melvinhjonesLions International was founded by Melvin Jones and a group of Chicago businessmen who in 1917, met once a week to find ways to help the poor in the city of Chicago. As their interest grew, several other groups of like minds began to take notice of their work and eventually they joined as one group and formed the Lions Club.hellenkeller

In 1925 at the Convention in Cedar Point, Ohio, Helen Keller was the guest speaker and she challenged the Lions to become “Knights for the Blind” and that grew into an organization of worldwide proportions that has spent millions of dollars in an effort to eradicate Blindness and to assist those who are blind, or sight impaired.

Lions Club International Foundation, Lions Clubs all over the world are fighting blindness and achieving tremendous progress - from China to Chile, Ethiopia to Ecuador, and La Grange to Crestwood, LCIF is making a difference, restoring light and preventing blindness for millions.

Lions Clubs International. Diabetes research (the leading cause of blindness) and direct assistance to those who have it, and work with the Hearing Impaired are programs started in the late 1980’s.

Around the turn of this century, the Lions began a program designed for preschool children of ages 2-5. This program is called “KidSight”. With the aid of a special camera an Ophthalmologist can determine if a child has certain eye problems that can be corrected at an early age to prevent needing corrective eyeglasses later in their childhood.

LCIF and Lions are collaborating with the Measles Initiative partners to rescue children worldwide from measles. Measles is one of the world's deadliest vaccine preventable diseases: 450 children die each day. Yet, for less than US$1, we can vaccinate one child for life. Help us save 157 million children this year. Be a part of the solution through the One Shot, One Life: Lions Measles Initiative by supporting LCIF through the Gates Foundation Challenge Grant. For every $2 raised by Lions, the Gates Foundation will donate US$1. Together, LCIF and the Gates Foundation will provide a total of US$15 million to fight measles this year. Learn more at www.lcif.org.

As part of nternational President Wayne Maddent year of World of Service theme, he is challenging Lions to participate in the Reading Action Program to focus on increasing literacy and access to learning resources through their service.

Literacy -- the ability to read and write -- is the foundation for education and social development. Yet, hundreds of millions of adults lack minimum literacy skills and millions of school-aged children are not attending school to obtain them....

The Reading Action Program is a call to action for every Lions club around the world to organize service projects and activities that underscore the importance of reading and address specific needs related to illiteracy within their own community.

The South Oldham Lions Club history traces back for more than 66 years. The club has accomplished a variety of community events and improvements. The club was recently recognized by Senator Ernie Harris and the Commonwealth of Kentucky Senate for the long history of community services upon the event of their 60th anniversary.
