The Power of Brevity, Six-word Stories

Two weeks ago, I asked for your help to tell a six-word story about why you joined the Easton Lions or something memorable about a Lions’ event or service you’ve done or received.  I’ve received some great stories from many of you, and there is definitely room for more.  So keep them coming!  If you have a story you’d like to share, send in to and I’ll be sure to send them along to Nancy Sullivan for our next newsletter.

Below is a sampling of what I have:

Marilyn Henderson

  • We serve, We work, We enjoy.
  • Lions, “Let the good times Roll”.
  • Good food, Good friends. Good times.
  • Work hard, accomplish much, Play hard.
  • Holiday Feasible, Auction, Golf Tournament, Meetings.
  • Learn, Grow, Show, Provide, Care, Enjoy!

  • Lions work to make hearts smile.
  • Easton Lions are a special Pride.
  • Excellence: a natural habitat of Lions.

Avery Lee Williams

  • Charles Johnson had lost his sight.
  • I joined Lions because of Johnson.
This is the rest of the story:
Avery’s story is the one he brings on the road as a guest speaker at Lions Club meetings. It is a form of testimony about an old friend whom Avery brought to a cornea transplant that finally induced him to ask the Easton Lions if he could join. (He had been asked many times previously, but was not quite ready at those askings.)
