Hui O Hula enjoys celebrating LWers’ milestones
Robin Smith of Mutual 16 recently celebrated her 70th birthday in Clubhouse 3 with friends and family. Gail Levitt invited Hui O Hula to perform a few dances. The birthday girl and a few friends even showed off how they remain “Young at Heart” by joining the group, though some were too full to stand up and danced in their chairs instead. The room was filled with joy and laughter all evening.
Smith, who has one daughter and two grandchildren, moved to Leisure World from nearby Long Beach. She helps the Children’s League raise funds for children in need and is a member of the international Red Hat Society.
Hawaiian dance lessons are given free twice a week: on Tuesdays at 1 p.m. upstairs at Clubhouse 6, and on Thursdays at 1 p.m. at Veterans Plaza. Beginning dancers or those who only want to “walk in, hula out” are welcome on Tuesdays from 1-2 p.m., when basic steps are taught.
For a performance schedule, call (562) 431-2242 or email Jojo@huiohula.com.
