The City & County of Honolulu’s Department of Parks & Recreation held their 3rd annual Outstanding Senior Recognition Program on Thursday, April 17th at the McCoy Pavilion. This event gives the City an opportunity to recognize outstanding senior club members and program volunteers.

The District Council Executive Boards and Outstanding Seniors from all four districts on O‘ahu were introduced and awarded a Certificate of Recognition along with a commemorative bowl. There were seventy individuals representing twenty-six senior clubs, four senior councils and their senior softball program.

The program was run by Roger Watanabe, Senior Section Coordinator, with the help from Steve Santiago and Randy Yasuhara, Senior Recreation Specialists. All three gentlemen were also applauded for their work with seniors.

The City also acknowledged those who contributed to making their program so successful. Generations Magazine’s Editor/Publisher, Percy Ihara, and I were given beautiful certificates and a commemorative bowl, which I put my car keys in every day!
