Easter Seals seeks families
Easter Seals celebrates its 60th anniversary next month and is seeking families that have been touched by the organization through the decades. Families are asked to submit personal, inspirational stories.
On April 23, families, staff, volunteers and board members of Easter Seals will gather at Les Murakami Stadium for a reunion and take over the field for an aerial photograph. Participants will be provided with an "I'm history" T-shirt and treated to a University of Hawaii baseball game.
Easter Seals was established on March 26, 1946, providing services to individuals with disabilities and other special needs.
