Hilo Tribune Herald

Hilo, Hawaii (Society).—With Christian Science Society, Hilo, free of debt, the dedication of the church edifice took place on Sunday morning, January 14, 1940. A historical sketch was read as follows [in part]:

The building now dedicated was erected, completed, and fully paid for in 1923, except for the Readers' room, which was added in 1938. In 1927, a group of those attending services here met for the purpose of organization, drafted a proposed set of by-laws, and forwarded them to The Christian Science Board of Directors, together with an application for acceptance as a society and branch of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts. This application was approved, and notice thereof was received on August 11, 1927.

Christian Science Society, Hilo, thus came into existence, and has since functioned under its by-laws and in conformity with the Manual of The Mother Church by Mary Baker Eddy. The first Christian Science lecture under the auspices of this society was given by a member of The Christian Science Board of Lectureship in September, 1927. At the first annual meeting of the society, by-laws were formally adopted, and Readers and other officers elected.
