By 1931 Easton was certainly a community in need because America was deep in the Great Depression. Bill Fenwick, stationmaster at the North Easton Depot, wanted to do something to help his town. He and his friends decided to call in the Gillette Brothers, paid fundraisers for the Lions Club, for a meeting at the Minnetonka Restaurant on September 16th. The Minnetonka was centrally located at the junction of Belmont and Washington Street, and it was hoped the meeting would attract men from all over town.
Our club is honored to have many men and women dedicated to service in our community. Each year the Easton Lions club honors our most dedicated and generous members through the Melvin Jones Fellows award. We also recognize our members throughout the year with Lions of the Month, Lion of the Year and other special awards. Our club has also been recognized by the district and state Lions for our service. In addition, we list the members who have served as Club Presidents since 1931.
