Hawaiian themed event set for senior community Friday, Aug. 9

Canterbury Manor, an independent senior community, will celebrate 19 years in service with a luau-lineup.

The celebration will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 9 at 703 Callahan Dr., in Bremerton.

A Hawaiian feast featuring a roast pig and all the fixings kicks off the event at 11 a.m. Hula class at 1 p.m. and Hawaiian dance instruction at 3 p.m. offer residents and attendees the opportunity to exercise.

“This form of exercise strengthens bones and muscles, tones the entire body, improves posture and balance, which can prevent falls, increases stamina and flexibility, reduces stress and tension and helps prevent illnesses,” said Carol Cummings, BSN, RN, and a Certified Wellness coach.

Seniors and the general public can enjoy a surfing photo op and caricatures at 1 p.m. Sandcastle building and a discussion of Hawaiian culture will round out the afternoon.

All ages are welcome to attend this free event. For more information go to
