Tasi met with members of the Board of Directors of the Spirit Mountain Community Fund from the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde on Wedenesday, March 15, to accept a $4,000 grant to enhance the Paradise of Samoa to accept more dancers and bring more Polynesian Dance to the Northwest. The grant will help with a trailer to transport equipment, and many other elements of the project "O le Ala I Le Lumana'i" or "the Way of the Future", a celebration of the power of youth, diversity and the arts.

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS TO COME TO OUR 10TH ANNUAL LUAU AND CELEBRATE OUR DANCERS !!!!!
People in the community ask how can Paradise of Samoa keep running and viable when there is no tuition, fees, or costume expenses for participants. First, it is the parents and families of the dancers and their commitment, secondly, it is the dedication of the dancers themselves, and thirdly, it is financially up to our sponsors, customers, grantors, and the LUAU, which is our major fundraiser of the year.
Come on September 2nd, 2017 at 4:30 and become a part of this joy ......the Paradise of Samoa.....
