This year has been a unique one for new Lions. Three years ago, in 2019, thirteen new Lions joined the Easton Lions Club. In the spring of 2019 these new Lions were inducted into the Easton Lions Club in a formal ceremony.
Since then, THREE years have passed, and THIRTY-FIVE new Lions have joined the Easton Lions Club!
On April 27th The Easton Lions Club held its first Induction Night in three years. Rob Goodrich presided over the ceremony and explained that these individuals have been invited to and have accepted membership into Lions Clubs International.
These members join int the world’s largest and most active service club organization; a group of approximately 1.4 million men and women in 47,000 clubs in over 201 countries around the globe, who are dedicated to making a difference. Through membership, these new Lions will strengthen the reach out to people in need in our community, and throughout the world.
Lion Rob then asked all new Lions were asked to respond “I will” to:
“I do hereby accept membership in the Easton Lions Club knowing that such membership encourages me to participate in functions of the club. To the best of my ability I will abide by the Lions Code of Ethics, and contribute my share to the programs of my club, district and Lions Clubs International.”Lions Pledge
