The Hawaii Red Cross Centennial Military Canteen Event celebrates Hawaii Red Cross Services to the Armed Forces throughout the past 100 years. Entertainment was by the Liberty Belles with Cathy Foy (Miss Hawaii 1975) Sally Davis and Jeanne Kapela (who was Miss Hawaii 2015). This is a special performance of “God Bless America” by Jim Nabors (left) and Lea Woods Almanza. The theme is Donut Dollies with Red Cross volunteers and staff dressed in WWII Red Cross uniforms as a throwback to our service to the armed forces during WWII. There also was a WWII era Red Cross MASH tent and ambulance to help transport the viewers back in time. It was held on the front lawn at the Hawaii Army Museum, Fort DeRussy, Waikiki.
