Chances are, most people in the community have benefited from the service, works, and influence of the Morgan Lions Club.  Through their many acts of service, sweet smiles and genuine joy have been reflected on the faces of Morgan children for many generations.  George Francis jokes that the Morgan Lions Club has been around “since the time Columbus sailed the ocean blue.” While the exact date is not known with certainty, the Morgan Lions Club has been around for a very long time, well over 80 years.  Throughout these years it has touched young and old alike. True to their motto “We serve”, the Morgan Lions Club has sponsored many of the celebrations Morgan residents have grown up with and continue to cherish with their own children and grandchildren. Lions clubs can be found serving throughout the world. In fact, they are the world’s largest service club organization. Although the parent organization is an international club, the Morgan Lions Club has been especially focused on the needs of our own community. They have structured the service they provide and activities they sponsor in a way to connect very personally with the people of Morgan.

From spring cleaning to spring singing, the beauty of the world is reborn. For those who celebrate Easter’s true miracles and meanings their baskets and hearts are full of hidden treasures and treats to discover.  One of my favorite parts of Easter is the hiding and hunting for eggs.  It’s a true test of creativity when you can hide a dozen eggs or more and they stay hidden.  Of course, you don’t want to leave any unfound for too long, or else your nose may get a hidden surprise as well.

This month Christians and other Deity devoted denominations began celebrating Lent.  Traditionally, Lent is the forty days before Easter.  It is symbolic of the Biblical account of Jesus’ journey into the wilderness to fast and pray for forty days in preparation for His temptations by the Devil, His suffering in the garden of Gethsemane, His cruel crucifixion and His exalted resurrection; which also leads us to the celebration we know as Easter.  During Lent a person will choose to give up something of significant value in their lives--or something that may not really be valuable, but which a person has placed a value on.  It is a personal and usually private sacrifice not only to increase piety, but to remind oneself that to truly live a more excellent life there are things that must be chosen to be left behind to achieve it--bad habits, sweets, laziness, poisonous people, places and patterns that are unhealthy and unworthy of our time and energy.  They choose to sacrifice them, at least for forty days, so they can excel and learn to live a better, healthier, and happier life.
