The Mason Lions club met Tuesday, August 13th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 36 members and two visitors in attendance.
Lion Elliott Courtright was responsible for the program and he spoke about the finer points of Creole versus Cajun cooking.
He said Creole cooking is French cooking that has a heavy cream sauce and is popular in New Orleans, while Cajun cooking is popular around Baton Rouge and has a simple light sauce. Elliott told us about the origin of several foods and how they got their names.
This was a very interesting program and Elliott promised to continue at his next program.
The club’s next meeting will be held next Tuesday, August 20th, at noon at Willow Creek Cafe. The program chairman will be Mark Hurta and the program will be about his life as a photographer on a cruise ship.
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.
