• The Sherborn Lions are…
  • Members of the world’s largest and most active service club organization.
  • People who have decided to give back something to their communities; who are dedicated to helping people in need; and who meet those needs in an efficient, caring way.
  • Men and women who believe that, by working with other dedicated Lions, they will accomplish far more for their communities than would be possible working alone.
  • Committed to solving major world health and social problems, and realize that solutions are possible when every Lions Club does its share.
  • People who cherish the friendship and fellowship of their own Club and also feel a close kinship with 1.5 million fellow Lions in more than 210 countries and territories around the world.
  • Patriotic. They give allegiance to their country and recognize that all people must one day learn to live in peace.
  • Dedicated to maintaining the highest ethical and moral standards in their Club—and in their personal lives.
  • Serious about their commitment to humanitarian service, but don’t mind having a little FUN along the way!
  • Someone just like YOU!

In 1917, Melvin Jones, a 38-year-old Chicago business leader, told members of his local business club they should reach beyond business issues and address the betterment of their communities and the world. 

After contacting similar groups around the United States, an organizational meeting was held on June 7, 1917, in Chicago, Illinois, USA. The new group took the name of one of the invited groups, the "Association of Lions Clubs," and a national convention was held in Dallas, Texas, USA in October of that year. 

Within three years, Lions became an international organization. Since then, we've earned high marks for both integrity and transparency. We're a well-run organization with a steady vision, a clear mission, and a long – and proud – history.

Today we are the largest humanitarian organization in the world with 1.47 millions members in 210 countries.
