The West Point Band is the Army's oldest active-duty band, founded on the beautiful and historic grounds of the United States Military Academy in 1817. The band traces its lineage to fifers and drummers who were part of Continental Army units at West Point during the time of the American Revolution. Officially established on June 8, 1817, the West Point Band recently celebrated its bicentennial. Although many changes have occurred over the years, music continues to be an essential aspect of daily life for the cadets and soldiers at the Academy. Today, the band continues to inspire and motivate the next generation of the Army’s leaders, as well as serving as musical ambassadors for the Army to the nation.

And what an event it was!  Here are a few pictures of the Easter Basket Drive-By on Saturday, April 1, 2023!  

The kids were extra thrilled to grab a picture with the Lion and Bunny!

The North Salem LIONS Club: A Noble Cause


The North Salem LIONS Club is one of 44,700 LIONS Clubs actively serving their communities, in 186 countries and geographical areas of the world.  LIONS Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization. Its 1.4 million members are dedicated to bettering the quality of life for the handicapped, the poor, the sick and the aged.


The title question has been asked so many times to club members. The word LIONS stand for 



LIONS are committed to partnering with local leaders and organizations, identifying the unique needs of their communities and surrounding areas, and planning service projects that address those needs.  From community clean-up projects to food drives to fundraisers, LIONS help people in need who are far and close to home.


The motto of LIONS Clubs International is “WE SERVE,” and LIONS live this motto with enthusiasm.


A LIONS Club is not a fraternal, social or political organization. It is a group of civic-minded women and men who have banded together to do the things they cannot do alone.  LIONS are willing and anxious to give their time, energy and resources in service to others.


A person is rewarded in “Lionism” by the pleasure and satisfaction of serving others, by improving the community in which she or he lives, and by endeavoring to leave the world a better place than she or he found it.  The rewards are in direct proportion to the efforts expended.


By investing time and effort in club activities, a person receives dividends in new friendships, new status in the community and a heart-warming sense of fulfillment from doing something good for others.  A LIONS Club is a medium through which all these things are available to people of good will.


Please call Sal Pantezzi at 914-669-5247 for more information about activities and joining the North Salem LIONS Club.
