We are also happy to announce an educational event coming up on January 2, 2016. Below is the notice that was recently issued.
Why Should the Community Support Maritime Heritage?
Please join us as we continue to celebrate Falls of Clyde’s 137 birthday with a special public presentation by Dr. Ray Ashley, President/CEO of the Maritime Museum of San Diego. Dr. Ashley will discuss his recent presentation to the 17th Annual International Congress of Maritime Museums in Hong Kong, The World’s Great Historic Ships: A Multinational UNESCO World Heritage Site. He will also discuss the contributions that historic ships make to their waterfronts and their much needed role in bringing an understanding of the critical importance of the maritime industry to the community. Falls of Clyde is one of the historic ships mentioned in his presentation.
The talk will be held on Saturday, January 2, 2016 at 6 p.m. at the Foreign Trade Zone, Homer A. Maxey Int’l Trade Resource Center, M-401, Pier 2, 521 Ala Moana Blvd., Honolulu.
The talk is sponsored by Friends of Falls of Clyde, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve and restore Falls of Clyde for her historical and educational importance to the maritime history of Hawaii and the world. See our website at
