The Mason Lions Club met Tuesday, August 11th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 35 members and 1 visitor in attendance.
Lion Denwood Butler was responsible for the program and introduced Don Durflinger who spoke about speed reading, brain stimulation and brain cell regeneration, and George Washington Carver.
Don said he took the Evelyn Wood Speed Reading Course as an off-campus course while he was in graduate school. He stated that the course helped improve his reading ability from 200 words per minute to his very best of 10,000 words per minute with 100% comprehension. He recommends the course to anyone, especially high school and college students. Don said he would be interested in helping anyone on the reading if they would contact him. Don, also, told us about a brain stimulation course he took a few years ago. Don said this course helped him in his mental abilities more than any course he took in college or graduate school. He said he highly recommends this course to any age person.
The club's next meeting will be held Tuesday, Aug. 18th, at noon at Zavala's. The program chairman will be Tom Canfield.
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.
