President Elect’s Message – Apr 2016

Matthew Cioffi winter 2015-16.

Spring is here and our club is busy as ever.  Since the Auction many Lions have been busy at the Thrift Store, Henry  pulled-off another successful Junk Day, Pratima is heading up the charge to start our first annual Lions Pride Math Challenge on June 25th, and you’ve probably seen several Lions busy running for local offices or helping out on Election Day April 26th.  The month of April has been simply amazing!

Thrift Store Breaking Records

The crew at the Thrift Store is heading into a record breaking month.  The first three weeks of April we have raised over $8,000!! One week we raised the bar and set a new record.  Being able to accept credit cards has been huge!  We’ve also been fortunate to have received many unique items donated by local Easton residents.  Some of the one-of-a-kind items included a QR-Triathlete carbon-fiber bicycle, Hoveround, Howard Mills solid cherry curio cabinet, and a white solid wood bedroom set.  We’ve also had an abundance of everyday items that have been selling like wildfire.  Many thanks to everyone that has made the Store such a success over the years!  Your hard work has paid dividends with customers spreading the word about the gem we have in Easton.

Junk Day Lions Help with Clean-up

Junk Day, held each year in conjunction with Easton’s annual Hazardous Waste Day, was again a big success.  We had a great turnout of Lions for both pick-ups and help with sorting all the unwanted items townfolks brought in.  Henry said “it’s truly amazing that he did not have to make one phone call to get all these Lions to show up.”  John Mallers again arrived with an amazing load stacked high with a large electric Barbie Convertible topping it all off.  I wish I had a picture.  If you have one email it to me, I’ll put it on the web!   It truly was a great morning to work with Lions both old and new.  Thank you all who showed up, this event could not happen without your dedication!

Cheers,

Matthew Cioffi
