Mansfield Lions Club Meeting

The guest speaker at the Lions Club last week was fellow Lion, the Honorable Nicholas Gasper, who is one of our District Judges.  Judge Gasper caught us up on the status and timetable for the Brian Horne case which will be re-tried at our Parish Courthouse here in Mansfield, La.  Judge Amy McCarthy and the Prosecutors are all down in Vernon Parish for Jury Selection.  Those Jurors will be sequestered here during the week’s long trial.

In other business the Club voted to donate their usual yearly sum to the Lions Camp in Leesville AND a substantial amount to the Lions Foundation.  Those things along with increased membership, community projects such as eyeglass recycling and roadside trash pickup have the Mansfield Lions again in line to receive the Club Excellence Award! 

The Lions meet every second and fourth Tuesday for a catered lunch at the Clista A. Calhoun Center and you are welcome to come by and enjoy the food and the company and the networking.
