"To see the light by which Masons Work"
    Greetings from the East: "Freemasonry has no dogma or theology, It
offers no sacraments. It teaches that it is important for every man to
have a religion of his own choice and to be faithful to it in thought and
action. As a result, men of different religions meet in fellowship and
brotherhood under the fatherhood of God. I think that a good Mason is
made even more faithful to the tenets of his faith by his membership in
the Lodge."    The Reverend Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, 33*
     Congratulations to our newest EA - Eric Willis! Let us give him
good counsel and support.
Officers, we need to get ready for a 2nd degree. It is never too early to
prepare. Also a 3rd degree will be scheduled for July, so practice
please. I will give all the details at the Stated Meeting.
The dinner for the June Stated will be a 'Mexican Fiesta'. Can you
guess what that entails?
   On a final note:  I would like to express my satisfaction with the
outcome of the May 20th "work day" at Kona Lodge. Without dedicated
individuals like you, this amount of cleanup and sprucing up would not
have been possible. I feel like we accomplished a great amount of long
overdue sprucing up. What a difference a few hours makes! I believe
your efforts will instill a greater sense of pride in our brothers and will
in turn encourage greater volunteerism for future events.

    See you in Lodge,
    Bob Brogan
    Worshipful Master

Aloha Brethren, I would like to congratulate our newly obligated
entered apprentice David Eric Willis and all of our officers that put on
the degree. awesome performance!
   I would also like to thank all the brethren who participated in the
Lodge cleanup, your efforts are greatly appreciated.
   I would like extend an invitation to all of the Masonic brethren,
traveling or not, to come and join us at all our ceremonies and enjoy
the dinners, comaradery and aloha from our Kona lodge.  

    Chris Domino
    Senior Warden

   Aloha brethren, a special welcome to our new brother Eric is in
order.  Although I was unable to attend I am sure the beginning of your
journey was fulfilling and spiritually beneficial. The journey is just
beginning and I look forward to assisting him in his journey.  
   I very much appreciate our worshipful master volunteering to cook
for the June Stated. Again please make every effort to come support
your lodge. I look forward to seeing all of my brothers.  
  On a personal note my promotion process has concluded and I want
to thank all of you for your support through this lengthy process.  No
results will be given for a month, but, the process is over and I can
concentrate more on our lodge.
    Fraternally yours,
    Troy Gibson Sr.
    Junior Warden.
