ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: President Barack Obama saluted volunteer efforts by former President George H.W. Bush at the White House Monday. Obama and first lady Michelle Obama honored the 5,000th "Daily Point of Light" award recognizing a volunteer or nonprofit service providing organization. Bush established the award in 1989 as part of his efforts to recognize and promote volunteer work and will be at the event. The two presidents were last together at the dedication of the presidential library of Bush's son, former President George W. Bush, in April. Bush, 89, was confined to a wheelchair at that event. The award is going to an Iowa couple, Floyd Hammer and Kathy Hamilton, who are the founders of a nonprofit that delivers free meals to children in the United States and around the world. The meeting with the Bushes comes two weeks after the president participated at a event in Tanzania with former President George W. Bush.
