LIONS CLUB INTERNATIONAL

In 1917 Melvin Jones a Chicago business leader told members of his local business club they should reach beyond business issues and address the betterment of their communities and the world. Jones\' group the Business Circle of Chicago agreed.

After contacting similar groups around the United States an organizational meeting was held on June 7 1917 in Chicago Illinois USA. The new group took the name of one of the invited groups the \"Association of Lions Clubs\" and a national convention was held in Dallas Texas USA in October of that year. A constitution by-laws objects and a code of ethics were approved.

Within three years Lions became an international organization. Since then we\'ve earned high marks for both integrity and transparency. We\'re a well-run organization with a steady vision a clear mission and a long – and proud – history.
