Northwest Military - publishers of the Ranger and NW Airlifter newspapers - invite you and your family to two FREE military family support events featuring Polynesian shows in July sponsored by Grand Canyon University. The first event is Saturday at the Capital Christian Center in Lacey from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The second is Saturday, July 17 at the Life Point Nazareth Church in Bremerton, also from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Families will have the opportunity to watch three different 30-minute shows put on by the Asia Pacific Cultural Center. Shows will feature the UW-Tacoma students representing the Island of Samoa, Learning to Dance by Ms. Ala and Ms. Kanoelani Galiza representing the island of Hawaii and more. w

Asia Pacific Cultural Center will also be providing a Thai calligraphy and Korean paperfolding craft table for the kids between shows.

Manic Meatballs will be on site selling a Hawaiian-themed menu of delicious meatballs and refreshments. This will give families the opportunity to grab a bite to eat before settling into their lawn chairs to watch the performance. 

This will be an outdoor event so it's recommended to bring blankets, chairs, umbrellas and anything that will allow you to enjoy the Polynesian show in comfort. 

Grand Canyon University will be on site and able to answer any questions regarding their programs specialized to meet the needs of military families. 

And like all of our military support events, there will of course be a door-prize opportunity and other giveaways at both events. Plus, military community venders, that help to support these events, will be on hand to offer families helpful information on a variety of topics.

Plan to bring the whole family for a fun-filled day in the sun with Polynesian entertainment and delicious food options. 

RSVP's are required to attend so please RSVP prior to the July 10 and July 17 event. For More information and to RSVP visit
