Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA) announces its first outreach program of the 2013-2014 season.

In partnership with the Edmonds Senior Center and Áegis Living of Edmonds, this event will feature slack key and hula masters Keola and Moanalani Beamer, in a special demonstration to precede their 7:30 p.m. performance at ECA, Mālama Ko Aloha: Keep Your Love.

This is a free, all-ages welcome, Hawaiian cultural event, and will be held from 11 a.m. to noon Friday, Oct. 25, at the Edmonds Senior Center, 220 Railroad Ave., Edmonds.

Community members of all ages are invited to learn about the Hawaiian concepts of "aloha" – living in harmony with others – and "mahalo" – living in gratitude. Keola Beamer will also share a few songs, with Moanalani dancing hula.
