|FROM THE EAST
What makes a man a Mason? I have a few thoughts on that deep,
deep subject, here they are:
What do you think makes a Mason? Think about your good traits
and how to apply and build upon them.
There will be a 3rd degree on Wednesday, July 12th. This will be to
assist Kilauea Lodge in raising one of their brothers who will be leaving
the island at the end of July. Let's assist them in this important
endeavor and show our support with a good turnout.
FROM THE WEST
I cannot believe it, July already, and it’s time for our Kona Lodge
Annual Picnic. This is a potluck event with the Lodge providing the
grilling items. We usually have a great turnout with some really good
food. Mark your calendars for July 22, 2017, and bring your friends and
I thank Worshipful Master Bob Brogan, Brothers Jimmy Lysiuk and
Brother Troy Gibson for donating and installing the new entertainment
center shown in the picture on this page. I am sure that it will add to
the whole lodge experience at Kona Lodge.
I thank those brothers who participated in the Kamehameha Day
Parade representing the Blue Lodge and Shrine. In July there will be:

Jul 12 3rd Degree for Kilauea at Kona

have a great summer.
I extend an invitation to all of the Masonic Brethren, traveling or not,
to join us at all our ceremonies and events. Come enjoy dinner,
comradery and aloha at Kona Lodge.
FROM THE SOUTH
Aloha my brethren, we have made it past our halfway point of the
year and some changes are underway. We have had some upgraded
electronic donations that I would like to thank Brother Jim and Chris for
assisting me in making happen. Both of you are truly selfless men who
I have nothing but admiration for.
I urge all Masons who haven't been to the lodge in a while to come
down and see some of the changes being made.
The next big project is the dining room floor. Brother Jerry Akers is
donating all the supplies to refinish the floor. Thank you very much my
brother, your generosity is appreciated.
I will be asking for donations to offset the cost of floor preparation,
equipment rental and for the cost of rental equipment for the
installation of our sink. We will be putting together a work crew for that
project. If you choose to donate I am asking for 10 dollars from
everybody who wants to assist in making these lodge upgrades. This
is a excellent opportunity if you cannot donate your time or labor to
support this project.
All the hard work that has been done to make our lodge what it is
will be for naught if we don't progress and maintain our lodge. We are
a progressive organization and I would like to thank all of you in
advance for your help.
I look forward to seeing you at the Stated Dinner and meeting. Do
not forget our picnic on July 22nd at the Old Kona Airport.
