The Mason Lions Club met Tuesday, Jan. 12th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 26 members and 7 visitors in attendance. Among the visitors were 2 Mason High School Seniors, Jorge Morrales and Michael McGowen.

Lion Kendall Hemphill was responsible for the program and he gave an interesting program about Coleman Lanterns. W. C. Coleman invented the Coleman Lantern after seeing lights in the city that were burned using gas under pressure. He devised a way to make the light portable and to use any flammable liquid. Kendall told of all the other items that Coleman invented using this same principle. Some of these were the Coleman Camp Stove and the camp stove used by the G. I.'s during World War II.

The club's next meeting will be held Tuesday, Jan. 19th, at noon at Zavala's.

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.
