LAHAINA – LahainaTown Action Committee hosted its annual meeting on Monday, Jan. 22, at the Pioneer Inn Courtyard in Lahaina.

LAC Board President Snehal Patel presented the awards for the 2017 LahainaTown Action Committee Business of the Year and Volunteer of the Year to Robin Vega and MegaVega Properties.

“Not only did MegaVega Properties support the efforts of LahainaTown Action Committee’s events and initiatives, Robin Vega personally gives her time volunteering at every Second Friday event, the Lahaina Golf Classic, Fourth of July in Lahaina, Halloween in Lahaina and the Lahaina holiday events,” said Patel.

“Robin and her company are instrumental to the success of our organization, and on behalf of the board of directors, we are very grateful. This is a long overdue recognition of Robin and MegaVega Properties.”

The meeting also included a keynote address, “Success with Aloha,” by Julie Yoneyama, the director of leisure sales for Maui Visitors and Convention Bureau, and a board election.

Board Members Jack Starr, general manager of Kimo’s; Tambara Garrick, regional sales manager of Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.; Mousa Hassan, owner of Paradise Lahaina; and State Rep. Angus McKelvey were all on the ballot for re-election to a new three-year term and approved by the LAC membership. Sean Corpuel, who previously served on the board of directors from 2012-15, was also re-elected to the board for the upcoming term.

Katarina Tualemoso, interim executive director of LahainaTown Action Committee, presented the 2018 Calendar of Events, and the meeting ended with networking, including music by Michael Guzalak on saxophone and complimentary pupus donated by Beach Bum’s Napili, Kimo’s, Pioneer Inn, Cool Cats, Captain Jack’s, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Longhi’s Lahaina and Koa’s.
