History of Lions Clubs
The Lions Clubs are nearly 100 years old and began in 1917 when a Chicago business man believed local businesses should expand their horizons from just professional concerns to the betterment of their communities and the world at large. The business circle of Chicago liked the idea and further explored the this through similar groups and at the first meeting the "Association of Lions Clubs" came into existence. Their first national convention was in Dallas in October 1917 and 22 Clubs from 9 states were there to approve the 'Lions Clubs'The establishment of the first Lions Club in Britain was some years later in London in 1950.
