Why have you despised the word of the Lord, to do what is evil in his sight? 2 Samuel 12:9

Paul wrote: God’s firm foundation stands, bearing this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Let everyone who calls on the name of the Lord turn away from wickedness.” 2 Timothy 2:19

Lord, forgive our foolish ways when we despise your word. Help us to live in ways that are pleasing to you. Help us to love what you love and hate what you hate. Cleanse us from all forms of unrighteousness through the blood of your son, Jesus, who is the Christ. In His name we pray. Amen.

Recent Programs and Meeting Held

Oct 18 We had a good turnout for today’s meeting; 19 members + one speaker! Bill began the meeting by ringing our bell and then led us in the Pledge of Allegiance, God Bless America and our table grace. There were no guests so he went right to committee reports. Walt reported that there are 2 K-Kids meetings today and he will be at the one at Cheston and Nick will be at the one at Paxinosa. Barb reported that our roses will arrive tomorrow morning and help is needed to construct boxes and package the roses. There will be a sheet with the number of roses each person is to take so be sure to check with her before leaving with your roses. James reported on the Opioid Awareness informational meeting next Tuesday evening at the Paxinosa school. Palmer Kiwanis will have 5 volunteers there so lets have at least that many from Easton Kiwanis. We, along with the Boys & Girls Club, the Easton Police Dept., and other panelists are on the leading edge of a wave to promote awareness. Everyone will be served pizza in the cafeteria and then go to the auditorium for a video presentation and then a discussion with 5 panelists who will be there to discuss ways to fight this problem. It is open to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders and their parents. Ken held a brief foundation meeting to approve payment of a bill from Keenan/Nagle Advertising agency to pay for the brochures promoting the Easton Playground and Gardens project at the Boys & Girls Club. Bill reported that 4 of us attended the Easton Hosing Authority meeting on Tuesday where they affirmed their support of the 100th anniversary project and they also pledged $10,000 in support of the project. And, we have it in writing! Bill presented a check to Joanne for $100 from our southern most member Jim Masterson for the foundation to support the project. He included a note saying that he misses everyone. Then there was a check for Dean towards their weekly bowling for 20 kids, and another one from Citizen’s Hose Co. that came by way of Walt who was at the Palmer Kiwanis meeting this morning. (And Dean was at Palmer Kiwanis earlier to get yet another check from them.) Still one more check was presented to Chris Paltz in support of the PAL Fun Run. Then, Skip introduced our speaker, Jared Mast, a “philosophic artist” with a degree in city planning. He is the director of the Greater Easton Development Partnership. They were originally formed in 1983 and renamed in 2003. They are involved in the development of many Easton area projects such as the Silk Mill project, the Easton Public Market, The Easton Farmers Market (the oldest in the country) the Garlic Fest, the Bacon Fest and many other projects. The Easton Main St. initiative promotes the downtown promoting cleanliness, safety, and tourism with their ambassadors who are available to help anyone not familiar with Easton. Greater Easton is larger than the downtown and they also help support West Ward neighborhoods. They have a staff of 7 full time employees and 3-5 part timers. Many questions were addressed including the DiVinci Center proposed for downtown, future parking garages, the Black Diamond project and the Silk Mill projects.
