It doesn’t seem possible but here we are a week away from Thanksgiving. Some will watch the traditional Macy’s Day Parade in New York; then sit down with family and friends for that traditional turkey dinner with all the fixings. And THEN, maybe collapse in a chair to watch the football games (or more than likely take a nap‼‼). Don and I will be actually celebrating three times – early on Thanksgiving Day at Jeff and Janice (son) and then later with my Mom at the assisted living. On Saturday the family will be at our house for more. Guess I better stop by the Thrift Store for a larger outfit‼‼
At the last meeting, Amos Keddem presented longevity awards to several members. Congratulations to: Charlie Hammond – 40 years; Lee Williams – 35 years; Ed Pires – 15 years; both Marilyn Cyr and Darcy Hunter – 10 years‼‼ All very active members. Thanks for your service and keep up the good work.
In October, Membership Chair Amos Keddem conducted the Induction ceremony. It is a very impressive program. Welcome to all those new members‼! The best way to get to know what we are all about is to volunteer for any of the upcoming functions. You will find that it is a lot of fun and very gratifying.
Remember we only are having only one meeting in November because of Thanksgiving. There will be a special meeting on WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 5 at 7:00 PM at the VFW. The annual Holiday Festival is the following weekend – December 7 and 8 and Jon Morgan and the rest of the hard-working committee will be filling us in on the schedule etc.
Matt Cioffi did a tremendous job on the Holiday Festival Program which will be available shortly for distribution. In the meantime, it is already posted on the Easton Lion’s website. You will want to look it over so you don’t miss any of the activities that are planned. Remember, we need lots of help so when Ryan Cook calls you, be ready to pitch in. Please Mother Nature be kind to us and give us good weather. It is okay if we get a little snow as Santa arrives but other than that keep it sunny and not too cold.
The Reindog Parade will be held on December 8 as part of the Holiday Festival from 12-1 PM at North East Savings Bank on Main Street. You can pre-register online at
and the flyer is available for download on the website.
Don’t forget to attend the Easton Garden Club Festival of Trees held at Country Gardens of Easton, Rt 138 in South Easton. The dates are November 23-December 7. Admission is $5.00 and kids go free. The hours vary and more information is posted on their website; www.eastongardenclub.org.
The annual Skate Swap will be held at Yardley Rink on December 14.
Speaking of the website, the Thrift Shop now has a page thanks to Tia Famularo and Sally Zussman. There are pictures of featured items and information about the Thrift. Another great job.
Believe it or not, no one has won the Queen of Hearts. As of this moment, there is $6,743.30 in the pot with ticket sales averaging in excess of $250.00 at each meeting which would mean the pot would be around $7000.00. AND THERE ARE ONLY FIVE CARDS LEFT!
Hope you all have a very Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving.
Yours in Lionism
