The Mason Lions club met Tuesday, December 18th, for its annual Christmas luncheon. There were 37 members and 30 visitors in attendance.
Lion Kendal Hemphill was responsible for the program and introduced John Jefferson, outdoor writer and ex lawyer, who spoke about some of his experiences while he was the Assistant District Attorney in Alice, Texas, Duval County, during the George Parr era.
He had several interesting stories to tell and said he would not take a million dollars for his time there; but, would not do it again for five million!
The club’s next meeting will be held Tuesday, January 8th, at noon at Willow Creek Cafe. The program chairman will be the monthly business meeting.
The Mason Lion’s Club has an ongoing program to recycle used eyeglasses to people who need them. Used eyeglasses may be given to any Lion or left in collection boxes at any of the local banks. Also please contact any Mason Lion if you know of anyone in our community unable to afford appropriate eye care.
