On January 13, 2017, we remembered another good friend and fellow lion Bob Farrand who passed away into a new life. Bob joined the Easton Lions Club in March 2005 and he was one of Easton Lions’ Melvins Jones Fellows. He was our Eyeglasses chair for many years and helped-out at many of our events from the rink to the auction. I remember him for his welcoming smile and talking with him about the Lions eyeglass collection program. We as Lions are proud to have served with Bob.
We also honored two valuable members of our club for their work in the Auction and for their work as Lions. At our March 8th meeting, Matthew Cioffi, club president, recognized two Lions for their service as Easton Lions Club’s Lion of the Month.
- For February, Marilyn Henderson was honored for being our Auction Solicitor Extraordinaire. She reached a personal best in total donations for the auction of over $9,000 and for her service as a Lion and our community!
- For March, Dale Kerester was honored for taking the reins of our Auction Team! Leading us by example, listening to our ideas, embracing change and inspiring us to do more!
Thank you both for being model Lions for our Club. I am proud to serve with you!
