2016 Reunion Update

(originally posted on 29 July 2016)


Malo e lelei Famili,


Please accept my apology for missing out from our website. However i want to give thanks to the Almighty for guiding and protecting us to completing our Reunion for 2016 without any accidents. As you know, na'e malava pe ke hoko ha palopalema pe mole ha mo'ui, ka 'oku fakafeta'i 'i hetau lava lelei ke ikuna'i e Reunion.


It's been 10 years since the last Reunion 2006 that was held here at the Lalo Kalosipani. For those who made it, they notice the huge change in the country especially in downtown Nuku'alofa after all the rebuilding from the 16/11 riot in 2006. Na'e kamata pe tu'uta mai mei he kau folau 'a e 'ea 'o e 'api, 'Alekisio Laupoini Tavo all the way from Tampa, Florida. It was a long flight for him, as he couldn't wait to get home on the day he arrived to get a shower. Poini came straight 'o hoko atu hono teuteu'i, vali mo fakakapeti 'o e fale fakamanatu 'o 'Ekuasi mo Fatai. Fakamalo atu kia kinautolu na'e tauhi 'o e 'api ki hono, Sr.Clare, Neniti mo Tiana moe fanau ki hono teuteu'i 'o e 'api ke faka'ofo'ofa ke talitali 'aki e kau folau. Na'e lava mai foki mo Tevita mo Latu, Visilia and daughter Clare, kae pehe ki he foha 'o Falaviena ko Sefo Falemaka, Vaelua, Manoa and Loviani and twins Pefiume and Steven mei 'Amelika. Na'e a'u lelei mai foki mo Sitani, Jennifer mo SepaJr mei Canada.


From our neighbouring Pacific we had uncle Toni aka Holo-ki-ha'a-Havea-lahi with wife Seini, Paame and daughter Vao and son Fonua Maka kae pehe kia 'Isa'ake, Seilala from NZ. Na'e 'osi 'i Tonga ni foki mo Takai & Sita 'Ekuasi. From Aussie we had Tita and Kuti and the girls from Bundaberg kae pehe kia Robert Rea.

Na'e kamata lelei pe polokalama 'i he Monite hono 4 July, but as the days roll on, we realise 'a e kamta ke toe tokolahi ange 'a e kau mai 'a e tokolahi 'o e kolo ki he Reunion. Na'e lava e ngaahi taimi fevahevahe'aki 'o faka'inasi ai e ngaahi a'usia 'o e fononga 'a e famili, tautautefito ki he kaveinga 'o e Reunion 'a ia ko e ngaahi kolosi mo e kalauni kuo tau a'usia. Na'e lava e ngaahi 'a'ahi e Reunion ki he King's birthday parade, ko e 'api ko Toloa, Falemahaki Vaiola kia Sepa kae pehe ki he putu 'o Tokanga ki Tofoa. Na'e loto lelei pe Reunion ke fakahoko e liliu ki he polokalama, 'o ta'ofi e polokalama fakasosiale na'e teu ke fakahoko 'i he hall e Katolika, kae fakalotofale pe 'a e fakasosiale 'i he Lalo Kalosipani pe, pea ne kau mai ai pe mo kinautolu he kolo na'a nau fie afea 'a e fakasosiale fakalotofale ko ia, hange ko e potungaue Palaimeli 'a e siasi LDS, mo e timi volipolo 'a Matahau.


Na'e lava lelei foki hono tapuaki'i 'o e maka fakamanatu ki he fa'itoka 'o Fatai mo Ekuasi kae pehe ki he fa'itoka 'o Tu'akilaumea 'e Fr.'Unaloto. Fakamalo atu ki he kau homelessi mei Hawaii, Etivise Kauvaka mo Lupe Lolohea hono fakapa'anga mai e maka. Na'e taimi tonu ai mo e ngaue atu ki ai 'a uncle Poini, Sitani, Fonua mo Sefo ki hono fokotu'u e maka ki he fa'itoka. Na'e hili e lava atu 'o fa'itoka, pea hoko atu ai pe ki hono tapuaki'i 'e Fr.'Unaloto 'o e fale fakamanatu 'o 'Ekuasi mo Fatai 'a ia na'e langa 'e Napa.


Na'e fiefia foki e Reunion ke fai hano faka'ilonga'i e birthday ta'u 21 'o Sefo Falemaka. We were all glad that Sefo came to join us. Malo 'aupito Viena for sending your boy to our Reunion. Fakamalo atu kia Fr.'Unaloto hono tokanga'i mo tataki 'etau ngaahi misa faka'aho, kae pehe ki he faka'inasi na'e faka'osi 'aki 'i falelotu by us from the second and third genegrations. Kaikehe, na'e lava pe hono evaluate 'o e Reunion. Fakamalo atu ki he sekelitali Toni Rea for summarising the evaluation. I will separately post up the Evaluation and the discussion with regards to the next Reunion on 2019.


Ko ia e fakamalo atu to everyone for contributing to our Reunion. Thank you for your emotional support, your prayers na'e lava ai ikuna'i e Reunion 2016. Pea neongo ne 'i ai e ngaahi tonounou, ka na'e hoko pe ia ko e stepping stone ketau ako ai for the next Reunion.


My apology if i miss out anyone. Kou 'ofa lahi atu kiate kimoutolu.


Hikosi'i
