ka Punahou.
Planning for your reunion is a yearlong event that
starts in August with the Reunion Kick-Off, where classmates form activity and
gift committees to plan class events and raise a meaningful class gift. In
addition to the reunioning classes, the 24th Reunion Class participates in the
time-honored tradition of serving as the official Alumni Lu'au Host. The Lu`au
Host Class plans the event, decorates the tent, prepares and serves food and
drinks, and coordinates more than 100 Academy student volunteer servers.
Members of the 23rd Reunion Class will "shadow" to prepare for the
next year's hosting duties.
