On Wednesday, October 1st, the Easton Lions Club hosted the annual Chicken BBQ for the elderly up at the Council on Aging Building on Barrows Street. This year’s menu consisted of grilled chicken, baked beans, rolls, potato salad, green salad and cake. The seniors were well entertained by Mr. Frank Paul on trumpet and “Smiling Gerry Gottshalk” on piano. Of course, I know Tom Hedrick was there in spirit with us, as he always loved the Seniors BBQ.
A big thank you to all the Lion’s that helped out this day: On the grill we had Tony “Hot Fingers” Cabral, assisted by Stan Borgeson, and Lynn Cleveland. Staffing the serving line was Bob “Paper and Plates” Moulton, Matt “Hot Buns” Soeldner, Jeannie “Potato Salad” Ebert, Jimmy “Baked Beans” Howarth, George “Tossed Salad” Cortizo, and Charlie “Chicken Man” Hammond.
“Our servers really delivered for us today” said John Mallers, chairman of the event. Back in the kitchen we had Tia “Cut the Cake” Famularo, Nancy Sullivan, Cindy Tuck. Lion’s President Dennis Gutman, filled in all the gaps, as the event went flawlessly. “We’d like to especially thank Mrs. Del Kent and Tobie Feidt as the event couldn’t have happened without their help” said Kevin Williams. We look forward to next year’s event!
