What is a Lions club?A Lions club is a group that comes together and shares a common interest in community service, supporting the Lions motto "We Serve."

Lions are recognized worldwide for their service to the blind and visually impaired. This service began when Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness" during the association's 1925 international convention
