No`ono`o pono: To Think Righteously

Value of the Month – December

Starting from back: Joe Davis, General Manager; Jennifer Nakayama, Director of Operations; and Sean Coffey, Director of Event Management serve up some delicious desserts to the HCC `Ohana during the Holiday Luncheon.

As we continue to live by our ho`okipa values each month, we reflect on the value of No`ono`o pono in the month of December.  No`ono`o means “a thought, to think, reflect” and pono is “goodness, uprightness, righteousness, or to be just.”  This value reminds us each day “to think righteously.”  This means counting our blessings every day, having an attitude of gratitude, thinking the best of each person, including ourselves; focusing on what’s going right, recognizing people’s strengths, being the solution, and encouraging and serving others with a heart that’s pono…because it’s the right thing to do.

As we reflect on the past year, we have so much to be grateful for and wish to extend our warmest Mahalo to our clients, guests, visitors, partners, neighbors, community, peers, family and friends for making 2011 a very memorable year for all of us here at the Hawai`i Convention Center.  We welcomed many national, international and local events to the Center and are optimistic that 2012 will be an even greater year!

HCC staff enjoyed the delicious bento lunch and the fun program that followed.

A hui hou (until we meet again), malama pono (take good care).

With warmest Aloha and Holiday Greetings from our HCC `Ohana (family) to yours!

Mele Kalikimaka me ka Hau`oli Makahiki Hou!
