Hawaii Theatre Tour

Arcadia residents and Arcadia At Home members visited the Hawaii Theatre. They took a tour of the historic theatre and learned about its founding, architecture, and changes it underwent through the ages, including the major restoration work in the early 1990s. At the end of the tour, attendees got up on stage to see what it’s like from a performer’s point of view.

The Hawaii Theatre in Honolulu's Chinatown is a historic gem, showcasing a rich array of performances since 1922. Its Spanish Mission-style architecture and vibrant cultural offerings make it a cherished venue in Hawaii. With its rich history, the Hawaii Theatre continues to enchant audiences, embodying the spirit of the Aloha State.

Pali Lookout

The Arcadia Adult Day Care clients went on a visit to Pali Lookout, where they enjoyed breathtaking panoramic views of Oahu's windward coast and the lush Koolau mountains. Located high above the Nuuanu Valley, this scenic overlook provides a perfect vantage point for admiring the rugged cliffs, verdant forests, and sparkling Pacific Ocean below. Everyone had a lovely time taking in the natural beauty of our island.

Aloha Hour

Arcadia residents had a great time at their monthly Aloha Hour. Hosted by the Solarium floor, everyone indulged in delicious pupu including poke, shrimp cocktail, tofu salad, and pork bao buns, along with their beverage of choice. Pianist Terry Tom stopped by and played some soothing music while residents enjoyed each others company.

A Hui Hou Gillian

After four years working at Arcadia, Gillian Davis, Programs Manager, will be relocating to Los Angeles to be closer to family and begin a new journey! Gillian has enhanced programs in so many ways and touched the lives of our residents. We are so grateful for her dedication and hard work. Gillian finally tried Zippy’s and had her first ever loco moco!

Waikiki Aquarium

Hale Ola Kino by Arcadia residents took a trip to the Waikiki Aquarium! Attendees explored the exhibits and were immersed in the vibrant and diverse underwater world. Every display tells a story of the balance between predator and prey, and the interconnectedness of life beneath the waves.

Teacher Appreciation

The Arcadia Adult Day Care celebrated National Teacher Appreciation Week, where they honored the 15 clients at the daycare who formerly served as educators, enriching our community with their wisdom and experience. Amongst them, Anela Bartels, Activities Coordinator, showcased her appreciation through endearing gifts she crafted herself.

Hongwanji Mission School

Hongwanji Mission School students volunteered at the Health Care Center at 15 Craigside. They performed bon dance and songs on the ukulele in hopes of building their confidence being in front of a crowd. One resident, Mrs. Bernice Valenzona, was so appreciative of the performance that it brought tears to her eyes. Mahalo to all of the volunteers!

Volunteer Appreciation

The Arcadia Adult Day Care Center celebrated Volunteer Appreciation Week with Mike Rodriguez. Clients expressed gratitude to him for sharing his life stories and creating an environment where they feel at ease sharing their own stories. His dedication shines through as he skillfully encourages clients to interact with one another to form meaningful relationships.

“June is Pride Month – a time for everyone to recognize and celebrate the importance of inclusion and diversity. In honor of this, I share a quote from John Lennon, ‘It matters not who you love, where you love, why you love, when you love, or how you love. It matters only that you love.’” -Suzie Schulberg, President & CEO
