What a difference a day makes.And a New Year.And rain.Rain, rain, rain.Half inch, some are saying.And more.Nice and slow.Steady as she goes.Bluebonnet plants abound.Hope springs eternal.And Spring should be hopeful.With a plethora of bluebonnets.And in with the New Year is a new place on the square.Good To Go.Coffee.Casseroles.Catering.Carrying on in the same tradition as PJ’s.And in the same location.Only the name has changed.And the owners.Now Marla Schooley and Bonnie Beam.Stop in for coffee, tea, ice cream, Italian sodas…And more.And a new building is going up behind Tres Caminos.The new home for mechanic Donald Eckert to service trucks, cars, and ranch equipment and vehicles of all kinds.Also new is Mason Community Kitchen.As the saying goes: Charity Begins At Home.A volunteer-based “soup kitchen” prepares fresh soup or casserole—and freezes it—for Mason’s own Food Bank.Clean, cut, chop, cook.Fill, seal, and label containers.Deliver, freeze, clean up.(That is, deliver to the Food Bank, put containers in their freezers, and go back to the school kitchen and clean up).Cook & Pack happens on Saturdays at the Mason School kitchen. Scheduled dates are February 11, March 3, March 31, and April 12.For questions or to sign up, contact Scott Zesch.Charity.Hope.Faith.Good names for girls.And a good triumvirate.“And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; But the greatest of these is charity” [1 Corinthians 13:13].That’s Mason.
