Earlier this month Chaminade brought the aloha spirit to San Jose, California. On July 1, alumni, family, friends, and even current and future Chaminade students came together for the Annual Sizzling Summer Northern California Gathering. President Dr. Lynn Babington, Vice President for Advancement, Diane Nguyen-Peters, Director of Alumni Relations, Be-Jay Kodama and a few Board of Governors were all in attendance.
Hosted by Chaminade Board of Governor, Joe Melehan and his wife, Celeste, the afternoon provide past, present and future Chaminade students a chance to meet Dr. Babington and discuss all the great things happening at Chaminade today. Alumni reconnected with old classmates, met new alumni, and many of them had the opportunity to introduce their families to Chaminade for the first time. Current students had the opportunity to hear stories from alumni about their Chaminade experiences and the ways in which Chaminade helped them get to where they are today.
Beyond the opportunity to share stories, the afternoon included mingle bingo, to help break the ice, and lei making.
