Most Worshipful Wilson Camagan on your Election as Grand
Master for 2018. I truly feel honored to be a Mason when I get a
chance to attend such an event, with all the visiting brethren
from our neighboring island and the mainland, and the
international traveling brethren from Japan and the
Philippines. There was an historic and notable event to be
present at. The signing of a treaty between the Grand Lodge of
Hawaii F.&A.M. and the Price Hall Grand Lodge of Hawaii, Inc
to come together and share mutual recognition jurisdiction in
“WE ARE ALL BROTHERS OF THE APRON”
Thank you all for your dedication and fellowship.

Aloha my brethren, we had an exciting and busy month of
fellowship and civility.
As we move forward in the year I would urge any and all
the brethren to think about how they can enrich their Masonic
experience. This can be done in a number of ways and each
brother has his own journey.
As always I appreciate all the help from the brethren and
look forward to broadening my Masonic horizons.
The Annual Communication was an enriching experience
and it was my pleasure to represent such a fine group of men.
As always thank you for the opportunity to serve the will and
pleasure of the brethren.
