Lord, let us not forget that everything we have is from you. Keep our world living by your command. Amen.

Recent Programs and Meeting Held

Sept 13 We welcomed a soon-to-be new member, Aaron Fuhrman. Walt brought Aaron to our meetings. He was a member before of the Club of the Stroudsburgs. Aaron relocated his business to Phillipsburg so we are a perfect fit. Quick reminder about next weeks meeting on the 20th. We will have lunch at the Pomfret Club and then go to the new Easton Police Headquarters on 4th St (parking available there) for an in depth tour with current Police Chief Scalzo and a former Police Chief we all know and love, Skip Fairchild. Barb reminded us that next week Rose Orders are due. Walt reported that he has been in contact with the head of Easton Police’s Vice Unit and he and the committee hopes to meet soon to discuss what our club can do to help eliminate the opioid crisis in the area. Walt also offered Palmer Kiwanis the opportunity to join with us on this serious but timely problem. Walt and Janet will begin to investigate dates for a springtime Applebee’ Flapjack fundraiser. Dean reminded us that 31st Easton Jazz Festival to benefit the Boys & Girls Club is this Friday Sept 15th at the Lafayette College’s Williams Center for the Arts. And speaking of the Williams Art Center today’s speaker was Hollis Ashby, Director of the Center. Hollis came to Lafayette about 2 years ago from U C Berkley in California. Formerly Ellis Finger who has retired directed the Williams Center. What Hollis wanted us all to make sure we and everyone we talk to knows that the Williams Center and just about all its performances are open to the public; not just Lafayette students. She explained why colleges for many years have built various “performance halls.” As it was colleges built large lecture halls and had to make them acoustically perfected so students could hear their instructors. Then over the years many of the smaller college towns the lecture hall became a performing hall when it was not used for lectures. For some small towns this was where various live theatre troupes performed and was a way to bring entertainment to towns. Not all towns and cities have The Historic State Theatre. Hollis mentioned that one of the first people she met was Dean with the planning for the Jazz Festival that year. Throughout the year the Williams Center tries to bring in a variety of reasonably priced shows for the families in the community. It is a smaller venue with some 400 seats; very intimate for performers. The shows for the younger audiences even include an “audience guide” for families to use to help explain to their children what the play is about. Many times there are “meet & greets” after the performance. The newly opened Buck Hall on North Third St is a “black box” theatre that our club toured last year. Currently there are upcoming shows in the Buck for the National Theatre Live: the best of London Theater captured live and shown on a large video screen.
