A foodie field trip to Hale Vietnam
Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center, keeping up with their foodie field trip tradition, recently took a trip to Hale Vietnam!
From pho to summer rolls, clients had a blast dining on authentic Vietnamese cuisine. There were smiles all around for a new food adventure! Best of all, clients stopped at Via Gelato for dessert. What a perfect way to cool down on a warm summer day.
Kilohana dines out at Assaggio
Our Kilohana foodies recently traveled to Ala Moana Shopping Center to dine at one of their favorites—Assaggio! With great service, an inviting atmosphere, and delicious food, it was definitely a dining experience to remember. It was also an extra special day because we celebrated a birthday for one of our clients. Cheers to many more!
Kilohana receives flower donation
Fred and Kate Events recently donated several flower arrangements to our clients at Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center. What a wonderful surprise to see these upcycled wedding flowers bring smiles to our clients and staff! Special thanks to Kate and her clients, who thought of donating the flowers and extending their lifespan of joy.
Visiting the Japanese Cultural Center
Clients at Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center took a field trip to the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii. Clients toured the current exhibit, Okage Sama De: I am what I am because of you.
Everyone was able to take a journey back and to learn the legacies and values passed on from generation to generation – starting with the first wave of Japanese immigrants in 1868 – that are now weaved into the Hawaii landscape and are still carried on today. As an extra special treat, everyone learned more about Hawaii’s very own Ellison Onizuka, the first person of Japanese ancestry and first Asian American to become a U.S. astronaut and travel into space.
It was an honor to learn about the treasured stories shared at the center. Mahalo for a wonderful visit!
Celebrating Father’s Day at Kilohana!
What better way to kick off Father’s Day weekend and celebrate summer than a good old-fashioned water gun fight?
Clients at Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center enjoyed some fun in the sun to celebrate fathers and the important role they play in their families. Recognizing their fun-loving spirit, staff served clients root beer floats and set them up with materials to have a water balloon and water gun fight. Smiles were seen all around!
Thank you to all of the fathers and fatherly figures out there who make a difference in lives everyday.
