FROM THE EAST
   Happy New Year Brethren, as we start the New Year I would ask that all the
brethren reflect back on 2019 and give your selves a pat on the back.  It truly
amazes me on what we can accomplish together.
Looking forward, I would like ask that we build on that Masonic Energy and
continue to raise our own bars of dedication to the craft to keep our progressive
movement forward.
    Recognitions are in order for all the brethren that made our installation a
success.  I especially congratulate our officers in their progression and offer any
assistance you may need to continue your Masonic Growth.  Take it from one who
knows the year will go by fast.  
We will start our year out fast, having the probability of doing multiple thirds
degrees right out the gate.  
    Thank you again to all of you for your friendship and brotherly love.  
In closing it is my hope to support our lodge in its growth and progression and I
thank you for allowing me to serve again from the East.
Aloha,
Troy D Gibson Sr
Master

FROM THE WEST
    Aloha Brethren, Congratulations to all the brethren who advanced to their new
positions in the officer line and especially to our new Master of the Lodge,
Worshipful Brother Troy Gibson Sr, I know the lodge will be prosperous with the
dedication that you bring to the fraternity.
Also, I would like to thank all the Hawaii Grand Lodge Officers for attending the Hilo
and Kona Lodges officer installation. It is always an honor to have you here and
share your Masonic wealth.
    Please come and join us at our January monthly Stated Meeting and Dinner, it is
our privilege in accepting all traveling brethren and their families to come and
experience our Kona Lodge Ohana (family).  
I hope all of you had a safe and blessed holiday season!

FROM THE SOUTH
    Aloha Brethren, a New Year is upon us and I take this opportunity to wish every
brother and his family a Happy and Healthy New Year.
Congratulations are in order for both Kona and Kailua lodge on their Installation of
new officers, looking forward to working with everybody this year.
    Last year my predecessor would write in his articles a little something about
Masonic history. So, in keeping this tradition I found a quote from our founding
father George Washington:
     “Nowhere does one become more convinced of the strong hold which
Freemasonry takes upon the mind and lives of those aging workers in the craft
who have attained its highest honors and of their firm belief in the power of its
teachings to purify the soul of men and raise them to a new dignity and greater
heights of spirituality and practical morality.”
    Fraternally yours,
    Bro. James Lysiuk
    Junior Warden
