The Mason Lions club met Tuesday, July 16th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 35 members and four visitors in attendance.
Lion Thom Canfield was responsible for the program and introduced Mark Brown of San Angelo, who spoke about the Lions International "Alert Program."
This is a program that helps assist after a disaster. Mark is the program coodinator for District 2-A-A, of which there are 47 clubs. Mark is working to set up a program in each club to develop a plan of action in assisting victims and first responders, and to help provide needed supplies.
Mark is working on securing some enclosed trailers that will be stocked with supplies, such as food, water, first aid supplies, personal hygiene supplies, and anything the victims or first responders might need. This is a very useful program and the Mason Lions Club helps support it with their district dues.
The club’s next meeting will be held next Tuesday, July 23rd, at noon at Willow Creek Cafe. The program chairman will be Chris Dyer, and the program will be about his trip to Moore, Oklahoma.
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.
