It's time to recognize our Kupuna's incredible accomplishments.

Nancy Yamaguchi is celebrating 50 years of heartfelt service to Arcadia residents. She joined Arcadia as a Nurse Aide in 1968 and is now the assistant director of CNA services. Arcadia showed their appreciation for her dedication with a surprise celebration!

Luella Spadaro is celebrating her 100th birthday. She loves music. She's music philanthropist and a long-time supporter of the Honokaa Jazz Band. She's also celebrating national jazz appreciation month!

Happy Birthday to Lenora Cho! She just turned 100 and has an incredible story. She became an intelligence analyst for the military during World War II. She was assigned to Hawaii as a recruiter, where she met her husband, David Cho. To celebrate her 100th birthday, Lenora's family came from the east coast to present her a blanket that proudly states her motto: "Joy, Love & Laughter!"
