The Community Bulletin Board

 

 

This Bulletin Board is for posting messages of interest to the global Rotuman community. It is an appropriate place to ask questions, to make announcements regarding events, to share information and opinions, and to find lost kainaga, friends, schoolmates, etc. To post an item on the bulletin board send your message via email to the webmaster <ahoward@hawaii.edu> We request that messages conform to the rules of Rotuman etiquette (fak gagaja) and show courtesy toward, and respect for, others. As a rule, messages will only be posted when individuals identify themselves by name. Messages will be left on the Board until space limitations require their removal.
