The Celtic Club has been transporting the residents and staff of 11 area nursing homes to the beach this summer through it's Happy Luau Beach Party Days featuring island/beach band the Waikiki Three comprised of Beverly Blass, Dennis Akers and Shari Guttman.

Starting in May 17 and running through Aug. 29, the Celtic Club and the Waikiki Three (sometimes Four and Five) are providing free summer entertainment at nursing homes in Akron, Barberton, Brimfield, Cuyahoga Falls, Hudson, Louisville, Northfield, Portage Lakes, Stow, Streetsboro and Tallmadge.

On July 10th the Celtic Club and the Waikiki Three performed at the St. Luke Lutheran Community in Portage Lakes. Due to the heavy rainstorm that afternoon the power in the building was out and the band had to perform an acoustic set in the dark flashlights and a lantern.
