Kiwanis 95th & Gala Celebration of Service

May 1st, 2013 at the Pomfret Club in Easton, PA, over 155 attendees gathered with the Easton Kiwanis Club to celebrate its 95th anniversary. To commemorate this wonderful milestone event, 9 members who have reached Legion-of-Honor status in the Kiwanis organization were asked to name charities that would receive financial grants from the Easton Kiwanis Foundation in the amount of $20 per year of membership for the 316 years represented by those members. In total 8 charities received $6320 at the Gala.

The Legacy of Service honorees were: 56 years-John Wilbur Mack; 50 years-Roger J. Conners, II; 40 years-William H. Fifield; 35 years-Victor F. Dennis; 30 years-William D. Walters, Charles F. Adams; 25 years-James M. Masterson, Joanne M. Cappellano, Gabriel Dean Young. The charities named by the honorees were: Boys & Girls Club of Easton; Easton Area Community Center; Colonial Intermediate Unit 20; Miller-Keystone Blood Bank; Northampton County Historical & Genealogical Society/Sigal Museum; Salvation Army of Easton; Shanti Project; Special Olympics of Northampton County.

Another, more somber recognition also took place honoring a Kiwanis member who had died in 2012. Thomas Barton, a second-generation Kiwanian, would have celebrated 20 years in Kiwanis in 2013. His family was present and his mother Betty Barton received the Pennsylvania Kiwanis Foundation Pliny J. Wilson Award named for the 1st Governor of Pennsylvania Kiwanis.

In attendance were not only Easton Kiwanians and their spouses and friends but also many Kiwanis members from other Kiwanis Clubs as far away as Harrisburg and Pottsville and Pennsylvania District of Kiwanis officials were present. Rotary and Lions Club members too were in attendance. Representatives from each of the charities honored were present. Local, state and national legislators and their representatives presented citations to not only the club but also each of the honorees.
