We have all heard of the devastation in Maui from the massive fires that are ongoing.
Dustin Verity, Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Hawaii F.&A.M. has stated:
“Last night, our beloved island of Maui was touched by the destructive force of fires that swept through our community, leaving devastation in their wake. It is with a profound sense of sadness that I reach out to each of you today.
During these challenging times, let us come together as a united and resilient Masonic family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the individuals and families affected by this tragedy. We stand in solidarity with our Brothers and their loved ones who may be grappling with loss, displacement, or uncertainty. In the true spirit of Freemasonry, let us extend our hands and hearts to offer our support wherever it is needed.
While material possessions can be rebuilt, the emotional wounds caused by such events can linger. Let us be beacons of light for our community, providing comfort, compassion, and assistance as we can.”
The Grand Commander has designated that the offering taken up at the Sunday, August 20, 2023, church service at our Biennial Session will be designated for Hawaii disaster relief.
