Photos from the Natatorium Memorial Day service (and mahalo nui!)

Mahalo to everyone who came out for the 24th annual Memorial Day Service at the Natatorium!

We want to thank our engaging speakers, Gen. Gary North, VA health care executive Tom Driskill and centenarian Young Fun Choy (represented by his daughter, Jan).

Thanks also to Aaron Ho, the Air Force Honor Guard, Chaplain Anthony Wiggins for his moving invocation and benediction, Olana Ai and her keiki hula dancers, and musicians (including Cyril Pahinui) who made the ceremony so special.

And we especially want to thank all the veterans who came out to remember their fallen comrades with us. It was an honor to be with them.

We’ll have highlights of the event for you in the days ahead. We’ll start with these photos from Star-Advertiser photographer Bruce Asato. Great job. Mahalo, Bruce!

More to come. Meantime, the Friends of the Natatorium wish everyone a wonderful Memorial Day. Aloha!
