The History of International Lions founded in Chicago Illinois USA in 1917 by insurance agent Melvin Jones and others Lions Clubs

 International has ever since offered business and professional people a way of sharing their success by helping those less fortunate than them. The association became  international when a club was formed in Canada in 1920. A highlight of its early history was a speech at the

1925 convention when the legendary Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become"knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness." They responded and Lions are now best known for their sight-related programs including SightFirst the world's largest blindness prevention

program. While Lions speak many languages and profess many religious and political beliefs they all subscribe to common objectives and ethical principles.
