Generations Magazine's first cover

Generations Magazine’s first cover

Generations Magazine was originally started in 2006 by Trade Publishing’s Kini Popo. His vision was that the magazine would be dedicated solely to our senior marketplace.

In three-plus years, Generations gained loyal readers who loved the magazine. Yet, with the downturn in the economy, like many companies in Hawaii, Generations took a break in 2009.

In 2010, Percy Ihara took over the reigns of Generations Magazine to become the publisher/editor. The rebirth of Generations began with its first issue in October 2010, featuring KHON2 news anchor Kirk Matthews. The magazine made its debut at Honolulu’s annual Senior Fair that year.

For all of 2023, Cynthia Arnold worked with Generations partners and learned a lot about running a publication.  Starting with the January/February 2024 issue, she became the new publisher/owner. Cynthia has already surrounded herself with staff members dedicated to continue providing seniors and their families with information on various issues facing our mature community.  Generations will remain “Hawaii’s Resource for Life.”

Readers benefit from a variety of valuable information, ranging from healthcare, finances, legal matters to caregiving topics and much more.

Generations Magazine wants to hear from you, our readers and supporters. Please send your comments, pictures and events to Cynthia Arnold at so she can share them with our readers.

Lastly, we will continue to provide resourceful and valuable information via our magazine, workshops, special events, and our website.
