The Mason Lions Club met Tuesday, March 29th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 36 members and two visitors in attendance.
Lion Jack Lee was responsible for the program and he introduced Lion John Gammill who spoke about the Pedia-Vision screening machine the Lions Club bought and uses to screen the children, six months to six years of age for eye problems.
John said that last year, approximately 284 children were screened and that many more were expected to be screened this year. The Lions are planning on having a screening at school during Parents' Night, and at the Health Fair later this spring.
The club's next meeting will be held Tuesday, April 5th, at noon at Zavala's. The program will be the monthly business meeting.
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.
