Spring is here and it’s the season of rebirth and rejuvenation! Outdoor. Indoor. Or both. Sit. Stand. Move. Interact. Anyway you want it. Though it is the time to come alive! So here are just a few activities to do to keep you busy during this spring.

1) Go Bows! Get out and cheer on the Rainbow Warrior baseball team. See pg. 11

2) I believe we need to have more intergenerational programs, such as the One-Mile Project featured in last month’s issue with the class from ‘Iolani School. We need to cherish our kupuna as they have a wealth of experience and values. To all our kupuna, I encourage you to pass down all your values, work ethic and stories of old Hawai‘i, and there is no better way than spending time with your children, grandchildren and even great-grandchildren.

3) Listen to music and your favorite radio station, AM 690 (KHNR). Tune in Saturdays for two shows:

  • Frank B. Shaner’s Baby Boomer radio show, 4 – 5 p.m.
  • Generations radio show, 5 – 6 p.m.

To listen to past radio shows, visit BabyBoomerShow.com and Generations808.com

4) Expand your knowledge, mind and ideas about aging in place, making each year golden! Attend this informational workshop — Generations publisher, Percy Ihara, will be the keynote speaker on “Aging in Hawai‘i.”

6) It’s the right cause for the right reason: give back to our community … just by walking.
