In 1917, a Chicago businessman named Melvin Jones, asked a small group of fellow business people to form an organization to help those in need, feeling that a larger group of individuals could do more than he could do as one individual. He called the organization the Lions Club.
From Melvin Jones, one individual wanting to help those in need, “Lionism” has grown from community to community, state to state and country to country.
Today, Lions Club International is the world’s largest service club organization – a network of over 1.4 million men and women in approximately 48,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographic areas who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities around the world.
