Fun at Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center

Our clients at Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center sure do know how to have fun! Recently, they’ve been partaking in some wonderful activities that stimulate their minds and creativity while bolstering creativity.

In March, clients enjoyed a visit by The Hawaii Symphony. Their precise and beautiful melodies impressed our clients, but not as much as when the performers played opposite of one another while reading their music upside down!

The Royal Hawaiian Band Glee Club performed, enticing our clients to sing along to oldies, Japanese favorites, and modern hits. They always know how to get the crowd going!

Last, but certainly not least, clients were able to make their own lucky charm bracelets to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Everyone knows a little green goes a long way on this Irish holiday. Clients created their own good luck charms just in time NOT to be pinched by some devious leprechauns. Erin go Bragh!

Thank you to all of our visitors who help to enrich the lives of our seniors everyday.

 

Adult Day Care Clients Visit Hawaii State Capitol

Clients from Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center adult day care took a special field trip in February to the Hawaii State Capitol.

Traveling downtown, clients were treated to a tour of this iconic site that is filled to the brim with history. Architectural symbolism is apparent throughout the entire building. The House and Senate galleries are open to the public, and clients enjoyed visiting the chambers. They were even able to sit in on a chamber session.

Clients were lucky to be able to visit the Governors Office, and Governor David Ige stopped by to say a quick hello! We would like to thank everyone at the Capitol who made this field trip a memorable one!

Kilohana Visits Honolulu Police Department

A group of our Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center clients traveled down to the Honolulu Police Department Museum to check out some police memorabilia!

Officer Fatu gave clients a wonderful tour that transported everyone through the evolution of law enforcement in Hawaii, from the pre-Cook era to the present and beyond. Clients enjoyed priceless stories and memories, and were able to see firsthand past uniforms, weapons, badges, motorcycles, and more.

Thank you for showing us such a wonderful time, HPD, and thank you for your service!

A Culinary Exploration of Europe

December brings much to celebrate, and Kilohana clients enjoyed spending the month celebrating and learning about Europe!

Kilohana’s “Cooking Club” offers a hands-on experience to create unique dishes, and this month Belgian waffles, a European tradition, were on the menu. The clients sliced their own fresh strawberries and bananas, and even toasted their own Belgian waffles in the center’s toaster oven. The pièce de résistance was the fresh, organic homemade whipped cream on top. Yum!

Clients enjoy afternoon tea at the Moana Surfrider

Tea time!

Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center enjoyed an afternoon excursion to the Moana Surfrider Hotel for a great tea experience! Clients were greeted with lei and sat on the terrace overlooking the ocean. In addition to choosing their teas, clients sampled delicious pastries, petit fours, and other savory delicacies. The chef even came out and demonstrated proper steeping and pouring technique.

Thank you to the Moana Surfrider for a memorable foodie field trip!
