The Mason Lions club met Tuesday, October 29th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. Among the visitors were two Mason High School seniors, Carley Chew and Mackenzey Sloan.
Lion Jim Heidelberg was responsible for the program and introduced Judge Rob Hofmann who spoke about his role as District Judge for the newly created 452nd Judicial District which encompasses Mason, Menard, McCulloch, Kimble and Edwards counties.
He explained the legislative process that created the new district and the demographics of the five counties. The goal of the new district is to improve the efficiency of the legislative process in keeping with the theme, "Justice delayed is justice denied," which dates back to the Magna Carta.
He also spoke about the CASA program in general and our local Bluebonnet CASA organization that operates in Mason, Menard, McCulloch and Kimble counties.
The club’s next meeting will be held next Tuesday, November 5th, at noon at Willow Creek Cafe. This will be our regular monthly business meeting.
The Mason Lion’s Club promotes sight conservation in our community. Anyone who has used eyeglasses to donate may give them to a Lions Club member or put them in collection boxes at the local banks. Also, if anyone needs financial assistance with eyeglasses, please speak to a local Lions Club member.
