The Mason Lions Club met Tuesday, July 8th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 42 members and 2 visitors in attendance.
Lion Brian Boudreaux was responsible for the program and introduced Steve Dyer of the L. C. R. A. who spoke about the history of the Lower Colorado River Authority. The Legislators of 1934 passed a bill enabling the L.C.R.A. to be formed. Their purpose was to help control flooding on the Colorado River and to generate electricity from the controlled flow of this river. The Colorado River is the largest river in length and in volume of water that has it's origin in the state. The L.C.R.A. was formed after the bankruptcy of the Insell Electric Company.
The club's next meeting will be held Tuesday, July 15th, at noon.
