New Lodge Chief and a cheerful send-off for a family that embodies service

With heavy hearts and firm handshakes, we bid farewell to Seth, Kena, Mike and Polly Reid. They’ve served our lodge tirelessly for years, keeping Hukilau Chapter strong as well as supporting lodge-level ceremonies and events, as well as running a hugely successful trading post at lodge and council functions.

With Seth’s departure, we asked for lodge officers and chapter chiefs interested in serving as interim Lodge Chief to announce their candidacy. Devin Hartzell from Kapiolani and Reagen Meador from Koolau both put their names in the hat, and in a vote last Wednesday, Devin Hartzell was selected to serve as our new Na Mokupuni O Lawelawe Lodge Chief.
