Beautify CNMI exported to the rest of Micronesia

I just attended the 9th MIC Retreat in Majuro. As part of the CNMI State Report at the beginning of the retreat, I reintroduced the attendees to Beautify CNMI! I shared some of successes and our not-so-successes. I also passed out some bumper stickers and some of our brand new turtle bags.

Talk about product placement!
