In December 2019, Mason, at the age of 3, was involved in a terrible ATV accident.  Since that time, the young man has endured numerous medical procedures and operations.  Mason and his family still have many challenges and obstacles to face, but the community support and extended reach of prayers around the world have brought miraculous steps of improvement for Mason. Many updates on his progress are catalogues on the 'Miracles for Mason' Facebook page.

Saturday, April 10th, a huge Miracles of Mason fundraiser will take place at Shirley Creek Marina near Etoile.  The event will start at 12 noon.  There will be a number of ways to raise funds at this fundraiser.

LOOK: Stunning vintage photos capture the beauty of America's national parks

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
