Mason County 4-H was represented at the 2016 Texas 4-H Roundup contest called “Share the Fun.” Kendra Klaerner, 4-H member and Junior from Mason ISD performed on Thursday, June 9 at the Rudder Complex on the campus of Texas A&M University. Kendra competed in the Musical/Instrumental category playing the piano piece “Waterfall” by Jon Schmidt.
The Texas 4-H Roundup is a qualifying and invitational event for 4-H youth who placed in a district level roundup or signed up to compete in one of the invitational events. The Texas 4-H Roundup has around 50 diverse competitions that tie in with the many projects that 4-H has to offer.
Congratulations to Kendra on her preparation and performance at 4-H Round Up and for her representation of Mason County.
I want to extend my warmest appreciation to those who have assisted me with two very large projects over the last six months. The first project involved a health fair at our local food pantry to provide an opportunity for the participants to learn of services available to them at no cost or low cost. We also provided smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors for those who had neither. There were a number of vendors from around the Hill Country who participated, along with the Greater Works Community Development committee, which was eager to offer their building and assistance in hosting the health fair. In the end, we scheduled 12 women for free mammograms, provided blood pressure, blood glucose and hemoglobin A1C screenings from local agencies and Hill Country Memorial. Additionally, The Lions Club was able to administer information on eye glasses to those who needed to be connected.
The City of Mason voted a month ago to not pursue creating their own police department; but, that left a number of questions as to what the agreement between the City and County would be for future law enforcement support.
The members of the Fort Mason American Legion Post 285 and Ladies Auxiliary opened their meeting with the pledge of allegiance and a prayer. The pledge was led by Commander Lawrence Spell and a prayer was offered by Finance Officer Bruce Fowler.
