When you’re a member of the EWC “family” the world opens up and you have friends throughout the region — whether in capital cities or in remote villages. Wherever I traveled, EWC alumni extended generous hospitality and provided much appreciated guidance. When I sprained my ankle on one trip alumni showed up at my hotel with walking sticks and canes. I still have them. They’re a reminder of the bond of friendship we share. I’m very grateful to the alumni for their kindness and for their commitment to continuing the East-West Center’s mission. Being involved with EWC/EWCA International Conferences was always a rewarding highlight. I’ve worked on ten international alumni conferences and each of them hold a special memory for me. Joining hands and singing Aloha Oe at the close of each conference ends with the phrase, “until we meet again” . . . I look forward to “meeting again” with each of you in the future.
Working with alumni across the region and U.S. was one of the most rewarding and important highlights of my long career at the East-West Center. Our alumni are the Center’s most valuable and important legacy.
Thank you for this blog post I received by email about Karen Knudsen. I am writing to inquire about the link(s) to the blog site. Whether I click or copy and past the URL into my browser (and I’ve tried several browsers), I only get to an error page saying “OOPS! THAT PAGE CAN’T BE FOUND.” Do you have any alternatives?
Thank you, Mary Hammond
Hi Mary, sorry this response is so late. I just saw your question now. Not sure if Sharon already replied to you but in case she didn’t, you should be able to access the post by going to https://wordpress.com/post/ewcablog.org/7201. Let me know if you are still unable to view it. Thanks, Noreen
