FROM THE EAST
Aloha Brethren, November was quite a busy
month for our lodge: First we had elections at our
stated meeting and I am very honored and proud
to have been elected as the new Worshipful
Master of the Lodge.
I extend my gratitude to all of the officers that
have been elected and appointed in their
positions, Masonry needs Men like you to keep the
Masonic traditions, friendships and brotherly love
alive, so future ages may enjoy and experience it
as well, and with that, I can assure you all that I
will do my very best…
On November 15th, Kona Lodge had another
very successful 3rd degree ceremony for our
newly raised Master Mason, Brother Sean
Stueber, from Kilauea Lodge. It is a pleasure to
host and partake in such a memorable event. I am
grateful for all who participated in putting the
courtesy degree together and to those who
participated in the degree as well.
Brethren Mark Your Calendars to attend the
2018 Kona Lodge Officer’s installation which is
scheduled for 10am, Saturday December 2nd at
Kona Lodge. Members of the Hawaii Grand Lodge
will be the installing team.
Immediately following the installation will be our
annual BBQ Potluck held at the Old Kona Airport,
Please keep in mind that the installation
ceremony is open to everyone, mason or not,
family members and friends are welcome.

I would like to recognize all of the newly elected
and appointed officers in the 2018 line of officers
