Imperial Valley cohorts, past and present, are reminded the 2014 (and possibly final) Reunion Luncheon will be held Saturday, Sept. 13, at the Quiet Cannon restaurant at Montebello Country Club, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Rather than the usual lineup of guest speaker(s), introductions and entertainment, attendees will be offered ample time and opportunity to table-hop, take pictures and remember forgotten faces and names to save embarrassment. A portion of the program will be devoted to pre-war remembrances and brief profiles of Imperial Valley luminaries and heroes.
The sky is not falling but chances are this will be the final renewal of the popular gathering. Brawley, El Centro, Westmorland, Holtville, Niland et al (meaning even smaller townships) might not be recognizable hometowns, but they were home to many a Poston (Ariz.) relocation camp resident of Blocks 26, 53, 54, 59 and 60. (And offspring thereof, by extension and inheritance.)
Detailed information for late reservations regarding the $40 gathering is available by contacting Roy Imazu at (818) 522-4891, Tak Kawshima at (626) 446-9797, or Colleen Hayashi at colleen email@example.com. Hubba, Hubba, you all. Time’s a’wastin’.
