More lei needed for Memorial Day

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:43 p.m. HST, May 26, 2012

The city is asking the public for more lei to make sure the graves of veterans in Oahu cemeteries are decorated on Memorial Day.

Volunteers made lei at Honolulu Hale or dropped them off at fire stations and district parks on Friday.

About 30,000 lei had been collected by Friday night, but 50,000 lei are needed to decorate each grave this Monday.

To help, you can drop off lei at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl.

If you look at the pic of this kid in the paper the SA positioned it directly above a sex offender story. In my mind that was extremely poor positioning. I feel sorry for the parents of the kid if they are the types that keep the whole page as a momento...

There are a lot of plumeria flowers out there, but these trees are now too tall to pick from. The fire dept and commercial trucks with cherry pickers should volunteer their services and go around the island picking the much needed flowers.

Lei - there is no "s". The plural and singular form of "lei" is the same, like "deer".

Both are acceptable. It depends on your perspective. Lei is plural in Hawaiian. However, in anglican english, it's "leis".
