Member of the society’s Publications Committee have been gathering information on Mason during World War II —
transcribing veteran interviews, collecting stories and pictures from families, and putting them into a book.
 
Scheduled to be available this fall (perhaps by Veterans’ Day), this volume is one you will absolutely want to have for your own library.
 
There are so many interesting stories to tell —
chances are you’ll learn something about a relative,
neighbor or friend that is part of “The Greatest Generation.”
 
If you have a WWII story to share, it may not be too late — contact Shirley Renwick at 517-676-5314.
