LIONS MEET CENTENNIAL SERVICE GOAL!!!

 

To honor the 100th anniversary of Lions Clubs International, Lions Clubs around the world were challenged to serve at least

100 million people in four areas--Youth, Vision, Hunger, and the Environment--by June 30, 2018.

 

This was a lofty goal for the Centennial Service Challenge -- but Lions worldwide achieved the goal!  In fact, they did it at the halfway point of the Centennial Service Challenge.

 

Where there is a need -- there is a Lion!  WE SERVE!!!

Lions logo over the years

DID YOU KNOW??

The roots of District 2-T2 began in 1922 when a Lions Club was formed in Snyder, TX. It failed to go -- but on August 28, 1924, the "granddaddy" of all our clubs was chartered. At that time, it was the 51st Lions Club in Texas and the 761st club organized in the world. At that time, there were only 39,943 members in the U.S. and Canada (Source: 1977 -78 District 2-T2 Windmill newsletter).
