Celebrating Lions for 100 Years:
Where There's A Need, There's A Lion
Lions of District 2-A3 are proud to be a part of the rich history in Texas for 100 years. Our commitment to our community, state and the world is our legacy and our challenges are the stepping stones to success. There are New Mountains to Climb, New challenges to meet, New people to serve, New members to welcome and New leaders to guide us. This is the time to prepare ourselves and those who follow behind us, for the next 100 years. PDG Helen Muse will share more information through out the year.
Founded in Chicago, Illinois, USA in 1917 by Melvin Jones and others, Lions Clubs International has grown dramatically over the years. Lions are recognized worldwide for their services to the blind and the visually impaired. This service began when Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become her "Knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness" during the association's 1925 International Convention. The association is both non-political and non-sectarian.
I'm asking you to join me in this continuing journey as we climb to new heights! We join Lions around the world as we celebrate 100 years of Lions humanitarian service and prepare for our second century of service.
