About Lions Club International…

The International Association of Lions Clubs began as the dream of Chicago businessman Melvin Jones. He believed that local business clubs should expand their horizons from purely professional concerns to the betterment of their communities and the world at large.

An organizational meeting was held on June 7, 1917 in Chicago, Illinois, USA. The new group adopted the name, “Association of Lions Clubs.” In October of that year a national convention was held in Dallas, Texas. A constitution, by-laws, objects and code of ethics were approved.

In 1925, Helen Keller challenged Lions to become “knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness.” From this time, Lions clubs have been actively involved in service to the blind and visually impaired.

In addition to sight programs, Lions Clubs International is committed to providing services for youth. Lions clubs also work to improve the environment, build homes for the disabled, support diabetes education, conduct hearing programs and, through their foundation, provide disaster relief around the world.

Lions Clubs International has grown to include 1.4 million men and women in 46,000 clubs located in 192 countries and geographic areas.
