SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii - Military children and youth of all ages will be honored at the annual free "Day for Kids," Sept. 25, 1-4 p.m., at the School Age Center, Building 1280, here.

Child, Youth and School Services; Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation; in conjunction with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, have presented Day for Kids each year since 2003. The event sets aside a specific day to provide an opportunity for meaningful interaction between adults and children.

The Little Ninjas and Hula Maidens from FMWR's Schools of Knowledge, Inspiration, Exploration and Skills Unlimited, will entertain the crowd.
