President’s Message – Apr 2017

Have you ever set out in search of one thing, and end-up finding something really cool and unexpected? Lately, for me, it seems to happen every week. The latest was at the SAS Global Forum in Orlando, April 1-5.

How many events have you gone to and got to make a picture out of LEGOS to help 2,000 less fortunate students…

President’s Message – Mar 2017

“Not above you, not beneath you, but with you!” We say these words, together, at the beginning of each meeting. These words are the essence of what it means to be a Lion.

President’s Message – 85th Anniversary

Vince Lombardi, a legendary coach, once said “The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.” Hard work, dedication and doing our best describes who the Easton Lions are and have been over the past …

President Elect’s Message – Jun 2016

About 7 years ago, Jon Morgan introduced me to the Easton Lions.  At that time, I was coaching his son on the FIRST Lego Robotics team.  Not long after meeting Jon I was down at the Holiday Festival with my kids.  We were walking around, enjoying the live music and getting some fried dough.  While at the dough booth I …
