Celebration of Service--Easton Kiwanis the First 90 years!

Wednesday September 17th in Easton, PA there was a celebration of service for the Easton Kiwanis Club.  They were celebrating their FIRST 90 years!  What a wonderful night it was at the Pomfret Club.  Fifty-three people attended from members and spouses, visiting Kiwanians and Kiwanis officials, the Mayor of Easton, friends and City neighbors.  The Master of Ceremonies for the evening was Salvation Army Captain Isaiah Allen, an Easton Kiwanian himself who immediately after opening remarks brought Amy Miller director of the Pre-K Counts program in Easton to the podium.  Amy's heartfelt message of “thanks for what Easton Kiwanis has done to help Pre-K Counts get started in Easton” set the tone for the evening.  Past PA Kiwanis Governor Mike Frailey brought his message of "Why you should be a Kiwanian" to the assembled audience.  Incoming Kiwanis Governor John Burke brought "thanks from Kiwanis for the past 90 years and his expectation to be here at our 100th ceremony."  Club President Nick Ciambrone introduced Easton's Mayor Sal Panto who presented the club a Certification of Commendation from the City of Easton for our 90 years of "Changing the World One Child and One Community at a Time."   Captain Allen mentioned that Easton was originally chartered with 99 members in 1918 and Easton was also the 99th Kiwanis Club chartered.

Everyone had time to browse and look at videos and displays of Easton Kiwanis and what they are, have done and are doing for the area.  In the past three years Easton Kiwanis has donated over $65,000 to more than 75 local organizations and individuals.  Members and guests had a chance to mingle and talk "Kiwanis and Hands of Service."   Kiwanians and guests mingled while eating their "munchies" and enjoyed viewing the video and remembering the many friends, some departed, that were in the video and some of the various unusual and humorous “poses” they were in.  If you missed the evening, overhead was a suggestion by someone they do this event every year.  Well, as 90 years has passed, it won't be long before just one more year has also passed.
