The Mason Lions Club met Tuesday, January 11th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 40 members and 1 visitor in attendance.
Lion Jeff Grote was responsible for the program and introduced Susan Neal, an investigator with Child Protective Services who spoke about her job, and what she experiences in carrying out the duties of that job. Susan told of several cases she had investigated that really helped the child and family; and, one case where a child she helped later became a law officer because of her involvement in their life.
Susan said not all cases work out the way she would like, but she felt there was some good that came out of all her work. She said she had been doing this job for 35 years and felt it was very rewarding. She also said she would not want to work in a big city.
The club's next meeting will be held Tuesday, January 18th, at noon at Zavala's. The program chairman will be Kirby Groves.
The Mason Lions 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.
