History is definitely the topic Feb. 4 when the North Shore Chamber of Commerce’s Historic Lecture Series continues with illustrated talks by two area residents in Historic Haleiwa Gym, where they’ll discuss “the flying girls of the 40s” and the history of North Shore aviation.
The program begins at 7 p.m., featuring Vera Stone Williams, author of WASPs, the Women Airforce Service Pilots of World War II, considered a groundbreaking effort to look into the group of skilled female civilian pilots who flew essential noncombat missions during the war. Aviator and historian Capt. Rick Rogers will then discuss “The History of Aviation on the North Shore.”
Admission is $10 in advance or $12 at the door, and the program will include light refreshments. Tickets are available at Kai Ku Hale, Strong Current and the chamber office weekdays from 1 to 5 p.m. For more information, call 6374558.
The lecture is sponsored by Stearman Biplane Rides.
