Prospective Scouts of America’s Justice Kawakami, the smallest person at Burns Field on Saturday, got help from the Koloa Lions Club, the West Side Lions Club and the Scouts of America Troop 334, sponsored by Holy Cross Church, and Scout parents to clean the Burns Field area of trash.
“In a short amount of time, 19 garbage bags of litter and assorted car and bicycle parts were part of the haul for Saturday morning,” said Lion Russ Hasegawa. “Thank you to all who participated in this community-service project.”
