Kupuna members of the Planning and Coordinating Council of Maui County held an in-person gathering on Wednesday, Dec. 8, for only the second time since the pandemic began at Maui Economic Opportunity in Wailuku.

Twenty-one members at MEO were joined by about 15 via Zoom for the short business meeting and holiday gathering. After the meeting, convened by council President Arleen Gerbig, the group engaged in a holiday painting project, answered 1950s-60s era trivia questions for prizes and shared lunch.

The Planning and Coordinating Council consists of representatives of 60 seniors clubs countywide. MEO, which organized the event, assists senior clubs with recruitment and membership enrollment, advocacy, education and social activities. The objective of this program is to enhance the quality of life for seniors by helping them obtain the benefits of knowledge, companionship and better health.

Zilpah Kaimiola is the program’s senior coordinator, who can be reached by phone at (808) 243-4313, and email at *[email protected]*
