The Mason Lions club met Tuesday, May 28th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 36 members and one visitor in attendance.
Lion Gaylon Thorn was responsible for the program and introduced Mark Leatherman of Liberty Hill who spoke about rainwater harvesting.
Mark has a business that designs and installs rainwater collection systems. He had recently installed a 10,000 gallon system for Gaylon Thorn and said a five inch rain would fill the tank.
Gaylon already has about 2,000 gallons from the rain he received recently. Mr. Leatherman said a one inch rain produces 6/10 gallon of water per square foot. The larger the collection area, the more water you harvest.
This was a very interesting and informative program.
The next Hamburger Lunch is scheduled for Friday, June 7th, on the west side of the courthouse.
The club’s next meeting will be held next Tuesday, June 4th, at noon at Willow Creek Cafe. The program will be the monthly business meeting.
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.
