The Mason Lions club met Tuesday, January 15th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 34 members and one visitor in attendance.
Lion Brent Hinckley was responsible for the program and he spoke about the happenings in the City of Mason.
Brent said the electrical system has been completely upgraded now, after several years of work, and they are now working on new street lights, with one new type LED having been installed at Comanche Creek Park. The water system is running good, with only minor computer problems now and then. The landfill and recycle center are in great shape with the recycle center accounting for 30% less garbage in the landfill.
Projects in the works are the wastewater treatment plant upgrade, city speed limits (with state highways in the negotiation stage), and air conditioning/heat in the Community Building in the next two to three years. Brent also said the city is in good shape financially.
The club’s next meeting will be held next Tuesday, January 22nd, at noon at Willow Creek Cafe. The program chairman will be Harold Hoerster.
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.
