RENO HOST LIONS CLUB
R E N O, N E V A D A
The Reno Host Lions Club is Nevada's first chartered Lions Club. Today, at about 70 men and women strong, the Reno Host Lions Club enjoys a long and illustrious history. Chartered by the Oakland Club in 1920, just three years after the Lions movement was founded, Reno Host is the oldest and one of the largest and most active Lions clubs in Nevada. During its entire history, the Reno Host Lions Club has worked to promote the extension of Lionism. It has sponsored numerous Lions clubs throughout the Silver State along with the Truckee Club in neighboring California.
The motto of Lions Clubs International is "We Serve" and the Reno Host Lions have made service their focus for more than 85 years. Since 1925, when Helen Keller stood before the International Convention and challenged members to become "Knights of the Blind in the campaign against darkness," Lions have given the highest priority to sight conservation programs. A Lion invented the white cane and Lions started the first school for guide dogs for the blind.
