This year has been a blast. We threw a few stones into the pond and the ripples are still spreading out today. I want to thank everyone for their hard work this year at all our events.

Inaugural Fishing Derby a Big Hit!

Saturday morning, on May 13, 2017, The Easton Lions were blessed with the perfect morning for a fishing derby at the old Governor Ames Estate Shovel Shop Pond.

Calico Bass), Bluegill (a.k.a. Sunfish), and Pickerel…

As a runner, after months of building-up miles, there’s nothing more satisfying…
