Lions Club of Ardmore, Founders Club:  Lions clubs have an illustrious history dating to 1917.  Lions Club began in Chicago when Melvin Jones invited a group of businessmen to Dallas and presented the idea of a service club.  The club was to provide service as a group without regard to politics, religion, or race.  A conference of some 25 clubs met in Dallas on June 7, 1917.  Ardmore was one of those clubs! 

For 100 years Lions commitment to serving those in need has never wavered, although the ways in which Lions clubs serve their communities have evolved to keep pace with an ever-changing world.  Our 1.4 million members perform valuable service in 210 countries and geographic areas (these statistics are from the LCI website.)

What does it cost to join Ardmore Lions Club?  Membership fee is $75.00 per quarter, which includes your lunches at Casa Romo, 120 W. Main Street, Ardmore.  Membership without meals is $90.00 annually.  The club meets the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month.

We Serve is the official motto of the association.  What better way to explain our mission?

 

The Slogan is Liberty, Intelligence, Our Nation's Safety.

The royal colors of purple and gold were selected as the official colors when the association was organized in 1917.  Purple stands for loyalty to friends and for integrity of mind and heart.  Gold symbolized sincerity of purpose, liberality in judgment, purity in life, and generosity in mind, heart and purse to those in need.

The legal name of the association is "The International Association of Lions Clubs".  It's entirely proper, however, to use the shorter form of "Lions Clubs International".

The current Lion emblem was adopted at the 1919 convention.  Today, Lions throughout the world are recognized by it.  It consists of a gold letter "L" on a circular purple (or blue) field.  Bordering this is a circular gold area with two Lion profiles facing away from the center.  The word "Lions" appears at the top, and "International" at the bottom.  The Lions face both past and future - showing both pride of heritage and confidence in the future.  Always wear your Lions emblem pin proudly.  And, since it's a registered trademark in most countries, remember it may never be used for commercial or fundraising purposes without prior permission from the Legal Division at International Headquarters.

Lions are members of the world's largest and most active service club organizations.

Lions are committed to solving major worldwide health and social problems, and realize that solutions are possible when every Lions Club does its share.

Lions are patriotic men and women giving allegiance to their country, while recognizing that all mankind must one day learn to live at peace.

Lions are dedicated to maintaining the highest ethical and moral standards in their club; and in their personal lives.

Lions are serious about their commitment to humanitarian service, but don't mind having a little fun along the way.

Lions are.... or could be... someone like you.
