The Mason Lions club met Tuesday, April 9th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 35 members and one visitor in attendance.
Lion John Palacio was responsible for the program and spoke about happenings at the City of Mason, mainly the wastewater treatment plant.
John said the City had gotten the "go ahead" to get bids on the reconstruction of the wastewater holding ponds at the landfill. He said that they are presently twice the size they need to be to work efficiently.
The new ponds will be built so that they will be gravity-flow which will conserve electricity that was used to pump the water from one pond to another. The water that results from the final pond will be useable to irrigate the coastal field at the landfill; or, could be used to water the golf course. John said it would theoretically be suitable to drink!
The Hamburger Lunch held on April 5th made over $1,100 for the Club. These proceeds will be used in the community for various needs. The Lions Club would like to thank everyone who helped with this project by donations or by purchase of the hamburgers, or both.
The club’s next meeting will be held next Tuesday, April 16th, at noon at Willow Creek Cafe. The program chairman will be Charles Reichenau.
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.
