In conjunction with this year’s Kohala Community Reunion, former band members are planning a separate reunion and potluck from noon-4 p.m. July 4 at the Hawi Jodo Mission Hall.

Members are collecting memories and photos of the band for a memory book. If you have any items you’d like to share, please do so by April 30. The reunion is for band members, majorettes, chaperones, managers, those who performed in school plays and all Billie D. Brooks fans.
