Filmmakers in attendance. Film program will be followed by Q&A
Every Monday (rain or shine) 30 to 40 seniors gather to jam on their ukuleles. Jamming and having fun! This group, Hui Aloha Na Makana (Gift of Love), began in 2000. They are invited to share their music to Elders at retirement and nursing homes, birthdays celebration, and special events. They sing in Hawaiian, Japanese, Pilipino and in English. Spreading good will and socializing…especially having fun.
Director: Frances Ito
