Guam - Earlier this month a Guam delegation represented our island at the 11th Festival of Pacific Arts in the Solomon Islands. And now Guam is set to host the 2016 festivities for the first time, and its organizing committee is moving full steam ahead.

According to committee chairperson Therese Arriola, because all eyes will be on Guam, the committee has a lot of work cut out for them. "I have no doubt in my mind that the people of Guam with our hospitality and the infrastructure that we have in place that we will deliver the Festival of Pacific Arts in 2016, with the wonderful Chamorro hospitality and style."

The committee is meeting twice a month and is in the process of implementing execution committees. She adds a web site will be launched by July 31 on progress leading to the festivities. To view the website next week, visit
