Just came from trying to get Wailoa State Park for next year – and as things have it they are closing the park down for renovation the entire 2016.
And the County facilities (Aunty Sally’s Luau Hale) is also booked.
We checked on some of the church halls, and those run $400 per night …. a bit rich for our pocketbooks.
So, it seems we have to postpone another year …
Aloha Cook Ohana!
I am Kaelene Foo and would like to ask for your assistance in planning our next family reunion. Please take the time to fill out my survey and return it to me no later than July 31, 2015.
We would also like to thank the past coordinators, Aunty Sylvia Akiona, sisters Ann Fergerstrom and Fay Lindsey for all their hard work and aloha. I look forward in following their footsteps and make this upcoming reunion a fun and memorable event.
Once we get the majority of the surveys in, I will start working on setting up dates, agenda, and locations. I will also work on seeing if I can set up some kind of fundraising events to offset some costs (food, lodging, airfare, prizes, etc.).
We hope to see all your shiny, smiley faces at the Cook Ohana Reunion in 2016!
If anyone is willing to volunteer to help, it would be appreciated! I’m looking for folks to help with the following:
- Location logistics
- Fundraising events
I am more than willing to meet with anyone who is willing to help and assist. Your efforts will not be unrewarded!
Mahalo and see you folks there!

We have found a place for the reunion! We were able to obtain Wailoa State Park Large Pavilion for our reunion.
Please save the dates: Friday, July 8 and Saturday, July 9, 2011.
We can now begin to really plan and will keep you all posted as things progress. In the mean time – SAVE THE DATE!
It has been 3 years since our last reunion… how quickly time goes!
We are sending out this survey to see how many of you would be interested in attending a reunion next year 2011.
If so, please send a reply and let us know which month (June or July) would be better for you and your family.
Because of the limited number of places available in Hilo, we have to reserve spaces one year in advance…. that means if we have enogh people interested in a reunion in 2011 we need to begin all the reservations and preparations this coming summer.
