Mona Bio (right) gives fellow Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa retiree Angie Vasquez a good look to remember her face while reuniting during Thursday evening’s Maui Hotel & Lodging Association Na Kupuna Dinner at the Velma McWayne Santos Community Center in Wailuku. Looking on is current Hyatt Regency employee Veronica Domingo, who was part of the small army of workers from 13 Maui properties who provided, prepared and served the event’s holiday meals. Kathy Collins kept things rolling as emcee and storyteller for the 450 to 500 seniors gathered, while entertainment was provided by Old Lahaina Luau. Retiring Maui County Council Member Bob Carroll performed the blessing.
