September 2014

by Matthew Cioffi

In September, the Easton Lions launched an updated responsive website that works on screens big and small.  Navigating our old website on a smartphone or a tablet was a struggle at best.  Our old site was designed for a standard sized computer screen and looked great, but everyone these days are on their cellphones and tablets.  To view our old site on a smartphone you had to scroll all over the place to see the content because it didn't fit on the small screen.   It was difficult to find out who we were and what we did.

Over the summer Matthew Cioffi, Sally Zussman and Kathy Shafer worked to move our website to a responsive platform which shapes content automatically to fit the viewing screen size.  At first glance, responsive websites look much like traditional websites. But when they are displayed on devices of different screen sizes, they seamlessly shrink or expand content to fit.  The new website is more enjoyable to view, has less clutter, and it's easier to see on a smartphone without having to zoom in and out to get to it. On larger screens like tablets and personal computers, the site expands with more features.

Our primary domain name is now www.eastonlions.ORG instead of .COM. Using .ORG reflects the fact that we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.   We also added new content (more to come) and restructured old content to take advantage of the responsive design.  The home screen uses the slider to highlight coming events and other projects that are important to the club.  One of the new “What We Do”content pages highlights our eyeglasses recycling program, which was created in consultation with Bob Farrand and includes the places eyeglasses, may be dropped off.  It also integrates links and videos to the Lions Clubs International resources page including a video about the program.  We are also working to add more images to the content pages and to enhance the content of pages about our club and about what we do. 

When you visit our redesigned site, please feel free to make suggestions for additional content or features you’d like to see added or changed.  Our sight will continue to get better with your help!  If you’d like to get more involved with updating content on our website, please contact Matthew Cioffi at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Follicle Fundraising

How often have we said or heard people say “it seemed like a good idea at the time”. Well, with that in mind, it was with some trepidation that I pulled into the parking lot of the Easton Rod and Gun Club for the annual year end cookout...

Eyes on the Web-LCI 100 Years

Our Club’s Facebook cover highlights the LCI 100th anniversary logos and medallions all Lions clubs strive to achieve in our communities. The anniversary tagline fits well with what we have been doing in Easton since 1931, "Where There’s a Need, There’s a Lion"!...

A Day at the Thrift Store

While it was more atypical than typical, Saturday, June 13 was a "barn burner" at the Easton Lions Thrift Store. All hands were on deck and the weather fine...we have been running through inventory at a torrid pace.
