The County of Hawai‘i Department of Parks and Recreation announces Elderly Recreation Services. (ERS) will begin summer classes for seniors on Monday, July 26, 2021. ERS will offer a variety of classes such as Yoga, Zumba, Tai Chi, arts & crafts, dance, sports and much more. Class participants must be 55 years of age or older.
“Our Elderly Activities Division staff worked hard to develop health and safety protocols that will ensure our senior classes will be safe and enjoyable for all instructors and participants,” said Maurice Messina, Director of Parks and Recreation. “In keeping with the Mayor’s current COVID-19 Rule, we will have reduced class sizes and will adjust as necessary with future class offerings if there is a change in allowable gathering sizes.”
Classes will run for nine weeks, through the week ending Friday, September 24th with different classes offered in Hilo, Pāhoa, Mt. View, Volcano, Nā‘ālehu, Hōlualoa and Kailua-Kona. “We are thankful to our many instructors who make it possible for our seniors to learn new skills, recreate and socialize responsibly through these classes during these trying times,” said Messina.
