The Trestle board
"To see the light by which Masons Work"
   Aloha Brethren: October was a very busy month for our
lodge. First, I would like to congratulate our newly raised
brother, Cory Luke, on becoming an entered apprentice
mason. Your Journey has just began.
   The brethren of the High Twelve Club assisted Chef Ippy
Aiona of Ippy’s Hawaiian BBQ in a fund-raiser to promote his
new restaurant location in Waimea. The restaurant will be
open sometime in January 2019. Thank you to all who
attended. All the funds collected were donated to our Masonic
Center to keep it open.
   Most importantly and especially thank you to the officers for
all the hard work you’ve been investing into Masonry. I’m very
honored in having such a devoted line of officers. Your
perseverance has not gone unnoticed, It is Masons like you
that keep this fraternity alive and well.
   This year has literally passed before my eyes. It seems like
only yesterday I was installed as Master of Kona Lodge. It has
truly been a life changing experience. Every Mason has some
part of Masonry he takes home, takes to his work, to his
friends and to his family. I’ve been taking in all the lessons of
Masonry and applying them to my life and now when I say
“masonry makes good men better”, it truly has a different
meaning to me. That is why I’m honored in belonging to the
greatest fraternity the world has seen.
   This will be my last trestle board article as Master, and again
I cannot thank you all enough for the support, brotherly love
and friendship you all have extended to me.  I know you all
will extend the same graciousness to our SW Brother Troy
Gibson who will be taking the East for 2019, Congratulations!
   Brethren, remember that the November Stated Meeting is
elections for next year’s line of officers. Please mark your
calendar to attend.
    Fraternally Yours,
    Chris Domino
    Worshipful Master

  Aloha my brethren; what a exciting October stated meeting
we had.  There were four men interested in joining that came
to our dinner. Our Junior Warden, Joe Zapatoliva, cooked a
fantastic meal and great fellowship was had by all.
    Congratulations Brother Corey Luke on your initiation as
an Entered Apprentice Mason.  
Our first degree on the 24th was spectacular thanks to all who
made it happen, particularly Worshipful Chris Domino for
cooking and scheduling our practices.  
   It looks like the lodge is in full swing and as the saying
goes “it takes a village to raise a child”. In our world the
saying is “it takes a lodge to raise a mason”. Each and every
one of you is important to that process and I would like to
thank all of you for your contribution, dedication, guidance
and brotherhood.  
   On a personal note: November is a tricky month for me as
my wife is 9 months pregnant so if I’m not around you know
why.  Thank you again for all of your support and as always it’
s my pleasure to serve the fraternity.
    Fraternally yours,
    Troy Gibson, Sr.
    Senior Warden
