"The secret of Masonry, like the secret of life, can be known only
by those who seek it, serve it, live it. It cannot be uttered; it can only be
felt and acted. It is, in fact, an open secret, and each man knows it
according to his quest and capacity. Like all things worth knowing, no
one can know it for another and no man can know it alone." - Dr.
Joseph Fort Newton
The August Stated Meeting will be on August 2nd. The remainder
of the month of August will be dark, due to the ongoing cleanup,
renovation of the Lodge's gathering/dining room. We have lots of items
left to do, so if you can donate your labor or other resources please
give Jimmy Lysiuk or myself a call. We are ﬂexible and we would be
glad for the help. We are shooting for a Grand Re-opening of Kona
Lodge's gathering/dining room for the September Stated Meeting.
There are many people to thank for this eﬀort and I will wait until
this project is complete to name names. Just understand: 'it takes a
village' and I thank all of you for your support.
FROM THE WEST
Aloha Brethren, I congratulate our newly obligated Brother Clayton
who has been raised to the Sublime Degree of a Master Mason. This
was a combined effort to raise Brother Clayton, who is a member of
Kilauea Lodge. We have a pretty good Third Degree Team, which is
comprised of Kilauea and Kona Lodge members. Indeed it was a job
I thank all the brethren who participated in the new renovation of the
dining room floor. The lodge would not be the same without those that
keep the lodge well maintained and harmonious.
I apologize for not attending the Annual Kona Lodge Picnic as I was
off island. I hear it was a huge success.
I extend to all the Masonic Brethren, traveling or not, to attend lodge
and enjoy the Masonic Comradery and Aloha which we all enjoy when
we sit down to a meal on the level.
From the South
Aloha my brothers, summertime is in full swing and our lodge is as
busy as ever.
The floor project is completed thanks to Worshipful Bob Brogan,
Brother Jim Lysiuk, Brother Ramon Villasenor and Brother Adrian
Villasenor. Your tireless efforts are much appreciated and your
dedication to the betterment of our space.
Our Annual Kona Lodge Picnic was July 22nd; I hope everyone who
attended had a wonderful time. We were honored to have Right
Worshipful Wilson Camagan DGM attend our picnic.
We were moved by his rousing speech of his long love for Kona
Lodge (RW Wilson was initiated an EAP at the Old Kona Lodge in
Captain Cook in 1992). He promises that the outer islands will not be
left out in his upcoming year as Grand Master and will be here for our
installation in December.
The food was prepared by our very own members and Officers.
There was enough food on table so if you went home hungry it was
your own fault.
Let's keep moving forward and staying progressive and supporting
each other the best we can. Your brotherly love and friendship is truly
appreciated and I value each and every one of you.
