selected for one of HHF’s prestigious honor awards.
    The presentation and discussion will be preceded by a recep-
tion featuring appetizers from the Royal Hawaiian’s Aha Aina
menu and locally-grown ingredients. After the presentation,
guests are invited to stay for the Curators of Hawaiian Music

counted pricing available for event guests).

tecture. To make reservations, please contact the Hawai‘i Theatre

A
         t the final meeting of the Waikiki War
           Memorial Natatorium Task Force on
            September 24, nine of the Mayor’s
appointed Task Force members voted for demo-
lition of the Natatorium. Three members voted
for preservation, and four members were absent.
The task force chair’s vote for demolition was
not counted in the total, as it would be used only
in case of a tie.
     The votes in favor of preserving, stabilizing
and re-engineering the pool were cast by mem-
bers representing Historic Hawai‘i Foundation,
the O‘ahu Veteran’s Council and the Friends of
the Natatorium. The City has invited the minor-
ity voters to submit a dissenting opinion that
will be included with the final report to Mayor
Mufi Hannemann. Three of the members who
were absent from the meeting will also join in
the minority report.
     In explaining the dissenting opinion, HHF Executive                  Hannemann said that he will be taking the Task Force’s

          Daniel K. Akaka introduced a bill to determine if
          World War II internment campsites in Hawai‘i may

    JCCH nominated Honouliuli to the Hawai‘i Register of
Historic Places after conducting an archaeological survey of
the former internment camp site. The site was listed on the

         projects affecting historic properties under Section
         106 of the National Historic Preservation Act
