Melvin Jones, who was an insurance agent, founded the Lions Club Association in Chicago, Illinois in 1917. Lions Club International has grown to be the largest service organization in the world. It has over 1.4 million members belonging to local Lions Club throughout the world. Lions Club International headquarters is located in Oak Brook, Illinois, USA. A board of directors, which are elected annually at the International Convention, governs the international association.
Our colors are purple and gold and they were selected at the 1st Convention. Purple stands for loyalty to friends, and integrity of mind and heart. Gold symbolizes sincerity of purpose, kindness in judgement, purity in life, and generosity in mind, heart and purse to those in need. Our slogan is Liberty Intelligence Our Nations Safety (LIONS).
In 1925 Helen Keller, who was blind addressed the Lions International Convention and challenged the Lion members to be "Knights of the Blind in the crusade against darkness". Read Helen Keller's speech.
