Worshipfuls, Betty and Lee at our October
Stated Meeting
The Trestle board
"To see the light by which Masons Work"
    Aloha my brethren, I hope this email finds you and your family well.  Another
quarantine month has passed and our lodge is quiet.  While I’m sure all of you are
missing the fellowship and brotherhood of getting together we have to adapt and
adjust.  Having said that it was discussed at our stated meeting about having weekly
or bi-weekly informal zoom meetings where we can get together and socially visit.  
Getting together on zoom is not as good as in person, but at this time it may be the
best option we have.  
    Our fraternity prides itself on being progressive and in that spirit we need to at
least have a discussion on plans to move forward.  I will be setting up an informal
zoom meeting where we can get together and brainstorm as a group.  These are
uncharted waters and I am confident we will navigate the storm and come out the
other side stronger and better.  
    If anyone is in need of assistance, please reach out to us.  We are here to help
each other and support each other the best we can.  As a suggestion - use this time
to exercise your Masonic research curiosities and share some thoughts and
perspectives with each other.
All of you are in my thoughts and I look forward to visiting with all of you as soon as
possible, whether it is in person or virtually.  Stay safe and be well my brethren.
    Fraternally yours,
    Troy D. Gibson Sr, PM

    Aloha Brethren, first, I hope all brethren and families are doing well in this
pandemic. It has hit us all in different ways from unemployment to just trying to
enjoy seeing loved ones so please let’s be role models and do as much as we can
to stop the spread of this virus. My condolences to the Veterans care home in Hilo
and to any brethren who may have lost someone.
    Not much has changed in the rules as we all know as to specific lodge business
as far as upcoming events and meetings, just pay attention to email and dates as we
are conducting stated meetings with Zoom.
     I want to encourage all brethren to take the time and attend and also please join
us in our non-tiled meetings arranged by Worshipful Gibson. These zoom meetings
are just to touch base, see each other and express any concerns or consider it a
“talk story” session. Please check your email for the zoom invitations or contact one
of the officers for confirmation.
    I do believe this is vital to our fraternity as we are driven on brotherly love relief
and truth so again, please attend and tell jokes if you want, it’s really great and
needed comradery.  
There is a portion of the Letter G that I believe not only in this pandemic but what
our great nation is going through and how I see us brethren, and what we will
endure by our beliefs and what we took our obligation to:
    “The lapse of time, the ruthless hand of ignorance and the devastation of war
have laid waste and destroyed many valuable monuments of antiquity on which the
utmost exertions of human genius were employed. Even the Temple of Solomon, so
spacious and magnificent, and constructed by so many celebrated artists, escaped
not the unsparing ravages of barbarous force. Freemasonry, notwithstanding has
still survived!”
    Brethren please stay healthy!
    Fraternally Yours,
    Chris Domino PM
    Senior Warden


Aloha Brothers, Well good news everyone! Pumpkin spice is back at Starbucks,
which means September has come and gone and we are now entering October.
I hope everyone and their families are safe and healthy. Construction is slowing at
the lodge, but it's not stopping because our association to which we belong has
awarded us the renovation of the men’s and women’s bathrooms so no more cracks
in floors and smelly bathrooms. Stay tuned for more pictures and information about
the progress.
    I would like to leave you with a quote from Brother Albert Pike: “What we have
done for ourselves alone, dies with us. What we have done for others and the world,
remains and is immortal” -
Brother Albert Pike
    Fraternally Yours
    Brother James Lysiuk
