  Why Become A Lion ?  
  Membership in a Lions Club means that members have the opportunity to meet and work with other individuals in a spirit of fellowship, striving towards common ideas and goals. Through this concern for others, members have the opportunity to make suggestions, give their opinions, and take the initiative to their capacity for leadership.  
  History Of The Lions  
  The International Association of Lions Clubs was born at a meeting in Chicago, Illinois on Jue 7, 1917. Melvin Jones, a young insurance executive, invited members of 25 Chicago-area businessmen's clubs to meet and discuss the possibility of joining together to serve the community. From that meeting ca a call for the Associations's first national (and later international) convention. This convention was held October 8-10, 1919 in Dallas, Texas with 23 clubs from across the United States participating.  
  In 1925, Hellen Keller challenged the Lions to become "Knights of the Blind" in the crusade against darkness."  Since that time, Lions have added major service projects for hearing and speech actions and work with the deaf; diabetes awareness; drug awareness; environmental services; and, youth activities through their Leo Clubs and the Lions Quest Skills For Adolescence program.  
  The Fairport Lions Club was chartered on September 19, 1949 and has been serving the Fairport Community since that time.
