The Mason Lions club met Tuesday, January 28th, for its regular weekly meeting. There were 37 members and four visitors in attendance. Among the visitors were two Mason High School seniors, Drigo Martinez and Leret Hemphill.
Lion Mike Murphy was responsible for the program and introduced Cliff Krcha who spoke about his time in the U.S. Navy.
In 1976, Cliff was aboard the USS Voge-FF1047 when it was hit by a Soviet submarine trying to cuth the cable that was towing a sonar device used for locating submarines. Cliff's story was very interesting, and exciting, to say the least.
The club’s next meeting will be held next Tuesday, February 4th, at noon at Willow Creek Cafe. The program will be the 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.
