County to celebrate National Senior Health & Fitness Day

The County of Maui will celebrate the 21st annual National Senior Health & Fitness Day at noon Wednesday with a proclamation signing by Mayor Alan Arakawa on the front lawn of the Kalana O Maui building in Wailuku.

The proclamation will be followed by an EnhanceFitness demonstration featuring the program’s trainers and participants led by EF Master Trainer Paula Keele.
