Lions Clubs International began in 1917 as the dream of an enthusiastic Chicago businessman who believed that people should work toward the betterment of their communities. Lions Clubs International is now the world’s largest service club organization with 1.3 million members in 45,000 clubs in 202 countries and geographic areas. Lions are men and women who volunteer their time to humanitarian causes. The association’s motto is “We Serve.”
Today the Rockford Lions Club programs support sight conservation, hearing and speech conservation, diabetes awareness, youth outreach, international relations, environmental issues, and many other programs. Our fundraising efforts include White Cane Days, can drives, Start of Summer Beer Tent, Harvest Fest Beer Tent, and through private donations. 100% of the proceeds are donated back to our community!
Together, we can make our communities—and the world—a better place for all people.
