Now hosted by the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), the event still provides a special day for local residents 60 and over.
RSVP Program Specialist Christina Mayworm said, “You can just see how many people look forward to this. It’s a way for them to socialize, to learn a little bit more about our community partners. Our vender here are answering questions and sharing about their programs, what they have to offer.”
Participants enjoyed great food and a wide variety of games, while getting information on available services.
But what everyone looks forward to the most is, simply seeing each other again.
77-year-old Beverly Jukkala of Hancock said, “Just seeing all my friends, keep up with everybody—ones that you haven’t seen for a year. We’ve lost a lot of them but we keep them in our thoughts, so A-Okay! Kukkelikuu!”
Over 300 seniors took part in the event.
