The Mason Lions Club met Tuesday, July 28th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 38 members and 2 visitors in attendance.
Lion Will Fry was responsible for the program and introduced Will Herron of Dripping Springs who spoke about his participation in their "Bass Brigade" Camp. The camp is part of the Texas Brigade Camps that include the Bobwhite Brigade, Buckskin Brigade, and the Bass Brigade. These Camps teach students, age 13-17 yrs. old, about the Bobwhite Quail, Whitetail Deer and Bass fish found in Texas, respectively, Will said he attended the camp held in Mexia, Texas. He said he learned a lot about bass found in Texas waters. Will said the campers were kept very busy and although they only got about 10 hours sleep the whole week, the camp was very enjoyable. Will is the grandson of Will and Rita Frey.
Linda Daly, along with James Price and Teresa Gray of the Kingsland Lions Club were at the meeting to demonstrate an eye screening device that the Mason Lions Club is considering buying to screen children for early eye problems.

The Mason Lions 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.
