Easton Lions – 85 Years of Service – History Team

The Easton Lions Club turns 85 next year and we need your help!  To celebrate this occasion we will publish several articles next year in our Club newsletter and hopefully in the Easton Journal.  Marion is also checking with see if we could do a display at the Ames Free Library during the year that will highlight our Club’s work in Easton.

Ed Hands and Marion Wingfield have graciously volunteered to help me with getting this done.  To that end we need your stories (especially from long-time members), photos and other memorabilia about our Club and the Leo Club.  If you know past members or had older family members who grew up in Easton, pick their brains about what they remember about the Lions in Easton from year’s past.  

To get your ideas going, check out our Club history article written by our former Club  President (1961-62) and Club historian, Norbert “Duke” Duhamel, “Easton Lions Club Serving a Changing World” posted on our website at www.eastonlions.org/history. It starts off with our inception in September 1931 by Bill Fenwick and a group of 20 local businessmen founded our Club up to the 80’s. 

Remember to send your stories, pictures and memorabilia to history@eastonlions.org so Ed Hands, Marion Wingfield and I (Matthew Cioffi) can start pulling ideas together.  We’d also love to talk with you at one of our meetings about your ideas or give me a call at 508-897-9771.
