At its Jan. 18 meeting, the Saugus Lions Club installed three new members: Paul Oster, Lou Rossi and Bob Palleschi.
At the meeting, club members also heard from a guest speaker who shared some stories about the involvement of some of her family members in the club’s historic past. Ellen LeClair, the mother of three children and two grandsons, recalled how her maternal grandfather’s mother raised her three sons on upper Essex Street in that big old house around a stone wall bend in Cliftondale. All three Rice brothers served in World War I. Ellen LeClair’s father and grandfather were also Saugus Lions.
She held up the Saugus Lions 1979 charter document from the 50th Anniversary of the club in 1979. All the 1979 members signed the document.
Members thanked her for sharing the wonderful history and the stories of the Saugus Lions Club’s proud tradition.
