Ho`okumu Hou! (A New Beginning)
Oceanic Time Warner Cable’s Grand Opening
Oceanic Time Warner Cable celebrated the official opening of their new office spaces in the Ward district of Honolulu on May 30th, 2013 with a special Hawaiian blessing performed by Kahu Silva. The program of events began with greetings of “aloha” and welcoming remarks by Oceanic’s Vice President of Operations, Norman Santos. Highlighting the ceremonial blessing was the traditional unraveling of sacred maile lei vines symbolically signifying the start of “A New Beginning” for Oceanic’s employees and the services they provide to subscribers and other valued customers. Following the blessing, everyone in attendance was invited to a personal tour of the new facilities and to enjoy a customary Hawaiian pa’ina (luncheon) feast. The festivities culminated with a gracious sharing of genuine Hawaiian hospitality and concluded with honored guests receiving a ho`okupu (token gift offering) as a little memento for their participation in this memorable occasion.
