Springfield Place recently celebrated summer with a community luau. Residents, staff, and family members joined us at our community for a feast, celebrating all the fun of summer. Learn more about our luau and make plans to join us for our next event!
A Spirit of Aloha at Springfield Place
Most people know that “aloha” is a Hawaiian greeting used by locals and tourists alike to say hello or goodbye. However, for those more familiar with the Hawaiian culture, the meaning of aloha goes much deeper than a passive greeting. It’s a spirit and a way of life of the Hawaiian people. In fact, one early teaching says,
“Aloha is being a part of all, and all being a part of me. When there is pain – it is my pain. When there is joy – it is also mine. I respect all that is as part of the Creator and part of me. I will not willfully harm anyone or anything. When food is needed I will take only my need and explain why it is being taken. The earth, the sky, the sea are mine to care for, to cherish and to protect.”
On a more basic level, aloha can also be translated literally as “joyfully sharing life.” That’s what we do at Springfield Place. We offer high-quality assisted living services that allow our residents and their families to joyfully share life today. Every day, we embody a spirit of Aloha.
We were excited to showcase our own spirit of aloha and our way of joyfully sharing life by hosting a luau for residents, families, and friends. The event was inside and outside featuring live steel drum music and Polynesian-inspired food. The event was a big hit with residents loving the food and music. One resident commented, “It was great to see the entire Springfield Place team at the Luau working together, and they did a fantastic job!” Another resident enjoyed the music saying, “I’ve never experienced live steel drum music – and I loved it!”
We’d love to share our spirit of Aloha with you! Come and see how we strive to joyfully share life at Springfield Place!
