On Monday, May 12th, HiTel FCU had announced their Bishop Branch relocation on the 11th floor of the Hawaiian Telephone Company Building. Employees who came to visit the newly opened branch received a special treat – pop-a-licious popcorn! There was a popcorn bar set up, and there were toppings galore from Arare Mochi Crunch and Fruikake to Raisinets and Gummy Bears. Everyone had a blast adding goodies to their popcorn. In addition, members who made any transaction at the teller window received a leather key chain in appreciation of their membership. The branch is strictly for Hawaiian Tel employees as the credit union can serve all their money needs at a convenient location. However, in just a few weeks, the Downtown Walmart Branch will soon be opening on Fort Street to service the public.
The famous Harlem Globetrotters entertained people of all ages at the Neal Blaisdell Center on Saturday, April 26th. It was a day full of pre-game festivities followed by a delightful exhibition game. When the doors first opened, HiTel FCU had a table set up for a drawing to win two side line tickets, and the lucky winners were announced just minutes before the game.
Both our athletic mascots took the court as they were announced as “Honorary Globetrotters Team Captains!” Yoko and Kalea received a certificate of appreciation and had a paparazzi photo shoot with some key members including players, coaches, and their mascot Globbie.
