18 Tri-Kaps got together on Saturday, January 11 for a great night at SmithHouse Tap & Grill for our first Los Angeles Tri-Kap Reunion. Thanks to Richard Park ’01, Ed Son ’08, Chris Takeuchi ’09 and Blair Randall ’11 for organizing. The turnout was a great one for a first time event so many miles from Hanover. While many of those Tri-Kaps who attended were graduates from the ‘90s and ‘00s, we were happy to have Bill Danforth ’60 and his wife Joanne join us as well as Greg Pulis ’74.
The group had a great time together reconnecting, sharing stories and meeting fellow Tri-Kaps. Bill shared with us the sad news of the passing just that morning of Tony Rodolakis ’60. Over the years of Tony’s illness, Bill and many of his Tri-Kap classmates routinely visited Tony in Massachusetts together. Bill gave a stirring tribute to Tony and said that he and many of his Tri-Kap classmates were on the phone that morning after news of Tony’s death circulated. Greg was kind enough to lead the group in a verse of the Tri-Kap Marching Song in honor of Tony. All those in attendance received a Tri-Kap coffee mug emblazoned with the Pillar and Shield seal. Everyone had a great time and promised to both get together for future Los Angeles reunions and spread the word to other Tri-Kaps.
