as reported in Aloha Voter February 1987
50 Leaguers met with 11 past presidents of the Honolulu and State Leagues, shared their most exciting experiences during their terms of office and renewed old friendships at Honolulu's "conception-day" party on Valentine's Day.
The past presidents who were present from the Honolulu League were:
Marion Saunders 1954-56
The past presidents who were present from the State League were
Marguerite Simson 1965-70
Leaguers were treated to a slide show of League in action promoting the City Charter in 1958 and a parade of Leaguers waving signs with issues that were important in the early 50's and that, we noted are still current.
Korean BBQ beef and Kim chee were among the goodies Leaguers feasted on.
