HOUSTON -

President Barack Obama plans to welcome president George H. W. Bush to the White House.

The two presidents are scheduled to appear together at the White House on Monday to honor service volunteers with Points of Light, Bush 41's nonprofit charitable organization.

The Daily Point of Light Award recognizes volunteers who have made a difference in their communities.

A White House official said Mr. Bush would be joined by his wife, Barbara, and other members of the Bush family, including Neil Bush, one of Bush's sons and a brother of former president George W. Bush.
