Welcome, Tom

We have a new president; and I don’t mean Obama has left the building. The Millerton Lions have elected Tom Brozowski, a relative newcomer to our area, as their president. Tom comes to us from Wayne, N.J., where he had served as president of their club. He already has some new ideas and we look forward to exploring them, welcoming his experience and commitment.

Shhh, it’s a silent auction

Hi, everybody. It’s been quiet in Lion-land and the quiet is gonna continue ‘cuz we are having our annual silent auction on Saturday, Sept. 21, at American Legion Post 178 on Route 44 in Millerton. So practice up on your “whispering” or play the famous “let’s see who can be quiet the longest” game my siblings and I always fell for.

There will be lots of great finger foods supplied by “NASCAR” Dave and his Sunday in the Country crew; along with some equally yummy desserts.

Club members invigorated after long winter

I’m back ... and glad to be here after our seemingly endless winter. The Millerton Lions Club met at the American Legion Post 178 for our first meeting of the new year on Wednesday, March 27. It was nice to see everyone again and get back in the thick of things.

President Todd Clinton and the board of directors came out of the box swinging with plans already underway for our new year ... and all before dinner was served.

The Millerton Lions Club members gathered on Wednesday, July 27, at Post 178 in Millerton — our meeting spot. We had a good turnout and enjoyed good food and good times with both old friends and new.

Joining us for the evening were Justin Katan and his mother, Cheryl, as well as Jeremy Herz and his father, Matthew. These young men are two of our three scholarship recipients from the 2011 graduating class of Webutuck High School.

Lions Tales

Success — what a sweet sound. Our second Lions-sponsored carnival took place at Eddie Collins Field on Route 22 in Millerton from Thursday, June 2, through Sunday, June 5.

The Commerford and Sons Carnival from Goshen, Conn., provided the entertainment and we provided great food, great location and, dare we say, great weather.
