Reaffirming Fellowship Through Membership

Through membership in a Lions club, people not only help those in need, but have opportunities to develop personal friendships and gain valuable leadership skills.

Membership in a Lions club is by invitation. The association is governed by an international board of directors. Each year more than 20,000 Lions attend their international conventions to discuss new ideas, share experiences and reaffirm frindship and fellowship.

The Maple Grove Lions Club is always looking for
new members.

The Maple Grove Lions meet twice a month, on the first and third Tuesday.

If you have an interest in providing community service, we would like to hear from you. For more specific information or to secure a sponsor for membership, please contact us.

Lions International History

The International Association of Lions Clubs began as the dream of Chicago businessman, Melvin Jones. He believed that local business clubs should expand their horizons from purely professional concerns to the betterment of their communities and the world at large.

Jones' own group, the Business Circle of Chicago,
agreed and after contacting similar groups around the country, an organizational meeting was held on June 7, 1917, at the LaSalle Hotel in Chicago. A national convention of the "Association of Lions Clubs" was held in Dallas in October of that year, approving a constitution, by-laws, objects and code of ethics.

Among the official objects adopted in those early years was one which remains one of Lions' main tenets: "No club shall hold out the financial betterment of its members as its object."

In 1925, Helen Keller addressed the Lions at their annual International Convention, challenging them to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness." Since that time, service to the blind and visually impaired has become on of the association's most significant activities. That crusade has resulted in the establishment of International SightFirst, in 1990, an aggressive global blindness prevention program.

Forty million people are blind, yet 80 percent of all blindness is preventable or reversible. International Sightfirst is an unprecedented program which joins leading blindness experts, blindness prevention organization, governments and Lions in an effort to establish long-term solutions in eliminating blindness.
 

The Maple Grove Lions support the activities of Lions International and also work very actively within the Maple Grove area donating money and time to further our community and make it a better place to live and work. Check out our Memorable Events and Current Projects pages to learn more.
