We now have a beautiful, informative new brochure on the campaign to preserve, repair and reopen the historic War Memorial Natatorium in Waikiki. You can find the publication right here.
You’ll soon start to see this brochure at Friends of the Natatorium events around town. But why not print out a few copies now? Share them with ohana and friends. You can help us get the word out.
We’re working to bring the Natatorium back to life because it’s Hawaii’s official monument to more than 10,000 volunteers from the then-territory who responded to the call to serve in World War I. It’s also a beautiful, historic place that reflects so much of what is unique and important about the culture of Hawaii.
It’s an American Treasure
The National Trust for Historic Preservation agrees. Earlier this year, the trust named the Natatorium one of America’s Treasures. Together with the Friends, the Trust sees this moment as a “window of opportunity” to renew and reopen this amazing place. The Trust produced the new brochure to explain why it’s so important to take advantage of that opportunity and how we can do it.
Spread the Word
Let’s spread the word, and let’s get this done.
