Wor. Cordero with newly raised Bro. Galendez

Still getting ready... With great brotherhood and great food like this nobody wants to stop eating.

Worshipful Clint Black, PM,  Brother Steve Laurvick, SW, Brother Dennis Stahr, JW, and Brother Robert Salini, JS had the pleasure and honor to visit Southwest Lodge #283 in National City, on Thursday night May 20, 2010.

Thanks to Wor. Oscar R. Cordero, Master
Southwest Lodge #283, a gracious host.









The Brothers gave us a great welcome, and a handsome bunch they are.



























































One last spoonful and it is time to get into the Lodge room.



















And even better feasting after the raising.










Time to say goodnight and get home now.
