November 16, 2011/ March 21, 2012
Aloha family,
We are finally able to inform you of plans for our Kaapuni Reunion in 2012. After almost a year
of planning we are sending you the arrangements as we have it at the present time. Please feel
free to respond about any of the information in this letter.

The dates are set for July 5 -7, 2012 and will be held in Waimea, Hawaii. We are planning on
using the property at Waiaka St. that was purchased by Grandpa John Kaapuniin the late 1800's.
We are including a list of possible hotels and bed and breakfast accommodations that are in close
proximity to Waimea. 
The theme of our reunion is: "Puili ka Pa Mai na Ale 0 ke Kipu 'upu 'u 0 Waiaka" Which means:
To embrace the rippling winds that bring the kipu 'upu 'u rains ofWaiaka. Our kupuna
(grandparents) were dependant on the kipu'upu'u rains for their existence and sustenance. We
also are dependent on the rains that fall in the mountains and hills of Waimea.
So far, our agenda is as follows:

Thursday - Meet at the food court in the Parker Ranch Shopping center at 5 p.m. for
registration and dinner if you wish, at your own expense. In the food court there is Chinese,
Korean, Mexican and American cuisine available for you to purchase. We would like this time to
be a "Meet and Greet" by the families and music will be provided by some of our talented family
members. So bring your instruments and hula expertise so you may join in the fun.

Friday - Meet at 9 a.m. at Waiaka prepared to begin activities. There will be games and
crafts for all as well as talk story and genealogy gathering. If you would like to help with the
days activities and have suggestions, please let us know. Lunch will be served at Waiaka and the
rest of the day may be spent visiting here, or you may have some beach time with your family.
That evening we will have a BBQ at Waiaka with a fabulous nite of entertainment
provided by none other than YOU! We are asking all families to come prepared with a song, act,
story or dance, etc. Our co-ordinator for this event is the lovely Millie McQuivey assisted by
Uncle Tony Phillips "Uncle T".

Saturday - Meet at 9 am. at Waiaka again, prepared to participate in our service projects.
We are planning to clean the gravesite where grandma Ululani Keliiliki Kaapuni and Great
grandmother Kealohapauole Hoohua Kalimaonaona, her mother, are buried. These gravesites
are on the grounds of the Hawaii Preparatory Academy that is located just above our Waiaka
homesite. We are also planning on serenading our aunts, Thelma Bell Kaniho and Mary Ann
Bell Lindsey who are homebound. They are descendants of grandpa Kaapuni's sister Lahapa

We will have continued games and activities for the children while the adults are doing
the service projects. Lunch will be served at Waiaka after the projects are completed. We will
end early enough for families to prepare for the evening dinner.
On this evening we will have a catered Luau, the place still to be determined. We will be
entertained that night by members of our Family. We will also have door prizes which is being
co-ordinated by the lovely Angeline Luahiwa Chong and Grace Phillips Inamine. So if you have
items to donate for door prizes, please contact one of these ladies.
Now comes the hard part, informing you of the cost of the reunion. We are asking for a $10.00
registration fee for all that will be attending above the age of 6 years. This will help us defray
the cost for port-a-potties, rentals of tables and chairs, name tags and printing and mail outs. The
attached registration form will also reflect the cost of the BBQ, Luau and lunches.
We are asking that the Registration fee be paid by Feburary l", 2012 so we may have an idea of
the number of people to plan for. The cost of the meals may be paid any time before July I",

The last item of business we would like to have your help with is a logo for our reunion T-shirts.
We are holding a contest for the art work that would be used on the T shirt. We would like it to
reflect the theme of our reunion. Deadline for the artwork will be March 1st. The winning design
will be posted on our reunion website and used as the official family logo. So, all you budding
artists (old and young), please send in your renditions.
We look forward to hearing from each one of you, and anxiously await your arrival and
Me ka ha'a ha'a (in humility).
