About 15 Seminole seniors from Tampa made a 4,500-mile journey to Hawaii in April. The group flew from Tampa to San Francisco and on to the Big Island for a nine-day trip that included a variety of culture activities and sightseeing. The seniors met with Samoans and attended a traditional luau. They also visited Kona coffee crops and a volcano, took a boat tour of the island, spent time at a black sand beach and some even tried snorkeling.
The travelers included Anita Osceola, Nancy Frank, Peggy Cubis, Susie Doctor, Linda L. Henry, Trystyn Storm (chaperone), Barbara Henry, Linda O. Henry, Clarence Motlow, Lisa Motlow (spouse), Colleen Henry, Richard Henry (staff), Herbert Jim (staff), Naomi Sherwood (spouse), Rosie Alanis (staff) and Joel Simmons (staff/EMT).
