From Wikipedia:

"Lions Clubs International, a service membership organization of over 1.4 million members world-wide (as of April 2015), was founded in the United States on June 7, 1917, by Melvin Jones, a Chicago businessman. Jones asked, with regard to his colleagues, "What if these men who are successful because of their drive, intelligence and ambition, were to put their talents to work improving their communities?"


Jones' personal code, "You can't get very far until you start doing something for somebody else," reminds many Lions of the importance of community service.

The Lions motto is "We Serve." Local Lions Club programs include sight conservation, hearing and speech conservation, diabetes awareness, youth outreach, international relations, environmental issues, and many other programs.


Locally, the Rockford Lions Club is one of the core philanthropic organizations of Rockford. They provide work parties for community beautification, host many local events, conduct campaigns dedicated to bringing the gift of sight to disadvantaged people, give grants and monetary gifts for deserving organizations, all with a smile. If there's something to be done, chances are there's a person with a purple vest involved in the process.
