The Mason Study Club participated in Mason’s Old Yeller Days on Saturday, September 28th, by having an activity booth for the children named “Painted Rocks Rock”. Questions asked were, “What does this cost? What is it? What do we do? Do we have to?”
This booth was exactly what it said - paint a rock! The children were able to choose their rock and then get as creative as they wanted. Some of the children painted their rocks to look like a bulls-eye. Maybe to get ready for deer season? Others were painted in stripes, polka dots to look like lady bugs, and others were multi colored.
Some children painted one rock. Others didn’t stop with one, but instead painted two or even three rocks. It was fun for the workers to see the enthusiasm of the children, smiles on their faces, and bright eyes at their completed projects. After the rocks dried, the children were able to take them home as Old Yeller Days souvenirs.
A big thank you goes to the many people who helped in this event. Not just the Mason Study Club members, but the many people behind the scenes who helped with set-up, clean-up, advertising, committees, churches, other groups, the re-enactors, the City, the newspaper. If you helped, sponsored, participated, etc, thank you.
