The Guam Society announces it’s 2016 Chamorro Night Event.  An event that celebrates our culture and promotes our people and our beautiful island of Guam.

***IMPORTANT – PLEASE FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS FOR RSVP AND INFORMATION REQUIRED***

You can also leave a message and ensure your name and numbers are stated clearly.  Please email or text your full name and DOB to ensure we do not misspell names as it may cause issues at the security gate for entry into the Fort Meade Military Installation.  Email address to use is boduenas@verizon.net
