Check out the Flag Day art show at Pago Plaza


The local artists of American Samoa proudly put their original works on display for a Flag Day 2015 Art Show, which opened at the Pago Plaza on Wednesday, April 15, 2015.
Entitled “Faafetai Mo Lau Tautua” — which is “Thank you for your Service” the show is dedicated first to our military who have served in the past, as well as those who continue to serve. It is dedicated also to those who serve our people in many ways, be it as teachers, police, healthcare workers, and other public servants.
