DECEMBER 2003 MEMBERSHIP PROFILE
Perry Mason working in the kitchen at the
Moshannon Community Center during the Spaghetti
Mason and his family are fairly new to the
Clarence area, having resided in Altoona
for 8 years and here since 1997. Yet in
this amount of time they have become very
community active not only with the SSRTA,
but also coaching girl’s softball
and boy’s and girl’s basketball.
Perry was our past president for 2001 through
2002 and is now acting treasurer. Perry’s
wife Carrie has chaired the Walker’s
Committee and now chairs the Signage Committee.
We had a very nice picture of Carrie and
their daughter Amanda planting flowers at
the Clarence Kiosk in our last newsletter.
Amanda attends Mountaintop Elementary and
their son Aaron attends Bald Eagle Area
High School. Perry works for the State College
Water Authority and Carrie drives school
bus and van for Jim & Terry’s
Reliable Auto. Between the two of them Perry
and Carrie have been the driving force behind
our annual Spaghetti Fund Raising Dinner.
They have participated in the Red Moshannon
Canoe Race serving up some much appreciated
food and drinks. Perry is our main liaison
to the Quehanna Boot Camp (see article presenting
plaque on the next page). Due to his energy
and drive many projects concerning the trail’s
development and safety have been accomplished.
The Mason’s each enjoy driving their
own ATVs and as a family have shared quality
time out on the trail.
