             FROM THE EAST
    Aloha Brethren, February was quite a busy month for Kona
lodge. Over 30 brethren and their families were in attendance
for our February Stated Meeting. We had a full house and what
a very pleasant time was had by all. We always encourage
traveling brethren to join us at all our Masonic functions.
    I would like to congratulate our newly-raised Master Mason
Brother Michael Olson who also gave his second degree
proficiency at the February Stated Meeting. Your motivation
will take you far in your Masonic travels.
    Thank you Brother Troy Gibson for sitting in the east for
the 3rd degree. To all the officers in attendance, your support,
team work, and dedication, is what makes our lodge the
greatest fraternity to be a member of.
    Masonry is just not only a fraternity, it is a way of life for
some of us. It is a vehicle to step out of your normal everyday
routine and come together and learn what our forefathers in
Freemasonry believed in and stood for:
    •        Brotherly Love
    •        Friendship and truth
    As Masons we apply our teachings to our daily routines
and spread it in ways that most might not understand, but we
as Masons, should always remember to share the light.
    I will be traveling for most of the month of March, please do
not let my absence disrupt any important tidings the lodge
may have.
Thank you all!
    Fraternally,
    Chris Domino
    Worshipful Master

FROM THE WEST
    Congratulations are in order for our newest Master Mason,
Brother Michael Olson. My Brother your journey has just
begun. I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say it was a
pleasure taking part in your journey thus far and Kona Lodge
welcomes you to the family. Brethren, thank you for
participating in Brother Olsen’s journey. This is truly what
being a brother is about.  
    Moving forward, we will continue to move the lodge in a
positive direction and I foresee more degrees on the horizon.  I
invite any Brother that have not been to lodge in a while to
come down and share some fellowship and see the changes
that are being made.  We are scheduling a “spring
cleaning/fellowship day”, I will be contacting brothers directly.
   As always it is my pleasure to serve the will and pleasure of
the brethren and I appreciate all of your support.
    Fraternally,
    Troy Gibson
    Senior Warden

FROM THE SOUTH
    Brethren, the year is just starting, Brethren join me in
welcoming Brother Michael Olson to Kona lodge. I am pleased
with the progress he has shown in such a short period of
time.  
    Not knowing what the future holds for us, I know that the
brethren of Kona Lodge will hold the Masonic Ornaments of
Brother Love, Relief and Truth as a foundation to build on.
    For the month of March I will be preparing Chicken
Cacciatore over White Jasmine Rice. You ask about dessert?
Yes, of course we will have dessert.
     My plans for this year are to make every dinner a
memorable one.
    See you at dinner!
