15 Craigside residents find purpose in giving back to the community! To show their gratitude and appreciation for their Nuuanu Fire Station 25 neighborhood heroes, residents partnered with the Arcadia Family of Companies to make a donation. The firefighters visited 15 Craigside and were greeted with lei, cards, and a small gift from residents and employees. Some attendees brought banners and flags to show their support. This was a great gathering to honor and give back to the hardworking, brave, and dedicated professionals who sacrifice their lives to take care of the community. The event was filled with positive energy, love, and happiness!
After taking a hiatus during the pandemic, the Arcadia Jewelry Sale is back! Residents, employees, family, and friends attended to admire and purchase beautiful treasures. All jewelry donated by residents, family, and friends were priced between $4 to $98. Fine jewelry was informally appraised and marked at 50% off the retail price. Proceeds support the Arcadia Health Care Center!
The Arcadia Adult Day Care clients visited their neighbors at the Central Union Church Thrift Store run by the Women’s League Ministry. Everyone browsed the store and looked at the wide variety of donation items. The earnings are used for scholarships, church ministry work, and donated to non-profit organizations in Hawaii.
Hale Ola Kino by Arcadia residents were excited to take a ride on the Skyline! Attendees hopped on at the Aloha Stadium station and were able to take in the views from a higher perspective, passing through urban and rural landscapes. The round trip to East Kapolei and back took about 40 minutes. Residents had so much fun experiencing the new rail.
15 Craigside residents were delighted with halo-halo on a very hot day! The dessert is made with mixed fruits, macapuno, and nata de coco topped with ice, condensed milk, and ube ice cream.
The Arcadia Adult Day Care clients made adorable tulip crafts. Tulips symbolize perfect and deep love. They are ideal to give to someone who you have a profound, unconditional love for.
