Mural! Community! Family! Pacific-ness! AMAZING......Day 1

Beautiful words from the one and only Vaimoana Niumeitolu:

Thurs. Sept. 19, 2013: Priming the Wall 
My Aunty Sweetie's notes in sharing what her vision of the mural is. I loved what is! She wanted to make sure that when people saw the mural, that they do not see it as a "decoration." The mural is to show that the restaurant and the mural, and why we are here is to SERVE. She wants the mural to tell our story, of who we are, where we came from and our future. She wanted to make sure that when everyone sees the mural, they see that anything is possible!!! 'Ofa lahi atu Sweety. I hope this mural captures your vision.
