Ms. Nani Lozier volunteers at the Hayward Area Senior Center as a hula and ukulele instructor. Nani began volunteering in 2005 and has proven to be very dependable and reliable; rarely missing a day in the past 10 years.
She started by teaching seniors simple chords, sing-along songs in Hawaiian and English, and strum tunes for hula and voice accompaniment.
Nani was a professional singer and dancer who loves to perform and teach how to tell a story with the hands to the beautiful sounds of Polynesian music. She has a lot of passion for promoting the Hawaiian culture and participates in many Bay Area activities.
In addition to her regular instruction, Nani is a great help with special events. She and her
students always perform for special events at the Senior Center, such as the Hawaiian Luau, International Potluck, Father’s Day, and birthday celebrations. Also, the Senior Center has a Talent Show that has grown in popularity over the years, and we can thank Nani for not only performing, but for helping organize the talent and act as hostess.
Nani is dedicated to the Hayward Senior Center, and we are very thankful for all of the time and energy she donates. Nani is a great asset to the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District and we are pleased the Board of Directors recognize her and thank her for her volunteer service.
Ms. Lozier was invited to attend the April 27, 2015 Board of Directors’ meeting to receive her certificate. She will be eligible for the Volunteer of the Year Award for 2015.
