says Liz Perry, who’s been a mem- ber for 50-plus years, and it’s safe to say most members would whole- heartedly agree. The Club is a place where people gather. It’s a place to spend time with and host family and friends. It’s a place tomake new connections, to form lifelong rela- tionships and create lasting memo- ries. As most members know, OCC weatheredmany storms throughout its 114-year history—two world wars, financial crises, a move from its orig- inal home inWaik ī k ī to our current location, andmost recently, a global pandemic. Throughout the past two years, the dedicated staff andmembers found creative solutions to continue the traditions and carry forth the mission of being a place where mem- bers can commune with sun and sand and sea, be a place where good fellowship and aloha prevail and a place where the sports of old Hawai‘i shall always have a home. From vari- ous virtual athletic events to offering groceries to-go, the teamwas able to quickly pivot the operations and amenities to keep the spirit of OCC alive during these trying times.
