MBP agrees to host Christmas-themed event

Christmas in the Marianas is limiting itself to 18 competitors. Children from other schools were directed to delay their tree decorating skills until next year. But, since learning delayed may actually be learning denied, the Marianas Business Plaza offers its itself to as many schools as possible as a venue to help children learn tree decoration, caroling, and Yule-time costume making. This is a time to be joyous. Come to an organizational meeting on Monday, Nov. 4, 4pm, at the Marianas Business Plaza (former Nauru building). Contact Levi, John or Mary at 234-6647 or 789-7614.
