North Bank Lodge #182 had the privilege of a surprise unofficial visit by the MWGM Jim Mendoza at our March 21, 2017 Stated Meeting!

His presence and his exuberance for the craft was obvious in his message about Legislative involvement and in his Closing of the lodge in Ample form.

Sitting in the West as I was I observed MWGM Mendoza and WM James Beebe chuckling to each other as it appeared he was looking at WM Beebe's agenda.

We know how dedicated WM Beebe is on his agenda. Anticipating that the MWGM would possibly attend at anytime he had the introduction and everything he needed from the Lodge Officers Handbook. WM Beebe was prepared for him.

Our Line of officers performance of Ritual was superb drawing praise from the MWGM. I was caught by surprise in the West when he asked me if "there were any wages to be paid"...pondering I said "MWGM wages to all the Brothers who attended Lodge tonight".

Eric Erickson as JW assured MWGM Mendoza there were refreshments ready to go.

This unique experience was felt by all.
