The Trestle board
"To see the light by which Masons Work"

                         FROM THE EAST

  Aloha Brethren, Kona Lodge is starting to get busy with first degrees.
Candidates and lodge renovations are in full swing and I could not be
more exited.
   Our February stated we had multiple guests and witnessed a closing
speech from the Washington jurisdiction and I have to say what a
privilege it was. Masonry is truly one of the experiences where the
learning is continuous and I am proud to be a part of this lodge which
is so inviting and welcoming to our visitors.
    Please mark your calendar for upcoming events listed in the
February Calendar. I encourage everyone to come down and share in
the fellowship and see what your lodge is up to.
    Brethren, please send in your dues as we, by HMC law, have to
remit our per capita tax early in the year. We still, as a lodge, must pay
for all the brethren whether they pay or not. As many of you have not
remitted your dues we will take a huge hit to our bank account. Also
you cannot sit in lodge if you do not pay your 2019 dues.
   It is my honor to serve the will and pleasure of the lodge. Your
knowledge and opinions are welcome and appreciated.

    Fraternally yours
    Troy Gibson
    Master

                           FROM THE WEST

   Aloha brethren, I am pleased to see our lodge moving in the right
direction. We have many new candidates and entered apprentices to
on our agenda.
     It’s important for the newer members to learn all of our experiences
in masonry as we are all brothers as I personally benefited from those
experiences when I first joined.
    I hope to see all of you in the lodge and enjoy each other’s company,
and am proud to call each of you my brother.
    Fraternally Yours
    Chris Domino PM
    Senior Warden

                         FROM THE SOUTH
    Theodore Roosevelt had an illustrious career including but not
limited to, Governor of New York, conservationist, writer, leader of the
First US Volunteer Calvary Regiment (commonly known as the Rough
Riders), Vice President Of The United States, President of the United
States and Nobel Peace Prize recipient in 1906 for his efforts in
brokering  an end to the Russo-Japanese War.
     Vice President Theodore Roosevelt became President in 1901, after
President McKinley was assassinated. That same year Theodore
Roosevelt became a member of Matnecock Lodge No. 806 in Oyster
Bay New York. Brother Roosevelt had many recorded quotes, but I'll
speak to two;
    •        "In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the
    right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst
    thing you can do is nothing."
    •        "When you are asked if you can do a job, tell 'em 'certainly I
    can!' then get busy and find out how to do it."

    I would ask that you re-read the quotes above and see if you can
give a little of your time to spruce up OUR Lodge. Your efforts will be
greatly appreciated!
                     See you in Lodge,
                     Bob Brogan PM
                     Junior Warden
