Mauck Speaks To Lions Club

The Lion’s Club of San Marcos held their weekly meeting at the San Marcos Activity Center at noon on Friday. The group hosted speaker Jeffrey G. Mauck, PhD from the History Department at Texas State University. He spoke about Spencer Grays and his new book will be entitled “Brave Sons of Indiana”, he is currently awaiting publication.

Mauck, a graduate of Indiana University, has taught at Texas State University over the last six years. His discussion focused primarily on the Indiana Soldiers in the 2nd Regiment of the Indiana Volunteer Infantry during the Mexican War. This Company consisted mostly of soldiers from Floyd County, Indiana, called the Spencer Grays.

He also told the group he expresses an interest in publishing an astronomy book for children also in the future. Mauck laughed as he told the group, “This book might be more appreciated for more than a book for college.”

In club news and announcements, the group acknowledged Jim Braden for his July birthday. The group also discussed their upcoming membership drive as discussed by Cory Dailey.

Harv Suggs, Administrator of Texan Nursing and Rehab, was recognized for many years of service to the club. He said, “I am thankful for the joy and pride I have been able to share. This is the best Lion’s Club I have ever been able to be associated with.”

The group also received a lion statue courtesy of Rowe Ray of the San Marcos Daily Record.
