The Mason Study Club held a short meeting on Tuesday, March 12th. Two items of business were discussed. The first item regarded the upcoming Ham sale, with the order deadline being Saturday, March 16th, and the delivery date being Saturday, March 23rd. The second order of business concerned the proposed slate of officers for the 2013-2014 year.
The nominees recommended by the nominating committee were unanimously approved. Officers elect for 2013-2014 are: Judy Branch, President, Carol Holmes, Vice-President, Pam Scott, Secretary, and Susan Chadwick, Treasurer. Barbara Brunken will serve as Historian, Diane Evans as Parliamentarian, and Karen Olson will remain as Reporter.
After the brief meeting the Study Club, in furtherance of the Club’s mission of providing service to our community, prepared and served lunch for the Habitat for Humanity “Care-A-Vanners” at the First United Methodist Church. During the lunch many of these wonderful volunteers shared their experiences as “Care-A-Vanners,” including how many years they have been coming here, where they had been before and where they go after leaving Mason. One common theme was how much they love coming to Mason and how much they look forward to returning.
The attached photos include Joe Gano, from Naperville, Illinois, who is caulking windows on this his third tour to Mason. Another is of Frances Harless, from Lake Charles, Louisiana, who is working on a fuse box. This is Frances’s sixth trip to Mason. Bill Shroeder, from Hamilton, Ohio, who is shown installing can lighting in the home’s hallway, is here for the third time.
It was a privilege for the Study Club to host these wonderful “Care-A-Vanners.” Theirs and the many local volunteers who so generously give of their time and resources are what make Habitat For Humanity such an overwhelming success here in Mason.
