2020 was a lost year for Lions Clubs the across the world. COVID mandated social distancing requirements and indoor occupancy restrictions caused many Clubs to put activities on hold. Indeed, several of the Easton Lions largest programs were either scaled back or suspended for the year.
But there is no accounting for creativity. Out of the depths of the pandemic Lions Mark Vinocoor and Lynn Kingsbury created a new event: Easton LIVE!, which has given a platform to live music during a period when few musicians have been able to perform.
The program, which broadcasts over the Club’s Facebook page, has featured performances at Shovel Town Brewery, Mockingbird Music, and historic Oakes Ames Hall. Two local businesses, Morse Insurance, and RBC Wealth Management recently announced that they would sponsor the April 30 show at Oakes Ames.
T-shirts with the Easton LIVE! logo are for sale and can be purchased at the Easton Lions Club Thrift Store on Saturday’s from 10 pm – 2pm. Musicians interested in performing on an up-coming show are encouraged to contact Mark Vinocoor.
