The Mason Lions club met Tuesday, February 12th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 36 members and three visitors in attendance.
Lion Joel Kuykendall was responsible for the program and introduced Brandon Vinyard who spoke about the Nimitz Museum and the National Museum of the Pacific War.
These are museums dedicated to inspiring our youth by honoring our heroes. There are many interesting exhibits along with a lot of very good information about the war in the Pacific, as well as what all led up to the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
School groups may tour the museum free of charge and lesson plans are available for teachers online at pacificwarmuseum.org . The program was very informative and interesting.
The club’s next meeting will be held next Tuesday, February 19th, at noon at Willow Creek Cafe. The program chairman will be Melvin McCallum.
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.
