The Mason Lions club met Tuesday, April 26th, for its regular weekly meeting. There were 41 members and three guests in attendance.
"Boss Lion," Joel Kuykendall, was awarded the International Leadership Award at the District Lions Convention in San Angelo on April 23rd.
Chase Smith was responsible for the program and introduced Shannon Worrell who gave a program on her restoration of the Will Zesch house (the old Anna Lee Nursing Home).
After an extensive cleanup, Shannon has found the original ranch house built in the early 1800s by a Mr. Fulton, who has a city street and a section of town named after him. Will Zesch bought the house in 1898 and it was in the Zesch family until 1957 when it was sold to Anna Lee.
The club’s next meeting will be held next Tuesday, May 3rd, at noon at Nacho's Cafe.
