The Mason Lions Club met Tuesday, September 9th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 43 members and 1 visitors in attendance.

Lion Nolan Donop was responsible for the program and spoke about his time in the armed forces during World War II. Nolan served in Africa and Italy as well as other places. He talked of his "Hilda" buddies that he took basic training with and then meet up with again for a short time over seas. Nolan told about the "tough" times that the troops endured, but they were just "doing their job". Nolan reminded us all of the freedom we enjoy and that those freedoms are not free, but paid for by our U. S. troops. Who have fought, died, and continue to serve.

The Lions Club would like to thank everyone that made our Hamburger Lunch a Big Success on September 5th.

The Mason Lions Club 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 bank. Also, please contact any Mason Lion if you know of anyone in our community unable to afford appropriate eye care.
