"To see the light by which Masons Work"
FROM THE EAST
   What is a Mason? He is faithful to his family. He is faithful to his
friends. He is faithful to his country. He is faithful to Masonry, and
therefore the best interests of mankind. A Freemason strives for
knowledge and to obtain the truth. A Freemason knows that
knowledge is the most genuine and real of human treasures and wants
to share it with others. A Freemason therefore should be a man of
honor, principals, and conscience devoted to learning and sharing. We
as Mason's need to do more to be seen as the positive role models we
are supposed to be. We should wear our Masonry as a proud badge of
honor, because each one of us has every right to be proud of our
fraternity. This fraternity has withstood the test of time. Masonry
should be action, not inaction. It should be work, not inactivity. A
Masonic Lodge should resemble a beehive, with members actively
involved in many activities. Community events, clean-up days,
scholarships, help for shut-ins, and the list goes on only limited by our
imagination. It is worse by far to know and not to do, than never to
have known at all. Remember that life is not measured by its hours,
days, or years, but by that which we have done for our fellow mankind.

    See you in Lodge

FROM THE WEST
Aloha Brethren, first I congratulate our newly raised Master Mason
Brother Jeffery Cabanting-Rafael. It is an honor for our Kona Lodge to
put on a degree for our Kilauea brethren.
I extend to all of the Masonic brethren, traveling or not, to come and
join us at all our ceremonies and enjoy the dinners, aloha and a family
welcome from our Kona lodge.  

“A Mason is not necessarily a member of a lodge. In a broad sense, he
is any person who daily tries to live the Masonic life, and to serve
intelligently the needs of the Great Architect.”

Fraternally Yours,
Chris Domino
Senior Warden


FROM THE SOUTH
   Aloha brethren, I can't believe it is already March.  We have had a
busy and exciting start of the year.  
   The West Hawaii High 12 Club is up and running. We have had three
initial meetings. It would seem that the wheels of West Hawaii High
Twelve are turning.
   There is much work needed to get ready for advanced stations, time
is short, and it will be proficiency time sooner than you will think. I urge
all officers to work diligently toward their goal.  
I thank all of Kona Lodge for their continued support, patience and
guidance.
   Thank you, WB Chuck Sunberg PM for always being there to fill in
for me when I cannot attend.  I truly appreciate this, my brother.
I thank all who participated and attended our February 24th courtesy
degree for Brother Jeffery Cabanting-Rafael of Kilauea lodge.
   I need a cook for the March Stated as I will be taking a promotional
test that day so any interested brother please call me 640-1149.  
   I am always amazed at what this group of men can accomplish as a
group it is a true testament to brotherhood.
   In closing we will be having a first degree upcoming which we
haven't had in a while and I urge all Kona Lodge Masons to attend this
momentous day and look forward to seeing you there.

    Fraternally yours,
    Troy Gibson
    Junior Warden
