      Already September, the traditional start of the public school year, my
goodness how time flies! Of course it seems that nothing is as it was, anymore, as
a lot of schools are now starting in August. What happened to having 3 months off
for the summer? I guess it's the “new normal”.
      Back to the subject: During the 2018/2019 school year, Kona Lodge donated
some much appreciated supplies to a worthy class. But we didn't donate those
supplies until well into 2019. We can view the timing of this donation in one of two
ways: (1) we made the donation toward the end of the school year when, maybe
just maybe, the class was low on supplies, or (2) we could maybe make a donation
to a worthy class earlier, so the class might better use the resources we provide
them. Remember, these supplies were donated by Kona Lodge's individual
members generosities, no Lodge funds were solicited. I will be bringing this
matter to your attention at the Stated Meeting, so please have a think about it.
      Another thought about supporting education: I've seen articles in the local
paper concerning back-pack giveaways done by different organizations. Is that
something that interests anyone, and can we support something like that in the
future? I would love to talk to you about educational support, so please come see

between it and the cultivation of virtue, and furnishes the most powerful
incentives to goodness."     Joseph Fort Newton
