Some of the villagers who arrived before the closing ceremony began in Nukuhetulu.

This is a close up view of the beautiful Tapa cloth that is hand painted.  It was used under the canopy where we were seated.

All of the men who spoke at the ceremony gathered around when they started up the new engine.

The Town Officer is a sweet man.  His mother died this week and he is dressed in the Tongan mat and black that is worn here when people are in morning.
