Southport Lions Mission
The Lions Club was established in 1917 by Chicago businessman Melvin Jones with the idea of business professionals pooling their energy, talent, and resources toward the service of others. Today Lions Club International (LCI) is the world’s largest service club with close to 1.4 million members. The Lions motto, “We Serve,” reflects our commitment of service to our world, country, state, and community. LCI is commited to supporting the visually-impaired and supporting sight conservation. Lions Clubs strive to improve the lives of the needy and offer the chance to catch the spirit of service.
Southport Lions Club was established in 1945 by a group of concerned and dedicated citizens who wished to follow the ideas and principles of Lions Club International. Today it has over 49 members (women and men) and continues to grow and serve the city of Southport (and neighboring areas) in a wide variety of ways. We raise funds to provide support to numerous charities, host annual fundraising events, and assist individuals in need. We stress support for educational opportunities and assistance for area students. Southport Lions Club has been and continues to be a cherished community resource.
