Rumors Night Club!

Here is what Vivian said:

"We are getting together at
Rumors Night Club
on Saturday November 10, 2007, and meeting outside of the club at 8:30.

With Sista Sherry's help, we got a private room rented and we figure we would just order pupus when we get there I guess and split it amongst us. PLEASE, PLEASE, help me and spread the word to all, there is no cost to you other than you buy your own drinks and chip in for the pupus if you like. THERE IS NO OBLIGATION... So, if you can come, PLEASE DO!!!! Lets have 1 more night of fun and talking story with those classmates who were not able to attend and share our stories with them.
So if anyone has any questions, please feel free to call me at 258-1450."

Video clips of the 20th Reunion and other class parties now on YouTube!
Go to youtube.com
Search for WHS77 (no space between WHS and 77).
You should find at least 13 video clips.
When you click on one, right below the picture, on the right, there is a rectangular icon.  If you click it, the video will usually go full screen.

This looks familiar... except the trees are MUCH bigger!

And why are we called The Marauders, anyway?

Midst the Waving Tassels

Midst the waving tassels
stands Waipahu High
Breezes from the mountains
sweep across the sky
Let us pledge our Love to Alma Mater
Keep thy precepts without fail
In loving praise, our voices raise
Waipahu, our high school
Our Alma Mater, Hail
All Hail Waipahu, Hail Waipahu
Hail, Hail, Hail

Tranquil lies Pearl Harbor
placid in repose
Fields are rich and fertile
where the tall cane grows
Let us offer thanks to Alma Mater
Cherish well thy honored name
From far and near, our voices cheer
Waipahu, our high school
Long will live thy fame.
