The Austintown Lions Club had its monthly Speakers Night May 20 and also presented an RDE scholarship. King Lion Larry Jensen presided over the meeting.
Lion Harold Wilson, the club’s scholarship chairman, presented the RDE scholarship to Caitlin Coble, a recent Fitch graduate who was not only very active in the RDE program, but also in the marching band, key club, drama club, chorus and French Club. She will attend Clarion University in Pennsylvania, where she will study mathematics and photography.
Serving as speaker for the evening was Austintown Trustee Jim Davis. Davis, in his remarks, delved into many subjects involving Austintown but centered mostly on the new Racino project. He gave an interesting talk on the state of Austintown and the many bonuses in store for the township, including not only the Racino but new hotels, restaurants and more employment.
He also spoke on the improvements in infrastructure, need for additional policemen and a new administration building in the future. He praised the police and fire departments for their outstanding work.
