SHARE Territory’s 100th birthday observed

PAGO PAGO, American Samoa — This year the government of American Samoa celebrated the island's 100th birthday since becoming a territory of the United States. Single adults from four stakes in the area participated in the Flag Day celebration by giving service. After the celebration, the single adults cleaned up — as they have done during the past three years after the Flag Day celebration. The governor publicly expressed appreciation for the service.

Other projects included cleaning of the government building and planting of trees, cleaning and painting schools, and donating linens to the local hospital.
