(Thursday, January 11, 2018) — The Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) invites Guam’s media to join them for an exciting Håfa Adai Pledge Ceremony on Friday, Jan. 12 at 2:00 p.m. at the GVB office in Tumon to welcome the United States Coast Guard as its newest member. U.S. Coast Guard Commanding Officer William C. Adams will take the pledge on behalf of USCGC Sequoia (WLB-215) and the fine men and women who serve and protect the "Crossroads of the Pacific" -- Guam, the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, The Republic of Palau, and the Federated States of Micronesia (Kosrae, Pohnpei, Chuuk, and Yap). In addition to working closely with its sister village of Malesso, the U.S. Coast Guard will share how they will be learning more about Guam's unique culture and incorporating it into their operations.

The Håfa Adai Pledge (HAP) program is a cornerstone of the Guam Visitors Bureau’s local community branding campaign. The HAP program has grown steadily both in numbers of participants as well as the content of individual pledges since its inception in 2009. More than 700 private businesses, government agencies, non-profits, organizations and Guam’s children have joined the Håfa Adai Pledge program.
