Inscription.  
A Portuguese-American fraternal benefit society receiving members of all nationalities established in the State of California in 1889 to assist widows and orphans. This local chapter, Council #14, was organized on April 23, 1898, by its founder and first president, J.D. Oliveira, a native of Pico, Azores, a Hayward resident and proprietor of the Farmer's Saloon on "B" Street from the 1890's until Prohibition. J.S. Oliveira donated this property to I.D.E.S. for the purchase price of a ten dollars gold piece. Decendants of J.D. Oliveira remain active in the community and this council today.

Maintaining another purpose for its founder, the traditional festival in honor of the Holy Spirit is sponsored annually at this locality.

Also see . . .  Cult of the Holy Spirit - Wikipedia. Worship of the Holy Spirit was promoted by Joachim of Fiore, a millenarian prophet who, on the basis on his interpretation of the Book of Revelation, postulated that 1260 would see the beginning of a third age. (He himself died in 1202.) The third age would be governed by the Holy Spirit and would represent a monastic governance, in which the hierarchy of the Church would be unnecessary and infidels would unite with Christians.
