On the Move...

On Saturday morning  March 6 the West Goshen DCR (Display Case Removal) Team removed and boxed all items from our display case at the West Chester Quality Inn. They will be stored, cataloged and cleaned in preparation for our 50th Anniversary Charter Night in July, The very large display case was a project many years ago of former President and recently  deceased member Carl F. Lorenz, II. The DCR Team moved quickly and loaded the unit on top of Lion Gary's red pickup. It was so wide that Lion Gary had pre-constructed supports for the move. While the team of movers  hopped in their vehicles and headed north on Rt, 202; Lion Gary slowly navigated the streets of West Chester to his destination,  the West Goshen Township Building. West Goshen Supervisor and Lion Hugh Purnell met the team and Lion Gary at the Township Building. Then came the hard part, moving the case to the second  floor (We knew it was to big for the elevator). We got stuck between the first floor and the first landing. With  the team  members holding on to the case at the top of the first landing, Lion Gary carefully removed about 30 screws  and one of the doors. The rest was rather easy. Special thanks to Lion Walt for running a series of needed errands to help us finish.
NOTE: The West Goshen Lions Club has donated the display case to West Goshen Township. We plan to display our mementos there during our Charter Year and ending in 2022. At a future time the Township will use the display case for assorted displays and exhibits,
