The Mason Lions Club met Tuesday, September 23, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 40 members and 4 visitors in attendance. Among the visitors were 2 Mason High School Seniors, Bobby Buist, and Courtland Hemphill.
Lion Will Frey was responsible for the program and introduced Sheryl Burleson-President of the P.T.O. who spoke about the P.T.O. in the Mason School. P.T.O. stands for Parent-Teacher Organization. The P.T.O. is a local organization that is not affiliated with any state or national organization that works with the school to help the students in their time at school. It opens a line of communication between the teachers, parents and students. Sheryl gave a quick overview of the goals of the P.T.O. and some of the projects that they were working on. She also talked about how the Lions Club could possibly help them out.
The club's next meeting will be held Tuesday, September 30, at noon at Zavala's. The program chairman will be Ron Freytag and the program will be on the Texas Nature Project.
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.
