The Mason Lions Club met Tuesday, Nov. 17th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 42 members and 4 visitors in attendance. Among the visitors were 4 Mason High School students, Kaitlyn Cavness, Kambrey Hudson, Virginia Lemke, and Jenny Smith.
Lion John Gammill was responsible for the program and introduced Roy Cooper who spoke about his firearms collection. He brought his pistol collection from the military service, mainly from World War II. Roy gave a very informative description of each firearm, as to what country it was made in, the date of manufacturer and caliber. Roy said some of the firearms were pretty rare and some were pretty common. The program was very interesting.
The Ag Issues Team from the Mason H. S. Ag Science Class came to give their presentation before going to the Area Contest in Blanco on November 18th. These young ladies won the Hill District Contest earlier to qualify for the Area Contest.
The club's next meeting will be Tuesday, November 24th, at noon at Zavala's. The program will be Lee Graham.

Also, please contact any Mason Lion if you know of anyone in our community unable to afford appropriate eye care.
