Members of the Lions Club of Kona worked on a civic improvement project Saturday. It took more than 15 volunteers to build and paint five wooden picnic tables and 12 concrete benches.
The benches and picnic tables will be donated to schools and parks in West Hawaii, including Kona Pacific Public Charter School in Kealakekua.
Schools, parks and nonprofit organizations interested in receiving a donated bench or picnic table can call Glenn Uchimura at 895-8564 or email@example.com.
The Lions Club of Kona has roughly 65 members and meets on the third Monday of every month at 6:30 p.m. at Teshima’s Restaurant in Honalo.
