Waiau Seniors Club helps string together Memorial Day leis

 

Pearl City's Waiau Seniors Club joined other District 3 seniors on Friday at Waipahu District Park to string together leis that will be delivered to Punchbowl National Cemetery in Honolulu for this weekend's Memorial Day Services.

Hawaii Boy Scout and Cub Scout volunteers will meet up at Punchbowl National Cemetery on Sunday to place the leis on the graves of our fallen heroes.

It's an annual tradition that community volunteers from the District 3 Seniors Clubs, Lions Clubs, high schools, and other organizations, come together to string a couple thousand plumeria leis for Memorial Day.

Mahalo to all the volunteers for their dedication and never ending support of our community and its residents. They truly represent the spirit of giving to those who are living, and to those who have come before us.
