Rotary to host candidates

The Rotary Club of Honolulu will host a forum for the city’s four leading mayoral candidates at the club’s weekly meeting at noon today in the Royal Hawaiian Hotel Monarch Room. Participating candidates are Peter Carlisle, Kirk Caldwell, Panos Prevedouros and Rod Tam. The forum, which is planned to run from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m., will be moderated by Linda Coble. Members of other Rotary clubs are welcome, as are non-Rotarians with a member’s invitation.

Soldiers join community projects

About 45 soldiers from Schofield Barracks took part in a variety of community service projects Sunday at Old Kona Airport Park and Kohanaiki on the Big Island, the Hawaii Tribune-Herald reports.

Working with Friends for Fitness and local Rotary clubs, the soldiers removed rubble and rock from an anchialine pond near the southern end of the Makaeo walking and jogging path. They also created additional walkways that interconnect with the path and go through planted areas.

Kona Rotarians have been working for months to restore the old fishpond in honor of Francis Kuailani Sr., a retired Kaloko- Honokohau National Historical Park superintendent and longtime Rotarian who died in December.
