The Mason Lions Club met Tuesday, August 24th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 36 members and 3 visitors in attendance.
"Boss Lion" John Gammill, along with Lion Lee Graham and Eva Tannehill gave reports on the 5K/10K Run/Walk to be sponsored by the Lions Club on October 2, 2010. Volunteers are needed to help out on that Saturday morning, to get the course markers out, to help with traffic in the area, to keep walkers and runners safe, and also keep all participants on the course. Anyone that would like to help can get in touch with Mr. Lee Graham. About 20-25 volunteers are needed, with most of them being Lions Club members.
