Melvin Jones, who was a 38-year-old Chicago business leader, started the Lions club in 1917. But in fact the name “Lions,” which stands for “Liberty, Intelligence, Our Nation’s Safety,” was decided a few years later since he started. As perceived from the motto “We Serve,” it has aimed to serve communities, meet humanitarian needs, and encourage peace. Under several codes of ethics and purposes such as to unite clubs in friendship, good fellowship and mutual understanding, the Lions has 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members over the world.
The University Of Minnesota Campus Lions Club is 1 of 400 Campus Lions Clubs around the world. It is part of the world’s largest service club organization. We aim to make a difference by helping, whether it be community service or raising money for worthy causes. All funds raised by Lions are 100% used for charitable purposes.
“Lions Club is a unique club compared to many on campus. We are an international club that an individual can participate in for a lifetime. Lions Club bases most of their community service off campus to get involved in the Crookston Community. We volunteer and have a fun time while doing so. We impact not only the campus, but the community too!” - Katie Hagen (Lions President)
“The things I expect out of the Lion’s Club are doing volunteer work, creating connections with the community, and most importantly, learning what it means to have responsibility.” - Chia Moua (Lions member)
The Lions club on campus presents a number of activities and programs.
Upcoming programs: Computers at the Villa, Food Bank, Adopt-a-Highway, Cleaning Woodland Park, and Book Drive.
The Lions club on campus, which currently consists of 15 responsible members, plays an important role as a leader, devoting passion and effort to local community development. Everyone who is excited to volunteer a number of community services and promote continuous ties between UMC and Crookston, is always welcomed to the regular meeting. The next meeting will be at 5:15 p.m. on October 15th.
