Matthew Cioffi winter 2015-16.

We had a very full evening at our second meeting of February. Below are the highlights and contacts to get more information on upcoming activities.

New Event – Lions Pride Math Contest

New member Pratima Penumarthy and President Nancy Sullivan have proposed a new event.  This is a unique event to engage our youth in Easton.  It’s planned for Saturday June 25th, 2016.  The goal is to stimulate enthusiasm and a love for Mathematics, creativity in problem solving, ingenuity, and the thrill of meeting challenges. We need about 10-15 Lions to help with this event.  Details are on our website at www.eastonlions.org/math.  If you are interested or would like to learn more please contact Pratima at admin@homathandchess-easton-ma.com.
