Lions Clubs International serves people throughout the world. Globally, Lions clubs are known for their commitment to blindness prevention and services to the visually impaired. This service began when Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become her "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness" during the association's 1925 International Convention.
In addition, as the world's largest, youngest and most active service organization, Lions are recognized for their dedication to community service and improvement. Projects include eye and hearing screenings and related services, diabetes awareness, opportunities to improve the day-to-day life in communities, scholarships, youth projects.
Through the efforts of our members and the continuing support from the residents of our area communities we will provide for those in need.
