A breakfast and rally will kick off the event, which focuses on cleaning up 'Ewa communities. From 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. volunteers will work on restoring the 'Ewa Mansion, a historic structure that will serve as a new community center; cleaning and leveling the community baseball field at Little Mahiko Park; and cleaning up One'ula Beach Park.

The Weed & Seed program is a collaborative strategy among law enforcement, nonprofit organizations, private businesses and residents to reclaim, restore and rebuild neighborhoods.


Soldiers repair school sidewalk

Soldiers from the 25th Infantry Division (Light) will join students and staff from Leilehua High School at 2 p.m. today to dedicate a sidewalk repaired by soldiers from the 725th Main Support Battalion. Repairing the sidewalk was part of the Army's community service effort to help O'ahu schools.

The Army paid for the $1,850 project from the Commanding General's School Partnership Program fund. The fund, which totaled $70,000, is being used to help officials at 40 O'ahu schools buy books, beautify campuses and replace equipment.
