The Mason Lions club met Tuesday, March 25th, for its regular weekly meeting. There were 35 members and one visitor in attendance.
Lion Dane Phillips was responsible for the program and introduced Sergeant Sammy Zapata who spoke about law enforcement in Mason County. Sgt. Zapata said currently there had been some phone scams being directed at the elderly, and some copper thefts being reported. He also said that Mason was not immune to drug abuse, with the main problem drug being methamphetamine. This drug causes extreme addiction after only one use.
Sgt. Zapata also said there had been some thefts of guns and vehicle break ins in the western part of Llano County bordering Mason County. He wanted everyone to be careful about leaving valuables in unlocked vehicles and houses, and to report any suspicious activity to the Sheriff's Department. There were a lot of questions and answers afterward.
The club’s next meeting will be held next Tuesday, April 1st, at noon at Willow Creek Cafe. The program will be the monthly business meeting.
