Lively Luau Entertainment Captivates Cypress Seniors
The Cypress Senior Center held their annual Luau on Friday, August 13, 2010. More than 200 attended the event which was sponsored by AssistaLife Home Care. The gala celebration included entertainment by ukulele and guitar players from Cypress Church. The musical group included J. P. Del Mundo, Matthew Chai and Mike Chai. There were also three hula dancers who performed many traditional Polynesian routines including the Rope Dance.
The Luau event was planned and coordinated by the staff of the Cypress Senior Center. The Cypress Church Community Service Team assisted with decorations, serving and clearing. Guests were treated to an exotic menu that included Teriyaki chicken, Hawaiian rice, chef cut veggies and tropical fruit salad. Unique suckers with cake on the inside provided an unexpected treat. Many special gifts were awarded to event participants during the door prize drawing.
The Cypress Senior Center is located at 9031 Grindlay Street and provides many activities and services for area residents.
