HONOLULU (AP) - Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell says the city will collect lei donations for placement on graves at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific on Memorial Day.

The city aims to collect 38,000 lei for the Punchbowl graves.

The city says the lei must be made of fresh flowers or ti leaves. They must measure 20-24 inches before tying. The lei must be tied.

People may drop off lei at community parks between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Friday. Fire stations will accept lei from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and 6:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday.

The mayor's Memorial Day Service at Punchbowl will be held at 8:30 a.m. Monday.
