On Wednesday April 24, Hale Makua residents had the opportunity to visit the Maui Ocean Center. The Center is one of the most visited attractions in Hawaii and it showcases Hawaii’s unique marine life and culture. Accompanied by Kahului Activities staff and volunteers, residents saw fish, sharks and sea turtles during their tour. They were even able to touch some of the sea life in the outdoor tanks! In the photo, residents pose in front of an outdoor fountain.
This story illustrates Eden Principle #5: “An Elder-centered community imbues daily life with variety and spontaneity by creating an environment in which unexpected and unpredictable interactions and happenings can take place. This is the antidote to boredom.”
