One day, at one of our most productive Leo meetings, someone brought up the idea to create a calendar.
This seemed to be the perfect item to sell at Silverman’s farm in Easton in the fall of 2009. As Irv Silverman is a member of the Easton Lions Club himself, he allowed us to have a booth at the farm in the apple picking season. Little did we know how much of a good time we would have, and how much hard work it would take to bring this idea from being written on paper, to being an authentic Leo’s 2010 Calendar!
We decided to create calendar that had pictures from the Easton area from all season. The first pictures were taken in the middle of the winter. Before going to meet at the Deen’s house, my sister and I put on some of our warmest Winter clothing, got our cameras ready, and we went out to have a good time in the beautiful Winter weather. I could tell we were not there to fool around, we took some great pictures of the Easton winter scenery.
From that day on, everyone independently took gorgeous snapshots of the Easton scenery and environment, if you’ve seen the calendar you might recognize some of the Easton landmarks!

As the seasons passed we made and sent pictures and voted on pictures that we wanted to use. When it came to printing the calendar, the company where TJ’s dad works, Oce North America, offered to print the calendars, and their neighboring company KENO Graphic services, did the finishing. A BIG THANK YOU! – without your help this would not have been possible!
Looking at the finished calendar for 2010 felt like a dream, we were so happy with the final result. We sold them at Silverman’s, to family members and we even became door to door salespeople. I hope we will do it again for the year of 2011!
