Guam - More and more businesses are joining the Guam Visitors Bureau's "Hafa Adai Pledge".  Seven more companies joined dozens of others that have already committed to the pledge.  During today's Guam Hotel and Restaurant Association meeting, GVB acting general manager Ernie Galito stressed the importance of everyone on the island getting on board.

"We feel that because visitors go out to other areas than hotels or restaurants, they may go into different areas like Kmart or McDonald's or places like that and we want to make sure they receive the same hospitality that they receive in hotels," Galito stated.  

Galito says the pledge includes a Hafa Adai Dress Day, playing Chamorro music and regularly using Chamorro words and phrases.
