OSCODA LIONS CLUB

WHO WE ARE


                                                                                            




The Lions Clubs trace their beginnings to one man, Melvin Jones, who in 1917 with the leaders of 23 independent service clubs in Chicago, formed an association known as the Lions Clubs. Three years later, in 1920, a Lions Club in downtown Detroit sponsored a Lions Club in Windsor, Canada, thereby creating the International Association of Lions Clubs.



In 1925, Helen Keller, at an International Convention in Ohio, challenged the Lions to become "Knights of The Blind in the crusade against darkness." Assistance to the blind in all forms has been our most prominent goal ever since.


The Most Beneficial Speech Ever Given at Any Lions Convention




The Oscoda Lions Club was formed in 1963 in  Oscoda Township, Michigan,  and was sponsored by the Tawas Lions Club. As such, the Oscoda Lions are a part of 43,000 clubs worldwide with over 1,417,000 members.
