The Mason Lions club met Tuesday, February 19th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 34 members and two visitors in attendance.
Lion Melvin McCallum was responsible for the program and he spoke about his experiences as a "water witcher."
Melvin has the talent, or "gift," of being able to locate underground water where a well needs to be drilled. He said he has been doing this for several years and only started charging for his services after gasoline prices began to soar a few years ago. He said he has been called to find water in several counties in central Texas and he has a 100% success rate at finding water, though the drillers sometimes miss the vein of water.
The program was very interesting and educational.
The club’s next meeting will be held next Tuesday, February 26th, at noon at Willow Creek Cafe. The program chairman will be Richard Taylor, and the program will be about solar energy.
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.
