Clients Exercise Creativity at Excursion

Our creative clients are at it again! Bead It in Kaimuki hosted Central Union Church Adult Day Care & Day Health clients for a day of bracelet making! With the ability to express their creativity, clients’ bracelets were truly an expression of their artistic minds at work! After working up an appetite at the bracelet making workshop, everyone walked over to Verbano Italiano Ristorante and enjoyed a delicious Italian lunch, showing off their newly created jewelry. Mahalo to everyone who made our outing so special!

Musical Performance Transcends Age and Language

Music is in the air! The Nagaoka Boys & Girls Choir is in town for a musical collaboration with the Kaiser High School Band set to perform at Central Union Church this month. As a special sneak peek, clients and staff were treated to a heavenly performance and gifted with a custom koi printed art display and one thousand origami cranes symbolizing peace. While the songs they performed were in Japanese, the aloha in the music they shared poured out of their mouths and into the hearts of our kupuna bringing smiles and memories that will last longer than the performance itself.

We would like to thank Pamela DeBoard with the Hawaii Education of the ARTS, Shigeru Kambayashi of the Nagaoka City Foundation for Art & Culture Promotion, the Central Union Church staff, and Nagaoka Boys & Girls Choir for coordinating this special performance.

Howdy from the farm at Central Union Church Adult Day Care & Day Health Center!
