    We Are Part of the International Association of Lions Clubs

    The International Association of Lions Clubs was created in 1917 from a dream of Chicagoan Melvin Jones for “business leaders to give something back to their community.” In 1925 the Lions Clubs became “knights of the blind in the crusade against blindness” and assist those people who are blind or visually impaired. The Lions Club has grown to over 46,000 clubs in 193 countries worldwide. Additionally, the Lions Club has been helping many people of all walks of life in meeting the demands of today’s world by providing food, shelter assistance, eye examinations and glasses, hearing examinations and hearing aides, public awareness and education on visual and hearing impairment, fixing up parks, and many other things.
