OCC Pavilion 1915
After the thatched roof of the old Outrigger Canoe Club Pavilion caught fire in 1914, the dance floor was taken apart piece by piece and moved toward the beachfront. Pillars were erected and the dance floor reassembled on the second floor of the structure so canoes could be stored underneath. A new roof was added.

Members of the Women’s Auxiliary of the Outrigger Canoe Club worked for months on a flag listing Club members serving in the armed forces during World War I. Wives, mothers, sisters and sweethearts were encouraged to stitch names of the men on a star which was sewn to the flag. When it was completed there were 130 stars on the banner. The banner hung in the Club's open Pavilion. Note trophy case on right holding six silver trophies. Manager's desk is in front.
