The S&D annual 2017 Family Christmas party with about 100 in attendance was held on December 17 at the 100th Infantry Battalion Clubhouse in Honolulu. Five veterans were present this year: Robert Kishinami, Fujio Matsuda, Jack Nakamura, Richard Nomura and Shiroku “Whitey” Yamamoto. Members, family and friends enjoyed the lunch spread provided by the Iolani School cafeteria, which included old time favorites like steamed fish, korean fried chicken, shoyu pork, salads, fruits, noodles, cakes and all kinds of desserts donated by members.
Door prizes too numerous to count were passed out to all in attendance, with top prizes of $50 gift cards and many other gift cards. We really appreciate all the door prizes donated by many who came. Christmas carols were sung, games were played and enjoyed including the “Right Family” story and Santa handed out gifts to kids and adults alike. S&D members and friends ended the year enjoying each other’s company and the Christmas season. Thank you so much for all those who came out to help!!! Please join us next year!
