This season, he helped make sure he was part of the state tournament festivities.

"Homecoming" in Mason City this weekend

July 27, 2012

MASON CITY - - Although the Lincoln Town Site company named this town Mason after Judge O. P. Mason of Lincoln, the post office refused to accept that name because it could be too easily confused with Macon. So, the railroad referred to it as Mason and the post office became known as Mason City.
Each year Mason City hosts a “Homecoming Celebration”, which not only beckons alumni of the community’s now extinct school, but to all who have fond memories of life in a small town.
